City Said Not to be Conducive to Small Businesses

PERTH AMBOY – Businessman Pedro Wilson was concerned about the parking payment machines and high water bills.

“In Perth Amboy we have no way to win. If the parking machines are not working, it should be noted. Instead the Parking Utility are giving us parking tickets. Who is going to spend all day in court to defend a $30 ticket? People can’t be bothered. They just go and pay it. A business came in from New York to open up a business in Perth Amboy and they were hit with a $10,000 water bill. We’ve had no elections of Chamber of Commerce Officers and they had to sell their property on Smith Street. Perth Amboy is not friendly to the small business community. I don’t go to any of the events of the Chamber or PAMA. There are almost 2000 foreclosures in Perth Amboy. Half of them are bank owned and the other half are due to owing back taxes.”
