Passaic mayor: Streets are ‘nacho space’

Passaic Mayor Hector Lora criticized residents there who dug out of the snow and saved their parking spots with assorted items this week.



"You don't get to call dibs on public property," he says. "We need to clean it and maintain it."



On the streets around Theodore Roosevelt School, residents saved spaces with items like chairs and garbage cans.



Lora says that creates and obstacle for snowplows. To dissuade residents from doing it, he's launched a humorous campaign.



"If you call and say, "Mayor, I'll gladly remove my chair," then I will gladly bring you a bag of nacho chips, and we can agree this is nacho space," Lora says.
