Hoboken Week in Review: 1/16/2011

1/16/2011:

The most noteworthy posts for the week ending Sunday, January 16, 2011:

Politics and City Happenings

  • Regular Snow StormWe had an average snow event last week, and the city did their job (for the most part.) Kudos to the Hoboken Police Department – who carried pretty much all the weight.
  • Council AsylumAn emergency meeting last week to allow the city to continue spending money before officially adopting a budget. Again, much divisiveness amongst both city officials and members of the public.
  • Board of EdNearly 60 million bucks is spent annually for our school system. Many residents I’ve spoken to truly believe there’s some witchcraft taking place behind closed doors. We’ll find out soon enough, right?
  • Water Main EpidemicAnother hot streak if you were betting FOR the water main breaks in Hoboken. I think we had four in five days – including that gusher on Willow Ave!

Crime and Incidents

Inspirational Quote of the Week:

“All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.”

– T.E. Lawrence
