Hoboken run by amateurs!

More water main breaks! {VIDEO}

Welp, it appears that the city continues it’s long-running streak of screwing ordinary things up. As they were paving uptown, they broke a water main, and pretty much wrecked the day for uptown businesses.

the vibration of the milling machine is what did it

This has happened many times before, where the spray painted markings didn’t match what was underneath. No oversight from city hall. The last thing we need is a major gas line explosion to ruin the party.

Water main breaks like this are inexcusable. Clearly they just didn’t pay attention to the markings made by the Water Co.
What really concerns me is that if they can’t figure out where the water lines are, how do they know where the gas lines are? I’ve said this before, I have been watching this whole paving debacle going on almost all summer and I have seen very little, if any, presence by the City Engineer or any other responsible City official at the locations being paved. Someone needs to be held accountable for this and the other water breaks that have resulted from these paving projects. Sorry to say it, but the buck stops at the Mayor’s office.
With City Council campaigns about to kick into full swing, why have we not heard any of the incumbents or their challengers clamoring for accountability? I can understand the silence from the Mayor’s puppets, but what about the others? This paving project has been a mess from the start and seems to be getting worse every day.

Was informed that multiple wedding rehearsal dinners were completely ruined by this water main break as restaurants could not prepare food. It’s clear nobody on city council gives a rats ass whats going on around here! Where in the hell is the accountability for such basic screw ups!!
