“I am truly honored to receive this award, which is a testament to the collaborative efforts of our community in advancing parking and mobility initiatives,” Sacco said in a statement.
“This achievement is shared with all of the dedicated individuals who have worked tirelessly to enhance the quality of life for our residents.”
The event took place at the Cardinal Restaurant in Atlantic City, where Sacco was joined by friends, family, and other supporters including Hudson County Commissioner and NJ Parking Institute Vice President Robert Baselice, who introduced him at the event.
“Throughout my time as the director of the North Bergen Parking Authority, Mayor Sacco’s support has resulted in the creation of over 675 new parking spaces, which has had a tremendous impact on the quality of life of our residents,” Baselice added.
“As we gather to recognize and celebrate excellence, there is no one I consider more worthy for his contributions to our community, vision, and dedication than my friend, Mayor Nick Sacco.”
Monetti, a longtime North Bergen resident, founded the NJ Parking Institute in 1968 and he assumed the role of chairman of the North Bergen Parking Authority board with Sacco’s support.
Additionally, he served as a board member of the Governors NJ Transportation Committee and as the director of the Fort Lee Parking Authority.
Sacco was honored for his contributions to the North Bergen community and Camden Mayor Vic Carstarphen acted as the host and master of ceremonies.
