Jersey City cops win $2.2M in fight against ex-Mayor Healy

 A federal jury last week awarded $2.2 million to nine former Jersey City police officers after the panel found that a now-retired police sergeant and eight others were not promoted because of political retaliation.

The May 2 verdict ended a 12-year court battle that saw numerous twists and turns and will end up costing the city a bundle, not just for the jury awards but for legal bills that have accumulated for more than a decade.

Reval protest mounting downtown
Some residents considering a class action lawsuit

by Al Sullivan
Reporter staff writer
May 06, 2018 |

With the deadline approaching to appeal the property assessments given during the recent Jersey City revaluation, some downtown residents hope to take the issue to court in a class action lawsuit.

Although slow to start, the protest has picked up momentum over the last few weeks as downtown residents hardest hit with massive increases scramble to challenge the resulting spikes in their tax bills.

Ward E Councilman James Solomon said the issuing of property cards to residents, which signals the official end of the revaluation process, was due to start on May 1. This sets into motion the formal appeal process. Residents will have 45 days from when the cards are mailed to file an appeal with the Hudson County Tax Board.

“Van Vorst, Paulus Hook, and the Village neighborhoods were the hardest hit,” Solomon said. “Some of these residents have been there for 30, 40 even 50 years. It’s hard for them to have to sell and move out of a place they love.”

Solomon said some of these residents will be hit hard when the August tax bills come out.

Jersey City, Polish officials trade barbs over massacre statue

The proposed removal of a memorial to the victims of a 1940 Polish massacre is officially an international incident, with Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop and Polish Senator Stanislaw Karczewski trading barbs about plans to find a new home for the statue.

Karczewski, speaker of Poland's senate, said Wednesday on Polish Radio that the push to move the Katyn memorial is "scandalous," while Fulop fired back with an accusation that Karczewski is a "known anti-Semite."

Jersey City Hit With $2M Damages For Denying Police Promos

Law360 (May 3, 2018, 10:36 PM EDT) -- A New Jersey federal jury has slammed Jersey City with roughly $2.1 million in damages in more than a decade’s worth of litigation over claims the city did not promote police sergeants to the rank of lieutenant as part of a retaliatory scheme against one of the officers.

At the end of a nearly three-week trial, jurors on Wednesday sided with nine current or former sergeants in their lawsuits alleging that municipal officials halted such promotions between 2004 and 2006 in part because plaintiff Valerie Montone...

New Jersey hospital bills patient $5,751 for ice pack and bandage

New Jersey hospital bills patient $5,751 for ice pack and bandage

Written by Ayla Ellison (Twitter | Google+)  | May 03, 2018

Jessica Pell went to the emergency room at Hoboken (N.J.) University Medical Center in October 2016 after she fainted and hit her head on a table, cutting her ear. She received an ice pack and a bandage in the ER, for which the hospital billed her $5,751, according to Vox.

Ms. Pell didn't receive a diagnosis in the ER, and she left the hospital when she learned the plastic surgeon available to see her was not in her insurance network.

"I decided to decline treatment because I can't really afford any surprise bills right now," she told Vox. "The bill I'd probably incur would not be worth saving my ear, which was sad but a choice I had to make."

Ms. Pell was shocked when she received a bill for $5,751 from the hospital.

"It's for the ice pack and the bandage," Ms. Pell told Vox. "That is the only tangible thing they could bill me for."

Ms. Pell's insurance plan paid $862 toward the bill, which left her with a balance of $4,989.

Hoboken University Medical Center, part of Jersey City, N.J.-based CarePoint Health, declined to comment to Vox about the bill but said it was reaching out to Ms. Pell "to work on a settlement/resolution to her satisfaction." Ms. Pell told Vox the hospital reversed the entire balance after Vox began asking questions about the hospital's fees, according to the report.

Ms. Pell's bill is one of many submitted to Vox's ER database project.

I-Team: Fired Jersey City Cop Spills on Off-Duty Fraud, Bribery Scheme

"This went on unchecked for years," the 14-year Jersey City police veteran says. "This was the culture. If you weren't part of it, you weren't trusted."

A convicted Jersey City cop is dishing dirt about a decades-old off-duty fraud and bribery scheme that has ensared nearly a dozen officers in a wide-ranging federal probe.

The officer, a 14-year veteran, told the I-Team in an exclusive interview that he was one of eight "pick" coordinators who controlled off-duty jobs, including traffic control, for private contractors. Off-duty work is only permitted when officers aren’t on patrol and with authorization by the city.

"The contractors would call me, I assigned the jobs out. I kept the best ones for myself," he said.

"I used to work two or three jobs at a time. If there was a job in front of me, I’d be working my patrol shift, and that job simultaneuously," he added.

