Hey City Hall, we’re thirsty (dogs too!)
Hoboken Fountains for dogs not working?
While I always recommend dog owners bring their own water in the warmer months (like the convenient Pet Top device), Hoboken411 reader Mary said that many dog fountains set up in the city are not working.
She emailed City Hall in the beginning of June – and “Director” of Health & Human Services Leo Pellegrini said they were working, but would have them checked out anyway. She sent a list of all the broken fountains, and nearly a month later – they’re still not fixed. “Typical!” she said.
Mary hopes that the fountains will be working again before winter arrives.
Hoboken Water fountains no good!
Here’s a Hoboken411 reader mail about the lack of operational water fountains in Hoboken… and don’t go blaming the budget, either!
What’s up with the drinking fountains?
“Many of the drinking fountains (water fountains) in the parks along the waterfront are broken or turned off. How can we convince the city to fix them?
- There’s one in between bathrooms at the newly turfed soccer field, which does not work. (those bathrooms are also a disgrace…)
- There’s one at Pier A (in front of The Melting Pot fondue place), which does not work. This one also has a dog fountain attached (lower to the ground), which does not work either.
- And there used to be one near the north ferry terminal, across from LUA, which was removed completely at some point.
So what’s the deal, city hall?
