A proposal to split off a Borough of Ramsey from Hohokus Township was advanced. A group of Ramsey citizens heard that some in Mahwah were planning to form a Borough of Mahwah and forestalled their move by proposing their own split. A surveyor was hired so that neither their the old or new area would have an unfair proposition of either population or assessed valuation. The population of the new borough will be between 1,700 and 1,800, only the Ramsey School will be in the new unit. It is expected that much progress can be made in both areas as they will no longer be competing for revenues and improvements.