The fired officer, who faces a possible prison sentence, said he was making anywhere from $50,000 to $100,000 a year illegally and that bosses looked the other way.

"This went on unchecked for years," he said.

So far, 11 officers have pleaded guilty in the federal investigation that focused on off-duty and no-show jobs. The highest ranking officer to be indicted is former police chief Phil Zacche, who admitted that he bilked the Housing Authority out of tens of thousands of dollars for off-duty security jobs he never worked. He’ll be sentenced next month.

Several sources told the I-Team other officers are being criminally investigated. 

Jersey City's director of public safety, James Shea, said," It was a scheme that went on for a long time. We’ve already closed down over 50 percent of the work that was being done. We ended it completely in the housing developments. We ended the escorts of trucking. We started where we saw the most potential for corruption. License premises, individual homeowners, the trucks that needed escorts." 

He added that the off-duty housing authority program ended months ago and the overall off-duty program will be eliminated by the end of the year.

"It was a corrupting influence on our entire department because there was so much money available at these side jobs," he said.

Shea added it is a strong possibility there will be more arrests by federal authorities.

The president of the Jersey City Police Officers Benevelont Association, Carmine Disbow, said in a statement to News 4's I-Team: "A program that puts approximately 150 extra police officers on the streets on a daily basis, at no cost to taxpayers, is a critical component of keeping our residents safe; yet Mayor Fulop and Public Safety Director Shea have refused to engage in any meaningful conversation about how to reform and overhaul it."

He added, "To paint the entire department as corrupt is unfair, unwarranted and simply wrong. If an apple has a few rotten apples you do not chop down the whole tree."

The convicted officer said he believes there are 20 to 30 more officers and supervisors still on the police force who were part of the corruption scheme.

Plan to switch health care providers angers Jersey City teachers

Jersey City teachers are irate after the school district revealed it is seeking to change health care providers less than two weeks after teachers agreed on their current provider as part of a new contract.

Teachers union officials lashed out at board members Tuesday night about the proposed change, which Board of Education President Sudhan Thomas said could save the district about $12 million next school year. Teachers did not know about the planned switch until late yesterday afternoon, union officials said.

Watch New Jersey’s soon-to-be-tallest tower rise in under a minute

Watch the condo building rise to its 45th floor; eventually it will have 79 floors

By

As New Jersey’s soon-to-be-tallest tower continues its ascent along the Jersey City waterfront, developer China Overseas America has released a new time-lapse video that shows the building rising to its 45th floor in under a minute.

Eventually this condo building will have 79 floors and stand 889 feet tall. Since the publication of the video earlier this month, the building has now reached the 49th floor, a representative for the developer told Curbed.

99 Hudson launched sales on its 781 apartments in October last year with apartments asking from $770,000. The apartments here come in studios through three-bedrooms, and the Marketing Directors are handling sales for the condo.

JERSEY CITY – The death of a popular baseball coach may have been the result of an argument about whether residents should feed the birds in Pershing Field, according to court testimony.

Charles Lowy, 68, is charged with murder for allegedly stabbing Anthony Bello, 77, twice in the chest on April 15. Officials say one of the stab wounds pierced the retired teacher's lung, causing his death.

Rent former Giant Justin Pugh's stunning N.J. penthouse. Only $11K a month

Before signing a five-year, $45 million deal with the Arizona Cardinals this off-season, former New York Giants offensive lineman Justin Pugh rented one of Jersey City's most extravagant homes.

The 5,232-square-foot penthouse home -- equipped with a rooftop pool, unobstructed views of Manhattan and a movie theater -- is back on the rental market for just under $11,000 a month, according to its Trulia listing.

Located on Ogden Avenue in the Heights neighborhood, the home has a private four-car garage and elevator that ushers you to a massive open floor plan with a rustic design, highlighted by exposed brick and steel beams. The main level has a wet bar and a gourmet kitchen that features a 15-foot-long island and high-end appliances.

In total, the home has five bedrooms and five bathrooms.

Accusations of fake pay records rock Jersey City's rec department

Jersey City's recreation department is reeling from accusations that a mid-level official there adjusted payroll records so the official's friends and family could get paid for work they did not perform, sources have told The Jersey Journal.

The official was moved to a different recreation department office after an internal review of pay records raised questions about pay given to at least 11 people, the sources said.

City spokeswoman Hannah Peterson dismissed the accusations as "gossip" from a disgruntled employee.

Jersey City won’t give Charles Kushner subsidies, but his brother got them

Murray Kushner's firm got $40M in tax breaks to redevelop Journal Square

The mayor of Jersey City, Steven Fulop, has made it clear he doesn’t want to give Kushner Companies a dime of subsidy to build their luxury residential towers at 1 Journal Square. But he didn’t feel that way about giving money to Charles Kushner’s rival brother, Murray.

