Village Manager Jim Ten Hoeve Set to Retire?

In Jim Ten Hoeve, Ridgewood New Jersey, VC, Village Manager on March 6, 2009 at 6:22 am

It is being reported that Village Manager James Ten Hoeve will soon be retiring from government service and moving to a job in the private sector. Unconfirmed reports are that Mr. Ten Hoeve plans to accept a management position with MBIA, a holding company headquartered in Armonk, NY, whose subsidiaries provide financial guarantee insurance on municipal bonds.

Following an noteworthy observation made by many Village employees and taxpayers several weeks ago that Ten Hoeve was no longer commuting to and from work in an official motor vehicle, rumors began to fly that he was on his way out. Fueling these rumors were line items on at least two separate Village Council Meeting Agendas recently; both listing the topic of closed session/private Council discussions as “Village Manager’s Office.”

Mr. Ten Hoeve began serving as Ridgewood’s latest Village Manager sometime in 2004, this after several months of his service as Acting Village Manager (following the retirement of Larry D. Worth in the Fall of 2003).

Information obtained from http://www.datauniverse.com shows that Ten Hoeve earned $168,659 in 2007 as Ridgewood’s Village Manager, and an additional $8,000 in the same year from Totowa Borough, where he served as that municipality’s Chief Financial Officer. 2008 salary data is not yet available on line.

  1. well good luck to him.

  2. Note to self: Quick, sell my MBIA stock!

    Now, can we get rid of the worthless department managers who have been walking all over him like a bar rag for the past five years?

  4. Finally, and hopefully, we might have someone in that position who would put the interest of the Village’s residents FIRST.

  5. Remember we had the goofball Larry Worth before we got Ten Hoeve. They might bring back another loafer.

  7. I hope the Village Council requires tne new Village Manager to live in the Village. They allowed Ten Hoeve to keep living in Hawthorne.

  8. Can the VC possibly find a competent candidate who doesn't enjoy relaxing with a bottle of booze?

    Strike two so far (Worth & Ten Hoeve); let's not make it strike three VC!

  9. We need to have a lot of public imput on this one — in this economy we should be able to pick up a sterling candicate. There is no need to settle on any more half baked, half-bagged, half-wits.

    And whoever suggests promoting from within Village Hall should be shot at dawn!!
