City Hall takes care of themselves

8/1/2008:

We’ve all heard the phrase “there’s no money in the budget.”

However, when the air conditioning needs repair at City Hall, they sure seem to “find” the money (and the contractors) to fix their sweltering offices!

Take a look at these hard workers fixing the climate control downtown. “Hey, I can’t make really good bad decisions unless the office is under 72 degrees! Call those guys STAT!”

Meanwhile, residents are being swallowed up by potholes across the city. But what does the Mayor care? He’s “chilling out” in his plush cool office!

[quote comment=”97366″][quote comment=”97346″]So what if the municipal employees wanted the air conditioning fixed? I’m sure those of you who work outside your home want a comfortable work environment, not to mention a brief lunch hour to take a break from your daily grind. It is against health codes to have employees work without air conditioning, call Frank Sasso, Health Officer and find out the required temperature. :P[/quote]
An hour for lunch? Unless you’re getting paid hourly, or have a unionized job, I can’t imagine anyone in the professional world actually taking their hour lunch. I bring lunch and eat at my desk as I’m doing email, and sometimes still can’t eat before 2 or 3pm.[/quote]

i often take the full hour of lunch, but that means i am at work for 9 hours. i can take 4 hours if i want, as long as i do 8 hours of work. it just depends on if i have conference calls and whatnot since people love to schedule them at noon.

i see no problem with the AC getting fixed, but I walked by their the other day and couldn’t help but think about the budget problems when I saw that happening. Oh well. AC getting fixed is at most a couple hundred bucks, doubt this broke the Hoboken spending records.

An hour for lunch. Lucky folks I get 30 minutes, which I eat at my desk most of the time while still doing work.
