Hoboken411 has learned the secret location Mayor Dawn Zimmer plans to relocate the Municipal Garage is in the heart of a developing residential area. Zimmer plans to move the city’s garbage trucks, open dumpsters of waste, snowplows and road salt piles into the shadow of new condos, apartments and the Jubilee Center. Though the administration has refused to reveal the location – even under City Council urging – 411 can report Zimmer will place it onJackson and Monroe between 6th and 7th streets.

This Wednesday’s City Council agenda (5/19) includes a public hearing and final vote on a $2 million bond issue to build a “temporary” city garage at an undisclosed location. Zimmer’s council majority intended to pass the bond before letting the public know where they planned to build it. They’re trying to get it done before the neighborhood learns what they’re up to. 411’s investigation led to sources who confirm four contiguous properties owned by Theresa Pino are the subject of city negotiations. The site is largely abandoned after once serving as part of the city’s towing and impound lots, but the surrounding area has recently been developed with residential housing. Right across the street is the“Julianna” apartments. On the Monroe Street side of the block new condos have been built. Some are so new they haven’t been sold yet. All their bedroom windows will overlook the 24/7 operations of the city garage if Zimmer’s secret plan is approved.
