What? Hoboken needs FREE help?

Massive property taxes – Hoboken needs free help to clean sidewalks

warning hoboken asking for volunteers for basic city servicesWow if this one doesn’t make you FUME, I don’t know what will. Hoboken has a MASSIVE operating budget – which should include ALL ESSENTIAL SERVICES (and beyond). But guess what? They’re trying to GUILT people into “volunteering” to help clean the city. You know what they’re doing (behind the scenes?)

We heard from sources, that they’ve contacted various “community organizers” around town asking for VOLUNTEERS to gather at City Hall on Saturday, March 22nd at 9am “to help clean up the streets of Hoboken.”

In doing so, they’re using the cover of “positive influence” to trick people into thinking that this type of circumstance is for the betterment of the city. Sure, it can appear that way on paper.

But what happened to the very BASIC SERVICES from the city for your quarterly property tax bill? And they still need your help (and blame it on the weather) – You have to ask yourself “what are you doing with the $100+ million dollars every year?

  • Giving themselves and their friends dramatic pay raises?
  • Hiring dozens of law firms for basic cases that should be handled in-house?
  • Pointing fingers and sending press releases instead of getting off their butts?
  • Stealing even more money for minor parking issues – even when they DON’T clean the streets?

The Mayor gets a fat six-figure salary with lavish health benefits – and they have the nerve to ask for FREE HELP?

Someone should organize a CITY HALL PROTEST for the same date & time. Dust off your pitchforks, people! Don’t let them fool you! If you don’t want to protest – take pictures of the volunteers. Then post online with the caption “SUCKERS.”

    You can’t bash volunteering to keep the city clean! Even if it means for a crooked administration! Volunteering is great! Hooray! Next we’ll volunteer to help fill potholes and fix broken street lamps, too. Why not? 😕

    Some nerve to ask for help with what they charge residents. It’s not like we had a disaster or epic event.

    Litter in this town is terrible–one of the things that really pains me when walking around on a beautiful weekend morning. However, I don’t think we as citizens and taxpayers should have to get involved, because we are not the root of the problem. The contributing factors need to be addressed by the city.

      IFORGOT, right the root cause is failure to provide essential city services such as street cleaning, snow removal and street repair. All the while the city claims to save money on trimming salaries it is these employees that performed public works jobs that were hit. Their salaries were very small and many part-time. Just the raises that Zimmer and cronies gave directors and her 30% to the in-house attorney and the in-house social boys, would more than cover the compensation of the street cleaners.

      Also the outsourced garbage contractor dumpx`s alot of the garbage on the streets while they turn the can over to empty it. Also the street cleaning sweeper come along and half the trash remains embedded on the street. All the while you and I are being towed for steer cleaning to the tune of millions annually.

      I cannot emphasize enough that the work is not getting done by technology, Directors or outsourcing. Public works needs to be budgeted for.

      DO NOT FALL FOR THIS BS. Go to facebook and see some of the “after” street cleaning pics at #stinktown.

    Ya didn’t see this one coming did ya! 😯 HAHAHAHA lets increase alll the directors salaries more than the amount of all the public services workers laid off. We will all kick back and the masochistic tax payers will clean the streets.

    Look at the root cause folks the City is failing to providing essential services. Why don’t we just pay the city more and clean all the Council members homes too!!! ❗
