The Bottom Line
Saturday’s day long Budget Workshop offered some useful moments and Claire Moses of Hoboken.patch.com captured some of the important late highlights but we’ll suggest you take a look at the tape yourself. Scroll over to the 2:47 mark and listen to Finance Director Nick Trasente explain the underlying importance in examining the essential area of “the amount to be raised” and it’s eight percent drop. Go on and continue right to the end here to see an important exchange among Council members.
We’d like to note there’s a reason why Councilman Ravi Bhalla was the largest vote getter in the Council elections last year. MSV would like to commend his recognition of the voters. We’ll have more to say when some of the dust clears after the press conference tomorrow afternoon when Mayor Zimmer will weigh in as well.
