Field upgrades

Hoboken upgrades little league field. Roads remain shoddy

Perhaps I’m being a bit too logical here. But say you owned a brownstone in Hoboken. You have certain yearly expenses, as well as a budget, and (hopefully) a regular income. How would you handle ongoing (planned and unplanned) outflows during the year?

You put aside money to “upgrade” your bathroom later in the year. But you soon realized that your basement had a fairly severe leak which was causing ongoing damage (worse by the week). The available cash you have can do one of the two. Wouldn’t you pick the most urgent need? Even if you have to postpone the bathroom job?

I guess that’s what normal households do.

But have you driven around Hoboken? Each and every road is skull-rattling. Worse by the week. Yet the city somehow finds funds to upgrade the little league field? Shouldn’t the city “borrow” whatever funds were set aside to make something “look nice,” and fill more pressing matters?

Batting cages for fat kids that will never amount to any seven figure professional player. And even if they did make the big leagues, you think they’d ever send any of their income back?

While I agree with your opinion that they will never send their income back and beyond that, probably not become a professional player. However, the “fat” part is a tad bit unnecessary.

One would think that basic human rights, health & safety are primary but not in Zimmer’s world. Every failure is an opportunity to lay claim to a best plan that will be a brilliant model for the rest of the nation to follow. Sorry to point it out but it is just smoke and mirrors to take the focus off the total lack of experience and understanding of basic principals of public sector management. Instead she treats it as some big marketing scheme with Juan Meli at the control and her assistant as a do-nothing physical presence at City Hall.
