Instead of it always being a reactive approach with this type of issue, why not do a full audit of our sewers and water pipes and start budgeting for a systematic overhaul. Throw a few cameras into the pipes and lets have a look see !

When was the last time the city dedicated and managed a plot of land to developers exclusively for those on welfare or lower income ? There is no reason the city could not build, manage and fund (initially) a building that ran as a non-profit to cater to those mentioned.

Yeah it is called the projects. It's been done 10 times over.

15 minutes on hold, but the guy was very nice and very patient. There is currently no boil water advisory, but you should run your taps for a bit to clear out any accumulated debris/whatever.

They're searching for a main break along the Monmouth & Third to Fifth area. Call in with your address, they were surprised when I said where I lived.

I strongly recommend assuming a boil water advisory, considering how many hydrants they're flushing and the smell/taste of the water.

Re: Jersey City to restructure police department for first time in two decades

What concerns me is the bonding we do for terminal employees, employees who leave government. Tonight, the city floated $7.5 million, Fulop took out $2 million from the budget to pay overtime. That $2 million was earmarked for terminal leave. So if you hire new cops that will eventually make $100,000 in ten years, what will we bond for terminal leave when those employees leave in 25 years?

Segregation in the Jersey City Public Schools
#34
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


A lawsuit, filed early this month by The Children First team (seek link to PDF file below) seeks to identify racial and economic segregation within Jersey City Public Schools, starting with the Frank R. Conwell PS#3 primary school in downtown Jersey City where there appears to be division between the poor black and Hispanic students and white, upper income students in the Prek Dual-Language Program.

Observers report that on the school’s first floor, where the Dual-Language Prek classes neighbor the non-Dual-Language/General Prek classes, the disparity can be clearly seen with the majority of Black/Hispanic students in Non-Dual Language/General classrooms.

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of the Children First Team by Open Public Records Act (OPRA) attorney, Walter Luers, Esq, who is also a board member of the advocacy group, New Jersey for Open Government (NJFOG). The suit demands "Free & Reduced Meal" application data from the Jersey City Board of Education in order to glean the racial and economic breakdown of Prek-4 classes at PS#3 for the past three years. Children who are “Approved” for free or reduced meals are classified as low income or poverty whereas those who were “Denied” are deemed upper income. The applications also indicate the student's race.

Initial reports collected by Children First indicate an economic disparity as much as 70% upper income to 30% low income in Prek 4 classes in PS#3 during the 2013-2014 school year. This year, Children First has learned that in one Dual-Language class, only a single student out of fifteen (15) is classified as low income/poverty. Meanwhile, the majority of students in neighboring non-Dual-Language/General prek classes are classified as low income/poverty.

The Dual-Language program at PS#3 has become a highly competitive program for downtown parents seeking the opportunity for their children to benefit from small classes and a Spanish-English learning environment. There are typically only 15-30 spots available each year with four to five times as many applicants. However, applications have declined in recent years as parents complained the district does a poor job of informing them how and when to apply to the program.

Children First has also learned of complaints of unfair sibling preferences in the program. Last year, spots were awarded first to siblings of children already in the program, though there is no official “sibling policy” in the district according to the Early Childhood Department. This practice resulted in very few non-siblings accessing the program, further exacerbating the racial and income divide in the school's Prek population.

The lawsuit is pending a court date.

Current board members, Sangeeta Ranade, Jessica Daye and Bertraum Okpokwasili (currently running for school board) all have children in the Dual-Language Program at School #3. Board member Ellen Simon has a child in the Dual-Language program at PS#5.

The Children First Team of Gina Verdibello (5H), Lorenzo Richardson (1H) and Gerald Lyons (7H) believe that ALL children are entitled to a quality education -- regardless of income, race or class. As board members, they will be committed to advocate for balanced and equal access to advanced and specialized programs for students across the city. Vote on November 4th for Gina Verdibello (5H), Lorenzo Richadson (1H) and Gerald Lyons (7H) for Jersey City Board of Education.

it happens every year and often in the same locations throughout the city - One would think cityhall would investigate, but since it appears to be a seasonal thing, it will never be a priority.

I often thought it's due to some authority flushing out the sewer or main water supply on an annual basis

I got through to United Water after maybe an 8-min wait. They have inspectors looking into it. They are aware of the issue but said it's good to have a record of affected addresses.

Hello Parkman,

Thank you very much for this detailed information. Appreciate it. Decided against planting next to the tree. On the hunt for good affordable planters and maybe a deep pot too.

Thank you for the free bulbs.

Our kids have been going to Dr. Lustiger's office for the past few years. Can't say enough good things about him and the other dentists there. And as a bonus, Dr. Lustiger is an avid Eagles fan.

Every hotspot that has a fatality due to speed or failing to stop at a red light, should be fitted with red light cameras and speed cameras in the specific stretch of road - No if's or but's ... a fatality should mandate an immediate camera.

It seems a plea deal is now back on the table. Originally the judge said no chance for that. WTH happened to change that?

http://www.nj.com/jjournal-news/index ... p_charg.html#incart_river

And the speeding continues unenforced on this stretch of JFK. Cops have promised us more enforcement ever since this happened, as have Shea and the Mayor. We've yet to get it. Disgusting.

The wage of 37K isn't bad for a new recruit that could be 20 yrs old with no 'real' formal education necessary - You don't need a degree in Criminal Justice or the like to join the police!

A guy or gal flipping burgers one day can the next, apply for the police!

My only concern is that promotion be NOT based on tenure within the police force - Some cops are hopeless and should never be promoted as they lack aptitude.

Dump the greeting with a mural - The current font looks dated and out of place if we trying to modernize the city ... but the initial idea has merit and is an improvement.

If a snappy mural is done, I'm sure it would be a tourist attraction in a small way and would generate many photos and a landmark for locals