Kushner Real Estate Group, the firm led by Charles’ estranged brother Murray, received $40 million for its own redevelopment proposals at Journal Square, Bloomberg reported. That project, called Journal Squared, opened last year.

Kushner Companies expected to receive the same treatment, but that changed last year, as protestors lined up to express their outrage that the city would move to subsidize the family of the President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner.

Newark releases Amazon HQ2 proposal highlighting the city's diversity, tech infrastructure

The New Jersey city released the document after a February lawsuit requested access to the proposal. Amazon is expected to make a decision this year.

by - April 26, 2018 1:59 PM

On Wednesday, the city released its proposal to host the e-commerce giant's second headquarters after resident Steven Wronko sued for access to it in February. The proposal, titled "Yes, Newark," is more than 200 pages long and highlights the city's diverse population, tech infrastructure and transportation systems. It also offers suggested locations for the headquarters and touts more than 50 pages of letters of recommendations. 

The city redacted the financial incentives it is offering the Seattle e-tailer. (Here are parts onetwo and three of Newark's bid.) 

Amazon has been on the hunt for a city to host its second headquarters since September and plans to make a selection later this year. In January, the company unveiled 20 finalists after vetting proposals from 238 communities in the US, Canada and Mexico. The company has said HQ2 will match its Seattle headquarters in size and importance, and the company expects to spend more than $5 billion on the project.

Start dealing with school funding, pension shortfall

Posted: Apr. 26, 2018 12:01 am

The Newton Board of Education earlier this year took the lead in filing a petition demanding school funding distribution as set forth by the state's own School Funding Reform Act.

For years the Newton School District indeed has been woefully underfunded according to the SFRA formula. Newton received just 60 percent of its state aid in the current fiscal year while the town's taxpayers paid 48 percent more than what New Jersey deems its local fair share.

They are not alone. And the tab to address the inequity is hefty.

To fully fund every district according to the decade-old SFRA, the state would need to pump in another $1.5 billion.

That net figure, calculated by the nonpartisan Office of Legislative Services and released this week by the Senate majority office, takes into account a $2.2 billion shortfall owed to 70 percent of the state's districts, reduced by $660 million in aid that exceeds the state formula in other districts.

Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy has promised to fully fund the formula starting with a proposed $284 million in the next fiscal year, though where that additional money will come from is not clear.

State Sen. Steve Oroho, R-24th Dist., who calls the current formula "absolutely flawed" and has been on a committee to examine the state's school funding, said, "Promises are easy to make, payments are hard."

Back to that $660 million that is "overfunding" school districts.

According to a chart compiled by NJ Spotlight, a news and politics and public policy analysis website, a half-dozen school districts are each receiving at least $20 million more than they should.

The granddaddy of them is Jersey City, which, according to the figures, receives $174 million more state aid than the law, if fairly applied, would allow.

Further irritating the issue, the Jersey City Board of Education recently approved a teacher contract that amounts to an 8.25 percent average raise over two years at a time when the district is facing a $71 million budget deficit and more than 300 layoffs, as reported by news website Insider NJ.

The teacher contract includes a retroactive 3.5 percent pay raise for the current school year, a 2.75 percent hike for next school year, along with stipends to cover health insurance costs -- 1.75 percent of salary for individuals, 2 percent for couples and 2.25 percent for families, according to The Jersey Journal.

That news report cited Senate President Steve Sweeney, D-3rd Dist., as calling the Jersey City Board of Education's action irresponsible, and rightly echoing comments by the only board member who voted against the contract, who said the contract was "not grounded in fiscal reality."

Most in the private sector would likely agree with that assessment.

Fiscal reality is also needed on the state level. Besides finding the $1.5 billion that would be needed to fully fund the SFRA formula -- which in itself is in need of a total do-over -- the state has a much bigger problem as it faces a worst-in-the-country pension funding deficit, by one recent tally at $124 billion.

Oroho acknowledges the challenge and said to get the state on an even keel will take time and discipline.

Agreed. But time is running out, and the state has a very poor track record of fiscal discipline.

Yes, it took us a while to get into this hole, and it's going to take us a while to get out of it.

But it's time to get started.

Hoboken Mayor Doing It His Way: Orders 'Gender Neutral' Bathrooms

The city of Hoboken, N.J. — just over the bridge from Manhattan's skyline — now joins a growing list of American cities passing bills making public bathrooms "gender neutral."

