Internecine Bike Share battle: Jersey City declares war on Hoboken!

The following report from Jersey City comes courtesy of Jeannette Josue of the Hudson County View.

The Jersey City Council unanimously passed an ordinance establishing regulations for the use of publicly owned bike racks, but Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer says it "serves no governmental purpose" and is "nothing but political grandstanding."

“You can’t operate business on public property without permission however this will prevent us for any need to going to court. This really makes it very clear to people that while the sharing economy is great and it’s something that we want to encourage, if you are using public property, you need permission,” stated Ward E Councilwoman Candice Osborne.
