Veteran Memorial botch in Hoboken
How hard can it be? War Memorial botch in Hoboken
Back in August of 1944, Hoboken resident and Army Private John Martocchia was killed in action. And when the WWII Memorial down by Sinatra Park was installed, it was supposed include his name. It did, but was not spelled properly. The family has been trying for YEARS to get it repaired.
“mayor” Zimmer has known about this for quite some time, and she’s pointing the finger at the council to approve $5,000 of property taxpayer money it will cost to fix it.
This boils down to two things:
- It’s either the city’s fault for providing the incorrect spelling to the contractor, or…
- The contractor screwed it up, and the city should not have to pay a dime to get it fixed.
Either way – what a god damn waste of money it was.
