City Council Special Meeting 10/31/2007
Update! Meeting canceled!
I bet the Mayor saw this post and canceled it, but uses other excuses for the reason why.
Hoboken budget to be announced
Mayor David Roberts picked a spooky date to unveil his proposed budget for the fiscal year that’s been underway since July 1st. Yesterday, the Mayor called a special meeting for Halloween night to unveil the Tricks and Treats in his Fiscal 2008 spending Plan. Traditionally Roberts gives a brief speech before presenting the budget to the council, which then refers it to the Budget and Finance committee for review and discussion.
Roberts called for the Special Meeting to be held Wednesday at 6pm at City Hall, which may not sit well with the council members who have children they would like to be Trick or Treating with. City Hall conspiracy theorists surmise the Mayor picked the date to mess with Council President Theresa Castellano, Budget, Finance Committee Chairman Michael Russo, and Chief Financial Officer George DeStefano who are normally knee-deep with work related to the Anthony Russo Civic Association’s Annual “Hoboooken Haunted House”, taking place this year at Church of the Holy Innocents.
