The final meeting of 2014! (like an early Christmas present or something…)

Nearly five dozen ordinances and resolutions. Looks like every single lawyer the city brings in gets more money than originally agreed to. Must be nice to spend other people’s money.

Oh boy, more chatter about the damn “reval,” and now the “mayor” is changing HER tune, and instead of “rolling” assessments, she is suggesting an “every six years” model. Isn’t that wrong too? I thought the city liked pretending to follow the letter of the law. Aren’t reassessments supposed to happen every 12 or 15 years? What is all this nonsense.

Anyway – it’s still a waste to talk about property revaluation until you come up with a better system of taking money from residents maintaining a community like Hoboken. And we’re a LONG way away from that!

And of course, more $$ for lawyers, and another $12 million on the city “credit card” as they laughably try to solve the flooding problem in town. Good luck with that!

The unusual Monday meeting is because the city will partying it up down in fledgling Atlantic City this week for the annual NJ League of Municipalities “conference.”

If you take a look at the event guide – it looks more like a conference on how to extract money from the constituents. Although there appear to be some sensible topics, all of them are about tightening their hold on ordinary citizens, and none about how to REDUCE the size of government. Sad.

Anyway, with all attention Hoboken has received in the past few years (especially Hurricane Sandy), you’d think they’d be experts at something. Perhaps running one of the dozens of “sessions.” But I guess our city (or administration) doesn’t carry much clout these days. Mere spectators in a state full of professionals, I guess.

If anyone sees any Hoboken officials acting inappropriately down there – please be sure to snap photos!

  • Congrats to Ken Ferrante for being appointed Hoboken Chief of Police. Good guy! Hopefully he doesn’t ass-kiss the administration!
  • And of course, thousands of property-taxpayer bucks for lawyers, etc.
  • Jump for joy. 27 new bike racks to clog sidewalks being deployed throughout the city.
  • Hoboken is also getting involved with the whole ebola quarantine racket as well…

  • Up again this week is the $5 million LOAN the city wants for MORE robotic parking pay stations! Circling the drain, I tell ya!
  • (Your) “Pocket Money”: $170k to spruce up a local fire house, $150k for a planner to draw pictures of trees on First Street, and $70k for a planner to make drawings of what “redevelopment” would look like in NW Hoboken.
  • And another quarter million bucks for lawyers. Maybe if the city was competent, we wouldn’t need ANY lawyers. But that, sadly, is not the case…

  • Bust out the CREDIT CARD again! The city wants to BORROW $5 million for MORE robotic parking pay stations! What the hell? At this rate everyone in NJ will have had their car ticketed in Hoboken.
  • Some good news – certain members of the council want to BAN red light cameras. We agree. Fuck big brother!
  • And tons of other “municipal mush,” including progressive rubbish about “transit villages,” “safe streets” and “bikeways.” In case you haven’t woken up yet, those buzzwords are just code for “more government control” and crony contracts.
