HOBOKEN -- Mayor Dawn Zimmer made a brief appearance at Wednesday’s council meeting to present a proclamation to the family of recently-deceased city employee Freddie Moret. Moret died unexpectedly two weeks ago while on a church retreat to Italy, of complications due to asthma.

Speaking at the front of the chambers surrounded by many members of Moret’s family, Zimmer recounted how “Moret had saved lives” during Hurricane Sandy by driving one of the city’s payloaders through flooded areas picking up trapped residents and moving debris.

The mayor announced that the city would rename its municipal garage after Moret, which his daughter Stefanie described as “truly an honor.”
