No major snow this winter?
What if no major snow storms happen in Hoboken this winter?
We all know that Hoboken has never had a good record when it comes to cleanup after a major snow storm. Some years worse than others, but generally sub-par.
And the winter of 2014/2015 has gotten off to a very slow start – and according to some meteorological geeks, we may be stuck in a pattern that doesn’t see any chance of a “big storm” until at least mid-February.
But what if we get NO major snow? What happens to all that money “budgeted” for snow removal?
If that happens, property taxpayers should demand an instant rebate (say $50 each). I’m sure that would help the local economy a bit (“free dinner!”)
Of course, the city will dole out some lame excuse – and normally they just “steal” that extra money to fund crony pay-raises. But it sure would be nice one way or another to make it through this winter unscathed!
