Street cleaning suspended in Hoboken

HOBOKEN - City officials have suspended street cleaning in Hoboken due to the ice and snow, relieving residents who don't have to move their cars and take on the task of finding new spots. 

On some streets in Hoboken, cars are still encased in ice and any empty spaces are full of ice and snow. City officials say they're going to suspend street cleaning until the temperature rises above freezing. 

"We obviously can't move the ice right now and we don't want to ticket people," says Director of Environmental Services Leo Pellegrini.

The city also won't be plowing parking spaces for the time being for fear the ice will damage plows, but they will be bringing in backhoes to clear spots when cars move.
