Updates And Reminders From City HallTweet
Hoboken, NJ - Monday, February 28th, 2011
In response to an incident with a dog in Church Square Park, the City has checked all light poles in the park and is working with PSE&G to check all light poles in the City. Unfortunately, numerous plates from the light poles have been stolen, and the City is working to have new plates made with a locking system for the protection of all Hoboken residents and pets. Caution tape has been placed on light poles with open plates which are of concern and will be fully repaired as soon as possible. If residents see light poles with open plates, please report them to Environmental Services at 201-420-2049.
Property Tax Reminder
Residents are reminded that in the fall of 2010, they received a tax bill for three quarters along with the corresponding due dates. This was due to the change from a fiscal year budget to a calendar year budget. In addition to the tax bill for the 4th quarter of 2010, there is also a stub for February 1st, 2011 due on or before February 10, 2011 and another for May 1st, 2011 due on or before May 10th, 2011. Residents may check their tax calculations online at http://www.hobokennj.org/proptaxes. The last day to pay before the tax sale is April 7, 2011.
Sidewalk Caf� Opening
April 1st will be the first day of sidewalk caf� seating. The Administration had hoped to have a new Ordinance in place that would have allowed a mid-March opening, but it has not been adopted by the City Council. Therefore, the dates and times of operation will remain as they were last year.
Applications for 2011 caf� licenses will be available from the Zoning Office for restaurant and food establishment owners and operators beginning March 1, 2011.
St. Patrick�s Day
Law enforcement will again be enforcing a zero tolerance policy on various violations including consumption of alcohol/open container in public, urinating in public, maintaining a nuisance (disorderly and unsafe house parties), disorderly conduct & improper behavior. Fines of up to $2,000 plus community service will be issued.
Residents may download and post a zero-tolerance flyer and a letter from Chief Falco from the City website:
