Re: Towing cars on 6th Street without proper notice
Home away from home
Home away from home


A few weeks ago, when they were doing the curbs at the west end of Columbus, (in fits and starts) near Ferris, they not only did it starting at 7am but closed the road to traffic.

Columbus is wayyyyy busier than 6th street, yet it got done during the day.

This city is absurd in all ways.

Re: Hamilton Park Renovation - Update

Open Letter to Hamilton Park Neighborhood Association:

cc: www.jclist.com (Posting)
Mayor Healy
Councilman Fulop

re: Hamilton Park Closure

To: Jen Steve, and the rest of HPNA:

Hi, my name is Don Mankoff, and I’ve lived in the neighborhood for 5 years (first at 8th and Coles; now at 8th and Erie). I’m writing about the closure and renovation of Hamilton Park.

First, a big thanks to your organization for advocating on behalf of the Park and the community.

Now I’ll cut to the chase: as you know, Hamilton Park is truly the lynchpin of recreation for the community, especially during mid March through mid November. I play tennis there twice a week; my daughter’s in the playground daily; I walk my dog there every morning; etc. And I’m typical. I understand it’s about to be closed for an extended renovation. I’ve got serious concerns. I don’t blame you by the way – I readily admit that like most residents, I haven’t been very involved, and I don’t know who to blame. But I value your group and its mission, so I wanted to share my concerns and ask you to take action:

1) Why close the Park for nearly the whole spring and summer? Nothing can justify closing this Park over the peak season -- there must be another way! If this will take 8 months (as I’ve heard), shouldn’t it start in October? I can’t believe the City would choose April to close this Park, which is the main (only!) recreational outlet for so many residents. Even if the renovation would take 2 years instead of 1 to complete over two winters, it would be a million times better than closing the Park over the summer. Whatever the reasons for starting now – the funding just became available, they can’t work over the winter, etc. – it’s baloney. There must be another way!

2) If this absolutely must be done during the peak season (which I will never accept), then at least close the Park in segments, no?

3) Why no advance notice to the community? -- posted around town, online, in newspapers, etc., announcing on the start date and (most important) finish date. The (non-existent) notice should have discussed alternative park areas -- both existing park areas and temporary facilities the City could make available. Better late than never, by the way.

4) Are we protected if the project takes longer than planned (like every municipal construction project in the history of time!)? There should be severe penalties in the contract, along with contingency plans and notice requirements if there are delays.

Bottom line: could you imagine the non-emergency closure of Central Park, or a major park in Montclair or Maplewood -- for an entire summer no less? Of course not – those governments wouldn’t THINK of being so unresponsive (and even cruel) to the needs of their citizens. And the citizens wouldn’t stand for it. Only Jersey City would do this to its own residents. I’m asking you to mobilize your supporters and the community to get the City to find another way to do this.

I’d be happy to discuss this further, or to help out if I can -- feel free to contact me.

Sincerely,
Don Mankoff (tel # omitted from jclist post)

Re: ANIMAL CONTROL dumps CATs/KiTTENS in Lincoln Park
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


I tried to import the letter from the State Dept. of Health but can't do it. Everyone who wrote to them got this letter. The important paragraphs are:

"Thank you for your recent inquiry into the animal control situation which occurred in Jersey City, where a stray cat picked up by animal control officers was later released in a nearby park by the officers.

In response to reports concerning this situation, the Office of Animal Welfare contacted the Jersey City Department of Health and Human Services, which supervises the city animal control unit. It was discovered that Jersey City has a policy that cats are considered to be free-roaming, and therefore, stray cats are not routinely picked up. Even when a stray cat is picked up (if it has entered a resident's house), it is not always impounded, but may be released.

The Jersey City Assistant Health Officer and Chief Animal Control Officer were immediately notified that this policy is not in conformance with State statutes, which requires all stray cats reported to or observed by an animal control officer to be roaming, or causing a nuisance or public health threat to be picked up and impounded or returned to the owner if it has identification. In response, Mr. Harry Melendez, Director, JCDHHS, contacted our office to express his deep concern over this matter and promise it will not happen again, as well as to request state guidance in reviewing their animal control policies and ensuring that proper procedures are followed in the future.

