Tonight’s special City Council meeting: Municipal Garage

Up to bat tonight is the City Council tackling the real issue of where to put a temporary Municipal Garage.  Since the list announced by the mayor’s office, there’s been a real lack of heat on the issue.  Perhaps the 3rd ward residents realized they had been victimized by their councilman, Mike Russo, the hobo over at Hobo411, neighborhood real estate interests and political operatives who had participated in a rumor mongering paranoia campaign.

It’ll be interesting to see who shows up from the 3rd ward and also the public as a whole.  More interesting will be who stands up to speak on the matter and offer their own perspective on NIMBY and what other location should be considered instead of their own.  There are some interesting selections available from Jersey City to the aggressively priced Pino’s.

Hopefully we’ll see some real hard work done by the City Council and not a partisan show with grandstanding wasting our time and money.  There’s been far, far too much of it.

3rd ward residents’ attendance has been falling since the Sunday Special meeting.
Will they show up tonight in big numbers or do they know they have been used?

Da Horsey will be reporting from City Council Chambers and providing onsite observations over at the Hoboken Journal’s live chat.  The Jolly Green Giant is running the best live commentary on the City Council proceedings.

There’s a long agenda other than the issue of the Municipal Garage so this could be a late evening.

Tune in to the Hoboken Journal for some laughs to get you through it:
