It boggles my mind as to how inept Hoboken is at clearing snow from the streets and crosswalks.
If you get updates from the City via e-mail or text you will have seen an alert sent out Sunday February 9, 2014, at about 10:14 a.m. advising residents that starting February 10, parking enforcement will be back on and plows — instead of the street sweeper — will be used to clear parking lanes.
Then at about 2:22 p.m. another alert comes out stating that because of ice, parking enforcement is suspended because trying to plow the ice may damage the equipment. Allegedly a back hoe will be used to clear empty spots of snow in the meantime.
That’s what you get for waiting a week to clear snow. Any normal town or city with predominantly on-street parking would have cleared the snow within 48 hours.
Embarrassed that we supported Dawn Zimmer for re-election. She should know that clearing the streets and crosswalks of snow (and now ice) is more important to City residents than her silly diary.
