Mumps Cases Confirmed on Stevens Campus


Health officials today confirmed several cases of mumps on the campus of the Stevens Institute of Technology. The cases were first identified as suspected cases last week, and there have been no reports of new cases since last week.

“The City’s Health Department has been working closely with Stevens since the beginning and we are thankful for their responsiveness and proactive efforts,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “Every precaution has been taken to ensure the safety of the public. The best way to prevent mumps is vaccination. Members of our community should follow the recommendations from health officials and contact their doctor if they believe they may have symptoms. We will keep the community informed of any new developments.”

The New Jersey Department of Health has created a flyer of Frequently Asked Questions regarding mumps: www.state.nj.us/health/cd/documents/mumps/mumps_public_faq_04172014.pdf.

Mayor Zimmer Delivers State of the City Address

State-of-the-City-2013
Mayor Dawn Zimmer delivered her fourth State of the City address on March 18, 2014 at the DeBaun Auditorium on the campus of the Stevens Institute of Technology. Her prepared remarks are available below.

As Prepared for Delivery —

Thank you all so much for being here tonight. Since there’s been some debate about me in the news, I’m going to start off on a personal level, so you can understand more about who I am and my perspective in life and how that carries over into my approach to governing this City that I love so much.

As some of you may know, I lost my dad to cancer just about one year ago on March 31st. Losing my dad got me thinking that I need to focus much more on family and being healthier. I’m trying to build exercise more into my weekly schedule. I’m trying to cook more for my family and eat right – very proud that somehow I got my teenage sons loving Brussels sprouts with this easy recipe that my sister-in-law introduced to me. I recognize that striving to be healthy is a journey; it is a process; it is something that we all have to keep working towards as we put our goals into action. Being healthy ensures that we can not only survive but thrive in our lives. Read the rest of this entry »

Hoboken Cove Boathouse Survey

boathouse
Marvel Architects will be working with the City of Hoboken and the Hoboken Cove Community Boathouse Group to develop a program and design for a new boathouse to be located at Hoboken/Weehawken Cove at the north end of Hoboken’s waterfront. The community is invited to complete an online survey to provide an understanding of how the waterfront is currently being used and what the public would like to see at the boathouse.

The underlying goal of the boathouse is to provide water access and engagement through community non-motorized boating activities. The next step is to define the program of spaces required to support this goal and better define the activities that the boathouse should be designed to support. The City will also be holding community meetings this spring to refine the design.