Considering there was a city policy to release cats as opposed to impounding them, we do not feel the animal control officers in question should have their certifications revoked for this incident."

There you have it. Since the Dept. of Health wrote this letter on April 9, we can assume their investigation as well as conversation with Melendez took place prior to that, which means when Melendez showed up at the Council Caucus on Monday April 6 all indignant at the suggestion that something was amiss in his Dept., and that reforms were required, he probably already knew that something was amiss in his Dept. and that reforms are required.

They're going it on Grove north of 14th street right now. When I left at 10 in the morning there were no signs. Today I come back from work and there are signs saying no parking from 6pm to 6am and not a car in sight. I doubt my neighbors were all home before 6 today. Who is going to see that if they work 9-5? I'm so glad I don't drive, I'd hate to come back to this mess. That's just messed up.

Hoboken wouldn't pull this shit. No wonder all the rich, working, tax paying folk that JC is trying to appeal to would rather live in Hoboken than this shithole.

Not to mention they are just repaving but the signs say it's emergency maintenance, which, now looking at this post, is BS. How about a little planning and advanced warning? They also say that the boundary is the city limits. So I guess that 700 grove wasn't in need of emergency maintenance? Or maybe it's not an emergency and just a stupid town project.

And I'm really glad that it's almost 1 am and they aren't even halfway. It will be nice to try to sleep through the jackhammering.

FU Jersey City. I'm moving to California.

State cuts education budget, Board of Ed elections next week - Get Involved!
Home away from home
Home away from home


Board of Education elections are next Tuesday, 4/21. Find out who the candidates are and where they stand on the issues most important to our youngest student citizens.

In the meantime, here's what some Jersey City parents, students and community members had to say on the subject today, in front of City Hall:

************************************************************************************
PARENTS RALLY TO URGE THE COURT TO REJECT CORZINE’S NEW SCHOOL FUNDING PLAN

They tell City Leaders: we need your support

On Thursday, April 16, from 12 to 1pm, Parents and Communities United for Education (PCUE) held a rally at the steps of the City Hall in Jersey City to oppose Governor Corzine’s school funding plan (School Funding Reform Act—SFRA). Over 70 parents, children, and community members participated in this rally. SFRA reverses decades of efforts under Abbott court decisions to provide educational equity for children in poor urban districts, predominantly made up of Black and Latino communities. The NJ State Supreme Court is holding a hearing on April 28 to decide whether the SFRA is constitutional and provides NJ children a quality education.

Because of the new school funding formula, Jersey City is facing a $24 million cut in the school budget for year 2009-2010. The shortfall in the budget is causing cuts in tutoring programs, after school programs, summer school, teacher professional training, preschool programs, Special Education programs, and classroom supplies. Academic and social service programs are particularly important for cities with high concentrations of poor and low-income families. These programs assist children to perform better academically and to reach their potential. Governor Corzine’s plan will put our children and our neighborhoods at greater risk.

LueElla McFadden, President of PCUE and a great grandmother of a child in school # 38, said “No matter how the governor is trying to disguise his school funding plan, the fact remains that our children will carry the brunt of his thoughtlessness. With SFRA our children will pay a heavy cost. We will not stand by and let them take away our children’s future.”

Debra Jordan, PCUE Treasurer and a grandmother of a few children in public schools said, “We are rallying here to voice our concerns for our children’s future. The state says it wants our children to excel. However, they are taking away the funding needed to maintain the programs and services our children need in order to succeed. This is duplicity. The state has to put the money where its mouth is.”

“We are also here to tell our Mayor and Council President that we need them to stand together with us. We are going to Trenton for the court hearing on April 28, and we are asking them to accompany us,” Ms. Jordan added.

PCUE is a grassroots organization of parents, grandparents, and concerned members of the community. A chapter of the Statewide Education Organizing Committee of NJ (SEOC). PCUE is committed to organizing parents in all Jersey City communities to improve education for our children. Over the last year, since its founding, PCUE’s efforts have led to healthier schools for JC children. Since Trenton unveiled its school funding plan, PCUE has joined with advocacy and parent organizations across New Jersey to oppose Governor Corzine’s assaults on the state’s poorest school districts.

