HOBOKEN - The city of Hoboken is replacing coin-operated meters with electronic machines. The city will also start to enforce a long-ignored rule, a two-hour parking limit.

Mobile food vendors such as Ali Gomah say that they are worried about pending changes. Gomah worries he'll have to move his truck every two hours to avoid a fine.

However, some business owners like the idea of the city enforcing the two-hour parking limit to increase turnover and free up more spaces for their customers.

City officials say they will work with mobile food vendors on a compromise, but there is no word yet on when the City Council will draft an agreement.

A spokesperson for the mayor of Hoboken says people who need to park downtown all day can get a discounted rate of $5 at certain lots and garages.
