Hoboken wet weather pump on the brink @ 7:00

Hoboken will be most interested if tonight's special City Council meeting can muster six required votes for its second wet weather pump. The pump which will be built underground by Maxwell Place was previously approved unanimously by the City Council.

A needed second vote however saw Council members Beth Mason and Terry Castellano reverse course and vote no leaving the measure one vote short of a required six to pass.

Timmy Occhipinti and Michael Russo were not in attendance last Wednesday so how they may vote tonight will be decisive. It would not be surprising to see neither Beth Mason or Terry Castellano not showing up at all. They can vote no by simply being absent from the special meeting putting the other two votes front and center.

The special City Council meeting begins @ 7:00 pm.
