Business as usual over at the circus tent city hall this week.

But here’s a little food for thought to plant in your head. You want to know the top three recurring expenses in Hoboken every two weeks?

  1. Police Dept. (around $550k)
  2. Fire Dept. (around $500K) and…
  3. Hoboken Parking Utility (over $150k)

The first two can be argued “contribute” somewhat to “quality of life” in Hoboken. The third? No way.

Oh Jesus. Looks like the “merry go round” of parking shenanigans continues. Some company called “Amano McGann” is getting over $325k to take over those God-awful robotic parking meters? At what point do you stop pouring money down the drain and go back to coin-operated meters?

Also – The Mayor wants to selectively waive “client attorney privileges” in the hopes that someone will give her “Diary-Gate” more credibility. Wonder if we can waive client attorney privileges for anything we want now? How convenient!

Most of today’s meeting is monkey business as usual,” but one item of note is how Hoboken was blatantly over-charging drivers who got towed “administrative fees.” They initially said they did no wrong, but then realized they were busted. The culprit? “Clerical error.” Right. Who’s dotting the i’s and crossing the T’s? No one, until they get caught.

Boy lots of legal contractors getting lots more money! What is the purpose of a “contract,” if the “not to exceed” amount is constantly going higher? Might as well save everyone time and make the amount like 100 million dollars. Getting “magically ridiculous” at this point…

After all the snow-clearing-ineptitude the city showed in the last two weeks, expect some members of the public to let the council know. Additionally, watch the condescending responses from certain council members.

Wonder what political drama will impede city business this week. Anyone with a executable plan to cut the size of city government (and the bloated budget) 75% would be my hero.
