Hoboken Week(s) in Review – 12/2/2007

12/2/2007:

Happy Holidays to the 100’s of new readers that have signed up since the last Hoboken Week in Review. It’s been a couple weeks, and I’ve decided to mix up the format a bit today.

Instead of various featured stories that were covered recently, I’ve taken the Top 20 most commented posts published or “bumped” in the past three weeks. So catch up on the “hot talk” in case you missed anything!

don’t know if the announcement was posted elsewhere just saw this on the web, re: the City Council meeting this week:

City Council meeting moved to tomorrow
“The City Council meeting initially scheduled for Wednesday has been moved to tomorrow to avoid a conflict with Hanukkah, city spokesman Bill Campbell said.

Here’s a look at the agenda. Note one of the items on the agenda for first reading: “An ordinance amending rates for garages owned by the city of Hoboken.” That, and the next item about taxi cabs, both appear to be related to Mayor David Roberts’s budget proposals – he suggested raising rates at municipal garages (which are mostly used by non-resident commuters) and raising $1 million by issuing more taxi medallions (at the last auction, they raised a little over $1 million by selling five medallions).”

Hey 411. I like this format. It allows me to see some posts that I actually missed and pulls together the hot topics. Maybe you can do this weekly and even throw in the ones that you feel need to be brought to our attention. I would also like to see a “Happening this Week” post. If an event is time sensitive but was posted a couple of weeks ago it can go into the “Happening this Week” pile on Sunday so we have a guide to the events that we may have forgoten about and will be happening in the coming week. Just a thought.
