Statement from Mayor Bhalla on Leprecon

"Thanks to the hard work and collaboration with Hoboken Police Chief Ken Ferrante and our public safety officers, I’m pleased that the unsanctioned “Leprecon” event is continuing to lose steam and is a far cry from the destruction of previous years," said Mayor Ravi S. Bhalla. "My administration has made a substantial effort to engage with a number of bar owners about “con” events, and as a result, an all-time low of only four bars participated, and I thank those establishments for their assistance. And, this year, less police and financial resources were spent by the Police Department than before. I am very grateful to the members of the Hoboken Police Department, Hoboken Fire Department, Hoboken Ambulance Corps, Union City Police Department, and Department of Environmental Services for their efforts Saturday and working to keep our City safe."
