Hoboken Council Meeting of May 4, 2011
What’s on tap tonight?
Candidates who haven’t sworn an oath of allegiance to Mayor Dawn Zimmer may have an extra spring in their step after the candidates she supported suffered an overwhelming defeat. It’s the second loss in a row for Zimmer, who failed to rally the forces in her own home ward for ex-councilman Michael Lenz in November. Independent members of the City Council are hoping the third time is the real charm, but in the meantime there is bi-weekly business to attend to.
The agenda included Zimmer’s proposed $2 million settlement with the Andriani Five until Hoboken411 broke the news and the outrage grew. It’s been pulled from tonight’s agenda.
The resolution opposing Zimmer’s plan to turn the Municipal Garage into a 24/7 towing and impound lot remains on the agenda, but moves up to item #6. There will also be some more talk about the $101 million budget Zimmer proposed, despite running on a platform to “cut taxes 25% in the first year alone.”
