Zimmer Vetoes City Councl Majority Down Vote on Rec Fees

Dawn Zimmer had a press conference at 3pm today at the Multiservice Center. She announced that she is returning Ordinance Z-76 without signature thereby vetoing the repeal of the $25 rec fees voted in by the new Council majority last night.

She remarked that it is common for other municipalities to charge fees while being mindful of waiving the fees for those families in need. She stated that Hoboken can not ask the taxpayers to subsidize the total cost of the recreation prgorams as the reason for her veto.

A more detailed update is forthcoming. ◦
