HUDSON COUNTY– In this weekend’s Hudson Reporter newspapers you’ll find the blend of news, features, sports, and entertainment you’ve come to expect.
In Hoboken, we pull together the various large redevelopment projects proposed for the Mile Square City into one clear snapshot and tell you the status of each, assess the fallout over allegations of voter fraud from the Nov. 2 election that may be handed to the county prosecutor this week, take a close look at efforts to make it easier to install solar panels on the city’s rooftops, and tell you what happened when a class of grade school kids lobbied the mayor asking for a ban on plastic bags.
In North Bergen, the twenty year mayoralty of Nick Sacco has paralleled the township’s revival, and we have his thoughts on his career. You’ll also read about a meeting with Galaxy Towers residents worried about Guttenberg’s ongoing property revaluation.
Jersey City small businesses have banded together to offer discounts on goods and services called “Make My City,” and we have a three page feature of who’s participating and the events they have planned. Opposition continues to grow against the natural gas pipeline Spectra Energy wants to run through Jersey City. The City Council came under fire last week from city workers for its plan to merge the Department of Public Works into the Incinerator Authority, and we have an interesting profile of a female Afghanistan combat veteran.
The opportunities and perils of one-party rule are explored now that the Secaucus Council is composed entirely of Independents, and well as how the town has used or misused the impact fees it collected from the developers of Xchange, and we have a story that says, believe it or not, many municipalities still allow residents to pay their taxes in cash, despite the potential for mischief.
All this, plus a profile of Hoboken’s Wicked Wolf Tavern, the place to go for sports and rib-stickin’ food, in this weekend’s Hudson Reporter newspapers.