Signs on all city-owned, single-occupancy restrooms, in the town made famous by its native son Frank Sinatra, will be replaced to reflect the change by May 31, just in time for LGBT Pride Month, Hoboken Mayor Ravinder S. Bhalla says.

And, Bhalla plans to take it a step further asking the city council to vote for an ordinance that will make all bathrooms, including those in private establishments, accessible to all gender identities.

Kushners' Loan for Troubled N.J. Site Backed by Web Lender

April 24, 2018, 4:23 PM EDTUpdated on April 24, 2018, 9:44 PM EDT

The company owned by the family of presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner says Jersey City, New Jersey, a Democratic stronghold, is blocking its plan to build two towers because of politics and hinted a lawsuit is possible. Behind the fight there’s another struggle: paying for the project.

The Kushners obtained temporary funds from a web-based lender that specializes in risky loans shunned by other financial firms, Bloomberg has learned. Earlier plans for the project at 1 Journal Square collapsed when WeWork, the workspace startup, left. Much of the development’s financing had been tied to its participation.

Jersey City teachers ratify contract with raise

JERSEY CITY -- Teachers with the Jersey City Public Schools have approved a contract that comes with a pay raise and stipend for those who pay into their health benefits. 

Members of the board of education finalized the agreement during Thursday night's meeting at Snyder High School, just under two hours after 81 percent of teachers voted in favor of the agreement, according to the teachers' union.

The new contract was initially agreed upon last month following a one-day strike, with teachers demanding relief from Chapter 78 – New Jersey's 2011 law that revamped how public employees pay for their health benefits – saying they were bringing home less money despite salary increases.

Exchange Physical Therapy Group & Jaclyn Fulop Team Launch City’s First Mobile Low-Cost Spay & Neuter Program for Local Animal Shelter, Liberty Humane Society

Local small business Exchange Physical Therapy Group and Jaclyn Fulop teamed up with Liberty Humane Society and raised over $120,000 for the non-profit animal shelter to launch Jersey City’s first low-cost spay and neuter program.

Exchange Physical Therapy Group in Jersey City and Weehawken, hosted a fundraiser at local distillery Corgi Spirits this week, and through ticket sales and corporate donations, more than quadrupled its initial goal of $25,000 and is hoping to not only fund the first year, but also create an ongoing donor base for subsequent years.

“When we learned about this situation and that a solution was within reach, we immediately knew we had to help,” said Jaclyn Fulop, co-owner of Exchange Physical Therapy Group. “We have seen the benefits an animal can have, through our therapy dog Chloe, and want to make sure all of Jersey City’s dogs and cats have an opportunity at a good life. That’s what this program will provide.”

The decision, which was announced last week, will remove eight of the least popular stations, including those at three light rail stops, a state college, and a community center. While officials have not announced where exactly the stations will be moved, they are expected to be brought to areas with higher ridership. A majority of the system is located Downtown.

Netflix Cancels Crime Drama Seven Seconds

By

Seven Seconds will not be getting a second season on Netflix. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the streaming giant decided to pass on telling another story in what would have been an anthological crime drama. Regina King starred in the 10-episode series, which centered around the death of an African-American teenager who was killed by a Jersey City police officer in a hit-and-run. The plot follows the cops who attempted to cover up their crime, the investigators on their tail, and the family left devastated by the loss of their son. The first season told a complete story, so if the show had a second it would have followed a completely different story with some characters and Jersey City remaining as the constant. At least fans got to see King’s character see her story through to the end.

Eli Manning Sells Hoboken Condo, May Be City's Priciest: Report

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning sold his waterfront home in Hoboken for $3.55 million, a report says.

By Eric Kiefer, Patch Staff | Apr 17, 2018 5:32 pm ET

HOBOKEN, NJ — New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning recently sold his waterfront home in Hoboken for $3.55 million, a sale that may be the highest that any buyer has paid for a condo in the city's history, reports say.

The sale price of $3.55 million beats out the previous highest, a $3.3 million home at 216 Bloomfield Street, a Douglas Elliman spokesman told the NY Post.

According to a listing on Realtor.com, the home – located at 1500 Hudson Street in the Hudson Tea Building – was "off market" as of Tuesday.

Teachers to vote on contract with 6 percent raise

Jersey City teachers will receive a 6 percent raise over the next two years if they ratify a contract that has already been agreed upon by the union and school district.

Teachers in the 29,000-student district walked off the job last month saying they need relief from Chapter 78, New Jersey's 2011 law that revamped how public employees pay for their health benefits, has decreased their take-home pay despite salary increases.

A copy of the contract obtained by The Jersey Journal indicates teachers would receive a retroactive 3.5 percent raise dated back to September, when the last contract expired. They would receive another 2.75 percent raise at the beginning of next school year.
