Hoboken Disables Prepaid Parking Passes for City Vehicles

May 27, 2010

HOBOKEN, NJ - The City of Hoboken, N.J., disabled all 160 of its prepaid parking transponders after the results of an audit found they were not being used by city vehicles, according to the Hudson Reporter.

The transponders were intended to be used like EZPasses for city vehicles and police at city garages.

In October 2009, Mayor Zimmer directed Transportation and Parking Director Ian Sacs to conduct an audit of all active Municipal Parking Garage transponders. The audit was completed in January 2010. Director Sacs identified about 160 active devices that were not associated with a City vehicle and had them disabled.

One Municipal Garage employee was recently arrested for using one of the non-authorized transponders, according to the Reporter.

"The arrests ... are a result of the Mayor's efforts to restore integrity in government and the cooperation between the City's directors and the Hoboken Police," according to a statement on the City's Web site.
