“Out of order”

Dear Editor:
Everyone knows that parking in Hoboken is an issue but come on now enough is enough! I recently opened a new business in Hoboken. One of my employees came back to the shop to pick up a few supplies. Within 15 minutes the van was booted. It was parked in a resident only spot and we don’t have a resident sticker but how about a little common decency!
It’s clear our shop is right there and can’t the parking authority just come over and give us a warning? They come in when they need to use the bathroom, which is now “out of order”! $150 to get the boot removed and $68 for the ticket! Welcome to the neighborhood!!
