Advisory: Discounted Parking Extended & Parking Meters Suspended; Drivers Urged to Stay Off Roads

Due to the snow and ice which has made parking more difficult than usual, the City of Hoboken is taking steps to help residents with parking.

The discounted rate of $5/day in municipal garages for residents with valid permits is extended through Sunday 8:00pm in order to keep as many cars as possible off the street.

Parking meters are suspended through the end of Sunday to provide additional parking options for residents. Please note that Washington Street is a snow emergency route. Parking will be permitted on Washington Street once the snow has ended and the street has been deemed sufficiently cleared. An announcement will be made at that time.

Due to the extreme weather and road conditions, the Hoboken Office of Emergency Management urges everyone except first responders and those in medical and transportation fields to remain off the roads unless absolutely necessary. Drivers who get stuck will impede plowing operations and first responders.

Sherman braves the snow

Former councilman Tony Soares sent in a photo of his friend Sherman taking on the elements.
This my friends is a real snowfall so man your shovels and dig ye neighbors out while you're at it.

Earlier, Da Horsey saw one lithe woman jogging in the snow and wondered why would you be doing that right now? This is one sticky snowfall befitting cross country skis.

Full disclosure, former councilman Tony Soares has advertised on MSV but this photo is timely and Sherman actually enjoys taking on the elements.

Sign of the Times: Hoboken public snubs Beth Mason again

Free Coffee and Donuts can't overcome Beth Mason's pariah status in Hoboken

Beth Mason spent lavishly publicizing free coffee and donuts earlier this week at a wildly popular reopened eatery on upper Washington Street. But from a public Facebook photo, other than Mason's paid staff and those working at the restaurant, the public showed its disdain for the councilwoman who has long ago lost support in the second ward. (We're not counting the Applied Housing votes paid with over $50,000 in street money putting her actual votes in 2011 at a cost near $200 per vote.)

Ironically, the Beth Mason permanent mayoralty-in-exile campaign continues to be an outright bust. This time she invaded the turf of the popular fifth ward Councilman Peter Cunningham.

There's toxic and then there's Beth Mason toxic.

Ghost town - Beth Mason hosted a free coffee and donut event at a wildly popular reopened eatery on upper Washington St. 
earlier this week but the public chose breakfast elsewhere.
