Poverty and Family Homelessness up in Bergen County

Poverty and family homelessness are up in Bergen County – NorthJersey.com.

Bergen County is one of the wealthiest counties in the nation and yet it has not been spared by the economic crisis.

At the same time, county governments, useless contraptions inherited from feudal times, consume about 25% of property taxes state-wide.

That is the  staggering sum of between $12 and $15 billion every year, almost half of the entire state budget.
