Last week's water main breaks were debilitating to our businesses and residents. The situation is under investigation by the BPU. It may become apparent that markings were inaccurate, or a subcontractor was negligent. Would like to think our local papers will continue to report on the matter, but don't count on it. I will continue to do my best to bring you updates.
In the meantime, please see the follow excerpt from the Administration on how you can file a claim for damaged caused by this mishap.
"Any resident or business who suffered a loss as a result of the 30 inch break on Thursday, March 28th can submit a claim directly to United Water. They can call Debra Hummel at 201-750-3408. The City will also be submitting a claim for our expenses on that day.
Those that know me, understand I am not one for the bad politics and gamesmanship that is far too common on our eight member city council. Poor roads, parks, buildings, and utilities only continue to hurt us, and those who wish to visit Hoboken and support our economy. If you are not in the 5th Ward, reach out to you councilperson and tell them to knock it off and stop the gamesmanship.
