To pump or not to pump?
City of Hoboken announces:
City to Hold Public Meeting Seeking Public’s Input on Underground
Wet Weather Pumping Station
City of Hoboken, March 3, 2010 – The City of Hoboken announced today that it will hold a public meeting on Monday, March 8th at 7:30 p.m. in the City Council Chambers at City Hall to update the community and discuss the design of the underground wet weather pumping station which is being constructed by the North Hudson Sewerage Authority on the south side of Observer Hwy between Hudson and Washington streets.
The full amount of the estimated $14 million cost for the project will be funded by the Authority. Five million dollars of the project will come from a federal stimulus grant. The balance of $9 million will be financed through the Authority’s participation in the New Jersey State Revolving Loan Fund which provides long-term, low-interest infrastructure loans to qualified entities.
“Providing the public with an update about the pumping station and getting their input into the design of the facade of the structure is vital, Mayor Zimmer said.
Among those attending the meeting to discuss the project will be representatives from the North Hudson Sewerage Authority, Mayor Dawn Zimmer, Transportation and Parking Utility Director Ian Sacs and Community Development Director Brandy Forbes.