Just got back from this. It was quite interesting, but the thing that left an impression on me the most was the outrageously rude behavior of the Manzo/Carroll team.

They talked, "coughed" and wildly clapped out of turn repeatedly.

If you can't keep your own followers in line, how in the hell do plan on running this city?

Seriously, i went in w/ no ideas made up, and i really liked what Carroll had to say. Seems like a decent guy, but if you surround yourself w/ rude bullies, it says something about you to me.

It reaked of an old school jersey city mentality, of "if you don't like it leave", not so much of the change i'm looking for. more of the same old BS we deal with today.

Too bad, i have heard good things about him, and no, i'm not writing him off, but it has definitely given me pause.

On Friday, May 1st, 6:30 to 9 PM; Liberty Science Center, in joint venture with Liberty Humane Society, is holding "Single, Mingle & Bark" (What, no purrs? )

It will be held within the Liberty Science Center. Since attendees are invited to bring their dogs or borrow one from LHS, attire is casual. (I suppose other pets are also welcome. However, let's face it - the average cat, bird, small and furry or reptile doesn't travel as well as the average dog - especially in noisy, crowded venues - although one can make a case for some ferrets and parrots.)

There will be a wine tasting and light fare, a cash bar for the thirsty, music, a silent raffle and a 50/50

Tickets are $25 if purchased by April 25th - $30 at the door.

The rain date is June 4th.

If you need a bauble for the evening, come visit the Liberty Humane Society Sidewalk Sale at the shelter - 235 Jersey City Blvd. - right across the street from the Science Center - this Saturday, April 18th, 10 am to 3 pm.

No matter how thin it is, we need it. It is the only way we can get up to date news on Hudson County. (In addition, the Saturday Letters Column, taken from messages left on the phone, is always interesting and sometimes unintentionally hilarious reading.) NJ.com's Hudson link is the Jersey Journal.

I am sorry to hear about the the departures of the five editors, particularly Earl Morgan and Rebecca Markley.

The Star-Ledger and the Jersey Journal are owned by the same company and the Ledger, while more robust thatn the Journal, has had its own troubles with sinking advertising revenue.

Re: ANIMAL CONTROL dumps CATs/KiTTENS in Lincoln Park
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


I have received permission to post this from Diana Jeffrey - Daisy's Lawyer and will e-mail the State Dept. of Health letter she mentions to anyone upon request.

I am sure you will all feel the same rage I did upon reading this letter. This is a fine waste of your tax-paying dollars, as well as mine when I lived in Jersey City. Who knows how many animals (I would not be surprised to learn other kinds of pets were dumped) have met the same fate?

This could happen to any of OUR pets if they get out. (Hey, I live close enough to the border for my cats to wind up in Lincoln Park.)

Our council members were supposed to set up a committee to oversee AC TWO YEARS AGO. With the exception of Steve Fulop, even in an election year, these people are too smug to take animal lovers seriously - or to care about the public and safety issues such indiscriminate dumping creates.

Read and take action. It is an election year, so we may be taken seriuosly this time.

Of course, Jersey City is not the only city in Hudson County with Animal Control Officer problems, (although it is the only one to have the dubious distinction of appearing on "Shame on You".) Hector's next. There has to be a way to get him, too.

Read on:

THE CITY LIED TO YOU WHEN IT SAID THAT THE DUMPING OF DAISY IN LINCOLN PARK WAS AN "ISOLATED INCIDENT."

In a letter dated April 9 (Lindad will email the letter, which was attached to the original email, to anyone upon request), the State Department of Health and Senior Services states that its own ivestigation "discovered that Jersey City has a policy" of routinely failing to pick up stray cats. What's more, the DHSS found that when stray cats are picked up by Jersey City ACOs, they are not always impounded at the animal shelter (as required by law) but released into public places.

The DHSS says that Jersey City officials admitted this was its animal control policy -- while at the same time, Jersey City officials were publicly telling YOU that the dumping of Daisy was an "isolated incident."

