HHA Special Meeting @ 7:00 in City Council Chambers

Tonight a short meeting will be held at City Hall with a resolution weighing the addition of  administration to the scope of the special counsel's investigative responsibilities.

The recent fiasco of agency checks not being cleared at PNC Bank turned out to be a simple administrative matter of rotating approvals to the new HHA Chair Dana Wefer.

Wefer publicly announced an unnecessary roadblock was due to HHA Executive Director Carmelo Garcia refusing to address the issue after a week of her effort to make the administrative change from the prior agency chair.

Garcia who's open insubordination toward the HHA is an ongoing public record back two years ago is already in hot water as he's offered some less than plausible explanation for why he awarded millions in vendor services to firms without HHA Board of Commissioner approvals or within governing federal procurement policy.

MSV exclusively reported some of those same firms gave thousands of dollars to Carmelo Garcia's political committee back in March.

Since this is a federal meeting, the City of Hoboken will not be telecasting the proceedings.

HHA Executive Director Carmelo Garcia is facing additional scrutiny if a resolution passes tonight at City Hall
in a special HHA meeting expanding the review of an ongoing special counsel investigation into the HHA.
