Sr. City Sources: IF HOSPITAL CLOSES, EXPECT MASSIVE EMPLOYEE LAYOFFS

MILE SQUARE VIEW EXCLUSIVE 

High level sources close to City Hall state should the hospital close, expect immediate substantial contraction in the City’s workforce to make up for the heavy burdens to repay a $52 million bond and other related costs with a hospital closure.


“The City is committed to making massive layoffs in order to cover the costs,” one of the senior sources bluntly stated.

At the same time, the City will be mindful to spare the taxpayerto whatever extend possible,” the source added.

After a hospital closure, the sources also warned to expect services to be hit “across the board.”

During closed session, Mayor Dawn Zimmer makes an emphatic plea to save the hospital.  This photo was taken from outside City Council Chambers.



Talking Ed Note: Similar to the Beth Russo hydra’s attempt to strip the City of any surplus and catapult Hoboken’s budget into crisis, last night’s action is a continuation of the strategy to starve the city whenever possible to attack the Hoboken taxpayer.

The obvious intent is to force the mayor to increase taxes.  The strategy which will succeed this time should the hospital be closed will be opposed by some strenuous effort within City Hall.
