Hoboken government could come to a halt if council doesn?t pass emergency funding
Officials say it is possible the Hoboken City government could come to a halt Wednesday if a budget isn?t in place for city service employees. The City of Hoboken is nearly $8 million over budget. Since September, city officials have been doing business by using emergency appropriations. But earlier this month, the City Council failed to come up with the six votes needed to pass additional emergency funding. With no appropriations, employees won't get paid. The state has ordered the City Council to pass emergency funding, but they have until Wednesday to comply.
