Special council meeting tonight
To cover the items left off last weeks agenda, the Hoboken city council meets tonight to discuss taxi ordinances. Raising the fare and new medallions. Taxi drivers are a bit upset, saying there are enough cabs already, and during off-peak times they’ll be twiddling their thumbs waiting for fares.
This special meeting is at 6pm, instead of the usual 7pm.
In other news, the grass-roots environmental group “Why don’t you walk, you lazy asses?” disbanded due to lack of support.
