Dear friends and neighbors:
Tonight is Budget Hearing #2 that will cover the following departments:
  • Hoboken Police – 6-7pm
  • Hoboken Fire – 7-8pm
  • Environmental Services – 8-9pm
You can tune in online HERE or on FB Live.  Please tune in or better yet, attend in person and participate in the hearing! 
If you are one of the many who have asked me about how we are funding the maintenance of all of our parks, cleaning our streets and sidewalks or enforcing safety on our intersections and sidewalks, then you should come tonight and ask our these questions directly! 
As Chair of the Finance and Infrastructure subcommittee, I will be presiding over the hearings.  As I have mentioned previously, the budget that has been proposed by the mayor has an almost 3% tax increase and includes depleting our surplus.  Our job now is to determine if there is any further opportunity for us to reduce the burden on taxpayers, yet still support the necessary services to improve (or at least maintain) the quality of life of our residents.
Please join or watch this important hearing tonight.
As always please forward this to anyone you think may be interested in this.  And feel free to reach out via email, text or phone (201-208-1674) about this or anything else important to you.      
Best wishes,
Hoboken City Council, 2nd Ward
