Municipal decision making and engineering risk

Dear Editor:

This is an open letter to the City Council and mayor of the City of Hoboken:

Regarding  the downtown hotel proposal discussed and voted upon at the recent council meeting, I  must insist that, before embarking on a full council second vote, both the City Council and Mayor educate themselves and discuss the critical engineering, risk, and decision management  issues brought up by several public speakers.

To vote without this critical planning discussion is to neglect your role in representing the constituents of this city and also is to prove your avoidance of duty to obtain the knowledge necessary to cast an informed vote.

Yours in Health & Safety,

Melissa Blanco
