6th ward Councilwoman Jen Giattino’s cleanup call draws over two dozen volunteers

Councilwoman Jen Giattino’s family marshaled more than two dozen volunteers on Sunday to tackle the thorny problem of illegal notices posted all over public property.

The effort drew more than two dozen volunteers and although planned as a 6th ward event, the manpower allowed it to spread out further in the Mile Square City.

A utility pole at 8th and Garden Street showed signs of a recent cleaning

The following areas were cleaned up:

Clinton between 3rd and 6th
Willow between 3rd and 14th
Park between 3rd and 8th
Garden between 2nd and 8th
Bloomfield between 2nd and 8th
Washington Observer to 14th
Hudson between 2nd and 14th
8th St. between Willow and Hudson
7th between Clinton and Hudson
6th between Clinton and Hudson
5th between Clinton and Frank Sinatra
4th between Clinton and Frank Sinatra
3rd between Clinton and Hudson
2nd between Garden and Hudson

Councilwoman Jen Giattino commented on the first time efforts saying, “Unbelievably, we were able to clean far beyond the 6th Ward today! I am so proud to be part of such an amazing community.”

Most Hoboken residents are not aware an ordinance exists that advertising should not be posted on public property such as utility poles or signs.  The cleanup effort restored much of Hoboken’s town character.

Talking Ed Note: Councilwoman Jen Giattino submitted no promotional pictures for this event.  There is no personal website with personal congratulations or promotion.  That speaks louder than anything.

Congratulations to all those who participated showing civic pride in Hoboken.
