“Litter Control” campaign launched
The Mayor is now stepping up on the junky sidewalk mail that has plagued Hoboken residents forever with a “zero tolerance” policy. Why now, when you could have done this around election time, David?
First of all, not sure if city code is updated on this website, but it says this ordinance is 110-45, with “Muddy tires” being 110-44… either somethings wrong, or that site needs to be updated.
Secondly, what about the Hoboken Reporter? I’m sure that can be classified as an advertisement because 1) it’s free, 2) it’s not a subscription specifically requested by residents and 3) it’s jam-packed with advertisements, often on the bag itself! If they say the Reporter is OK because it contains “useful information,” then I recommend all future flier-creators add a helpful and relevant Hoboken tip to each of your fliers to enjoy this loophole as well.
From the city website:
Let’s stop those unwanted circulars.
Mayor David Roberts is launching a quality of life campaign by once again offering residents the “No Advertisements” decal in an effort to halt unwanted circulars that litter the community.
“Residents rightfully continue to complain that these circulars and other unwanted papers like menus litter our streets on windy days and are an eyesore to our wonderful community,” said Mayor David Roberts.
“We are going to strictly enforce this ordinance in our community,” added Mayor Roberts. “The distributors of these circulars are on notice that summonses will be issued to any individual or group illegally placing them where there are ‘No Advertisement’ decals.”
The City has launched a campaign through its Web site, hobokennj.org. to allow residents to order the orange and red “No Advertisements” decals to place on their front doors. At the site, visitors can click on the button “No Posts” to receive a new or replacement sticker.
These decals display City ordinance number 110-44 which enforces penalties for unwanted circulars distributed in front of buildings.
I’d like to hear what any council person has to say about the garbage they left behind during the elections… Say something.. anything.
