Judy Tripodi – Public Safety, medical costs and the future of Hoboken (pt. 5)
In this final segment of the audio interview MSV inquires on the January 30th Budget Workshop and any role Judy’s team is playing in that upcoming event. The next item is the earlier planned police personnel adjustments, and Judy explains why it never happened.
Concerns from the public about public safety being top heavy is the next topic. The fiscal state monitor addresses this in detail and her desire to get management adjustments put into place via the existing civil service system.
The big ticket item of medical costs is then discussed and how the City is looking to implement some remedies against the most expensive old style health care plans and update it to the more current state model.
Last, Judy offers her overall assessment on the town’s future while eliminating the “ghosts” of the past.
MSV wishes to thank Judy Tripodi for all the time discussing the questions of the day on the Hoboken budget. She did not limit any questions or follow ups at all and in total the interview went for a full hour.
