Mayor Zimmer statement on 2013 budget, hails 10 percent tax reduction

Office of the mayor announces:


STATEMENT FROM MAYOR ZIMMER ON ADOPTION OF 2013 BUDGET

“Last night the Hoboken City Council adopted our 2013 budget. I am very proud that my Administration has reduced municipal taxes by approximately 10 percent since 2009, despite the financial upheaval that has caused property taxes to increase in many other New Jersey municipalities. While I do not agree with the City Council's choice to defer important projects, this is an excellent budget consistent with the budget my Administration introduced in March. A special thank you to Council President Cunningham for his statesmanship and Budget Chair Giattino for leading the budget process to a successful completion.”
