Parking headaches continue for residents
Hoboken Parking Utility is ripping us off!
From Hoboken411 reader Jim.
“I just wanted to share just another story about the Hoboken Parking Utility ripping another person off.
On Wednesday, Dec. 7th, two “No parking” signs were put up 8 feet apart (1 taped on the parking sign and 1 taped on the tree about 8 feet apart from each other) on 11th st between Hudson and Washington reserving the 2 spots for Saturday, Dec 10th.
These signs reserved two parking spots as they were 8 feet apart. I parked in the 3rd spot. On Saturday, I received a phone call stating that my car was going to be towed because I parked in front of the signs. I walked outside and saw that the sign on the tree was taken down AND MOVED to the fence right where my car was parked. I immediately protested this to the parking agent, Jeffery Romero, who stated that “someone originally took the 3rd sign down.” This was not the case though because I live right here and saw for the past 3 days, only 2 signs, which is why I felt it was safe to park there in the first place. After moving my car, the parking agent then allowed another personal car of the movers to take my spot. The parking agent was standing right next to it and he said that personal cars are allowed to park in front of the “No Parking” signs and that he would not give them a ticket. I know this is not the case.
Just another case of the Hoboken Parking Utility ripping us off.”
