Hoboken City Council meeting: months long effort on parking additions on tap tonight @ 7:00
The City Council meeting tonight will have a few big items such as a parking ordinance changes up for consideration. There’s been internal work reviewing options over months between parking and the legal department and Councilman Peter Cunningham is looking to now move on that front with Extended Parking Zones. The primary alteration gives some added spaces and Ian Sacs, Hoboken’s legal department and the Councilman have performed due diligence within the updated State of NJ’s law.
The extended parking zones will retain public safety as the primary focus.
Last weekend Councilman Cunningham also expressed an interest in tweaking the almost decade old four hour visitor parking rule. Unlike the phony politically coordinated story by former Hoboken resident and Fox NY reporter Joel Waldman and Hoboken411, there may be something positive on that front to emerge as well.
Councilwoman Jen Giattino has met with food truck vendors again and is looking to work in some additional parking hours to make the lunch and dinner time frame more economically viable for food truck vendors. There’s an additional meeting on tap to iron that out before the ordinance will be brought back at the next meeting. The ongoing effort puts to rest the false claims there was no give and take on the ordinance.
Tim Occhipinti has a complaint about graffiti. This will surely provide for comic relief. More on that later.
