Parking Director Ian Sacs to Leave Hoboken

The mayor announced some changes in her team on Tuesday.

Mayor Dawn Zimmer announced on Tuesday that Director of Parking and Transportation Ian Sacs will be leaving his job with the city as of October 15. 

Sacs, who has been with the city for about three years. Sacs will be moving to Europe, according to the mayor's announcement. 

The Parking and Transportation Department has seen innovations under Sacs, such as the corner car program and multi space meters around town. 

"Ian put Hoboken on the map as a leader in progressive transportation initiatives," said Mayor Dawn Zimmer in her statement. "He brought us new technologies like multi meters and an online permit sale system, started a nationally-recognized car-sharing program, set into motion years of roadway safety design improvements, expanded customer service hours, made our streets more accommodating for all users and reduced car crashes with pedestrians and bicyclists, eliminated garage waiting lists, and expanded our shuttle system and bicycling infrastructure. I can’t thank him enough for all he has done for Hoboken."

Sacs said his choice is difficult, but "best for our family."

"It has been a sincere pleasure working alongside (Mayor Zimmer) and her team of stellar professionals," Sacs said.

No, the chief is not her lapdog. However the mayor constantly talks about safety. The cycling laws are all about safety. Once a "reformer" becomes a politician hypocrisy and pandering for votes always sets in. It is inevitable.

Lol all if you are stupid. This is a cover up, as fake as lady gaga's music. This is hiding something, and you sheep go right with the herd

I don't understand the city council. While all the city directors are insanely overpaid, Sacs actually did seem like he knew what he was doing. Unlike Pellegrini - who is a complete jerk. Communicates like a caveman, totally unprofessional (do me a favor Leo - next time we have a meeting, spit your gum out, please. You chomp like a 12-year old girl) and a horrible manager. Leo has absolutely no qualifications for the position (previous position: managed the travel agency at HSBC. Gonna guess he earned about $80K - if that). Understand the Mayor won't hear a bad word against him. What is up with that?

Pretty elaborate cover-up, what with moving to Europe and all...... Maybe you shouldn't post at midnight after a long day of "pounding 'em down."
