Hudson County View reported on the public fusillade erupting which comes after NY Waterway has taken possession of the former Union Dry Dock site intended for ferry refueling and maintenance.
New York Waterway has rejected an invitation by Mayor Ravi Bhalla to present their Union Dry Dock plan at a public town hall-style hearing, escalating their feud over a potential new ferry refueling and maintenance station.
New York Waterway responded noting public comments predicting their failure at the location:
“We do indeed plan to discuss our plans openly and transparently with the people of Hoboken and with the tens and thousands of people who ride our ferries. We shall do so tirelessly and rigorously,” NY Waterway Chairman Armand Pohan wrote in a letter to Bhalla today.
We have already begun to do so. Thank you very much, but we hardly need the feigned ‘assistance’ of someone who has publicly proclaimed that we will only occupy our own property ‘over my dead body.'”
Mayor Ravi Bhalla returned fire on Twitter:
For the complete story, please see the Hudson County View:Surprise! NYWW doesn’t have the guts to meet w/ residents w/ their own plans. Instead they’d rather continue spreading misinformation & running scared from the public. We won’t be fooled by a NYWW- a morally bankrupt actor prioritizing corporate profits, ruining our environment pic.twitter.com/qY6eHMKn4y— Ravinder S. Bhalla (@RaviBhalla) May 6, 2019

Union Dry Dock. It isn't changing.
