  1. John, they waited too long for this announcement. This should’ve been done two weeks ago! It amazes me how inconsiderate North Bergen is with their parking enforcement. Making it a huge income for the town should not be an excuse in time of crisis. Plus where does that money go? The town looks like s***. The streets have craters the size of boulders. Smh…let me just stay quiet. Thanks for the news
