Improvements: Brett is doing a fantastic job in making Ridgewood a better place. It takes time to get everything done, because Brett, Pete & Chuck can only do so much a day. He is waiting on permits from Venice to remove the mobile homes destroyed. He has a contract company ready to go. Shuffleboard area will get a new look with a permanent roof covering them. He has a lot on his plate & we need to be patient because it will happen.
