I understand the backend programming aspect of RR and really appreciate the work the DB Admins do, it takes a lot of effort. However that being said people need to come to the realization the Bergen County section will never be as accurate as it can be, just because of the way the RR DBs are setup.
So apparently you're telling me that Bergen County is so incredibly different from anywhere else in the United States that the standard procedure which works for the rest of the United States won't work in Bergen County? I don't buy it.
I may not have scanned Bergen County, but I have traveled fairly extensively to a variety of places in the United States and Canada. While I've found every one to have little local eccentricities of its own, I have yet to visit anyplace where the standard policy wouldn't work.
RadioReference policies have been developed over several years to provide consistent results which work for as many scanners and users as possible. While we obviously can't suit everyone, the standard layout has been proven to work well for the greatest number. If the standard layout doesn't suit your needs, that's unfortunate, but you're more than welcome to massage the data from RR in your programming software to suit your own needs.
I have looked at the Bergen County page, and while there is some cleanup needed (especially with alpha tags and some duplicate frequency/tone combinations), I really see no major problem with the data. If you have specific suggestions for ways Bergen County can be rearranged within the framework of the standard database policy, I'm all ears. But the policy stands as is, for Bergen County just as for the rest of the country.
