On the Agenda: City Council to Vote on More Than $200G in Sandy Recovery Cost

The City Council is meeting on Wednesday night at 7 p.m.

The City Council is supposed to vote on more than $200,000 in Sandy recovery cost on Wednesday night.

In one resolution, the city is asking the council to approve a $175,000 contract with Amano McGann, Inc. for the replacement of the city's revenue control equipment, which was damaged during Hurricane Sandy.

In another resolution, the council will vote on $68,386 to replace two trucks and its accessories. The city is looking to buy two 2013 Ford E350s for $34,193 each.

David Google Venice and see their pans , there are also sea walls up and down the Mississippi River. They do work, but it does transfer the water somewhere else. There are also levees, particularly in Louisiana.

You are forgetting the 5% one time shot. Also the fact that Hoboken is one of the top 3 towns in NJ in providing tax relief under Mayor Zimmer. Her promises were made before the economic collapse. The additional 10-15% went down with Lehman and Bear Stearns. In the meantime what has your side offered? Cutting the pay of our Directors and the Mayor, saving $100-125,000? Of course that would lead to Hoboken going back to unqualified political patronage individuals that your side loves, because anyone qualified probably wouldn't take the position at that rate. Mayor Zimmer has cut millions and your side offers spit.

DC also built a flood wall. My mom and I picked a seafood restaurant to sit on the terrace to enjoy the Potomac. A flood watch was issued and we had to eat inside. Despite the worries about this article those in the restaurant said the wall did indeed work: http://voices.washingtonpost.com/capitalweathergang/2010/11/dc_floodwall_enough.html