Moreover, City officials put Joe Frank in charge of investigating himself -- when they KNEW this policy was his own creation! Then, they suspended the officers who dumped Daisy for 5 days without pay -- when they KNEW the officers were just following Frank's illegal policy. Council members told people with great satisfaction that the matter had been "dealt with" and no further action was needed.

No more action needed. Oh, really?

There's a phrase for this -- it's called a COVER UP.

It's pretty clear to me that greater oversight of the Division of Animal Control is desperately needed. If this were any other municipality, they would toss Joe Frank out of that job IMMEDIATELY. We all know the history with this guy:


--In 2001 the SCI report revealed that Frank took a loan from SPCA president Ed Pulver, then "repaid" the loan by working there under an assumed name. All the while, Frank looked the other way as animals were abused and mistreated.

--In 2004, Frank seized 3 Shih Tzus from the apartment of a women who had been arrested. He took two to the shelter but took the third home -- after having it groomed and deflea'd at the City's expense, apparently to give to his wife as a gift. He failed to tell shelter personnel there was a third dog. When this was discovered, Corporation Counsel forced him to return the third dog to the shelter, but no disciplinary action was taken against him. The woman reclaimed all three dogs later.

--In 2005, Frank told his officers to enter a tenant's locked apartment and remove her dog, as a favor to the landlord (a friend of his wife) who had tried unsuccessfully to remove the dog through legal channels. Two officers (Ross and Perez) refused on the grounds that this would be theft. The third (Machado) entered the apartment, snared the dog on a pole and cut its mouth, leaving a trail of blood up the stairs. He falsely signed it in at the shelter as a "stray." He failed to leave the tenant a note as required by law. Later, Machado had a pang of guilt and told a mutual friend where she could find her dog. But not until he issued her three bogus summons to cover up his misconduct. Those summons were all later dismissed by the prosecutor. A public outcry ensued to oust Joe Frank. After months of promising he would be gone, City officials let this peter out. No disciplinary action was ever taken. The Appellate Division ordered the DHSS to revoke Frank's certification for his role in this illegal act, but so far, nothing has been done.

--Also in 2005, Joe Frank filed bogus animal cruelty charges against the former shelter manager of LHS, Niki Dawson after threatening and harassing her for years. The charges were dismissed by the prosecutor. No disciplinary action was ever taken against Frank.


--In 2006, the City Council investigated Animal Control. Evidence was provided by animal advocates demonstrating Frank's long record of violating the procedural requirements of the Dangerous Dog law and animal cruelty laws. In case after case, Frank is seen to be seizing dogs without probable cause, without issuing the required notice to the owner of his/her rights, and without notifying the court timely of the need for a hearing. Most people he targets are low income and people of color. Despite the overwhelming evidence of habitual violations of dog owner's rights, no disciplinary action is ever taken, and no greater supervision or oversight is imposed upon him.


If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, I urge you to contact your counsel representative, as well as Council President Vega, and demand the pass the Animal Control Commission/Ombudsman ordinance. You can find contact info at www.cityofjerseycity.com.

The fact that Mr. Frank still has this job is honestly, beyond my comprehension. He should be suspended until a complete audit of AC's records can be conducted by the Commission to determine how many other people's pet cats ended up in Lincoln Park or God knows where else.

Best Regards,


Diana Jeffrey

Taxes on a 2 bed condo in one of the newer buildings aren't far away from that.

does anyone know where the Farmer's Market will be moved to now that HP will be closed for the summer?


It will be on the outside of the park, exact location still being worked out but the City has signed off on it being held outside. The Farmers Mkt starts (tentative date) Wed, 6/3, from 4pm to 8pm and will run through October. The HPNA anticipates having the same fantastic vendors as last year.

Also, I noticed a couple people on here asking me for information on the renovation. I'm in the process of handing the community aspect of the project over to others in the HPNA as my family has decided to move out of JC. Stevehpna is doing a great job keeping everyone in the loop here on JClist. You can also subscribe to the HPNA mailing list (look for HPNA-JC-Public through yahoogroups) or check the blog at http://hpnajc.blogspot.com as that will be regularly updated.
