HUDSON COUNTY – There’s plenty to read in the various editions of the Hudson Reporter newspapers this weekend.
If you’re used to picking up meals at a curbside food truck, you’ll be interested to know initiatives are underway by the city councils in Jersey City and Hoboken to levy much higher fees and regulations on food truck vendors. Some operators claim the new laws would drive them out of business.
Our Jersey City paper has a story about an author who has written a new book about Jersey City’s former mayor, the legendary Frank ‘I Am The Law’ Hague.

Have you noticed those blue solar panels sprouting from light poles around Hoboken and other areas of Hudson County? The Hoboken Reporter has a full story about how they came to be, and why they will not save utility rate payers any money.

Our papers in West New York and Union City have a profile of Pastor Brigit Solano’s food pantry at the Good Shepherd Church. And if you’re in the market for a $3.45 million house overlooking the river and Manhattan skyline, our reporter will take you on a grand tour.
