City of Hoboken hard at work!

Hoboken Bike Patrol: Rusty frame in violation!

Hoboken411 reader Steve mentioned this busted up, rusty, wheel-less bike “remnant” over on Washington Street between 7th and 8th. Noting that instead of just cutting the chain and placing this heap of metal in the dumpster – the city actually placed a “violation sticker” on it – “As if the owner is going to come back for that trash, and pay the fine? This is just lazy of Hoboken!”

Your property tax dollars hard at work!

Hat tip to Steve for also providing the Turkish Cuisine conversion at Hoboken Cottage, too!

H411 Have you eliminated the showing of the council meetings? I only see where you can view them “live”

I saw about 15 of these on Monroe today, some pretty comical. I saw some violations for “not sweeping daily” and another for “placing garbage on curb prior to 9PM”.

I got one of these, confronted the city worker and he said came down from “upstairs”. I guess city got so many calls that they were going to send out warnings instead. He said “be prepared for more of this.”[quote comment=”203899”]I saw about 15 of these on Monroe today, some pretty comical.

If they just cut the lock and threw it away we’d see a story on Hoboken411 that read “City of Hoboken Steals Your Property!!!”

For some reason my neighbors had this same yellow Violation sticker affixed to their front door today. When I walked by later I saw they had attempted to remove it, but since it was a sticker the majority of it and the sticky residue was still left.

Maybe it is required to give the bike a violation before they can remove. Since it is private property I don’t think the city can just take it away without first letting the owner (even in this case the owner hasnt used the bike in years) that it is in violation. Similar to cars how they get a ticket first before they are towed or seized (unless its a health/safety violation like blocking a hydrant).
