Jersey City biz groups criticize plan for payroll tax

 A plan to implement a payroll tax in Jersey City has alarmed business owners and industry groups who say it would limit Jersey City's competitiveness and aggravate an already inhospitable tax environment.

The plan, which is moving swiftly through the state Legislature, would allow the city to impose a 1 percent tax on a business' payroll, with potential exceptions for the wages of city residents. Proposed as a way to fund Jersey City's public-school district, it was approved on a party-line vote by a state Senate committee on Monday.

Canvs App spotlights Jersey City's public art | Logged On

By Troy Dreier/For the Jersey Journal

Thanks to a program from the mayor's office, gorgeous artist-created murals are popping up in Jersey City faster than a person can keep track of. Luckily, there's an app to help. Available for iOS, free app Canvs (www.canvsart.com) helps users discover and track impressive street art from coast to coast—but it got its start here in Jersey.

The app began as a passion project for Ralph André, an advertising creative director. While he loved the murals in his hometown of Jersey City, he found he often didn't know who created them or the story behind them. That curiosity led him to flesh out an app and connect with an iOS developer friend. Canvs launched in the fall of 2016. While the app originally focused on Jersey City, it expanded to other cities last spring.

485 Marin brings rentals from $2,300/month to Jersey City’s Hamilton Park

https://ny.curbed.com/2018/6/5/1742971 ... apartments-for-rent"}"> 2 comments

The project shares a developer and architect with Jersey City’s massive Journal Squared

By

The team behind Jersey City’s massive Journal Squared project launched their next rental west of the Hudson River today. The development, called 485 Marin, brings 397 rentals to Jersey City’s Hamilton Park, a neighborhood known more for its tree-lined streets and Victorian architecture than swanky rental buildings.

Architect Hollwich Kushner (HWKN) designed an 18-story brick-clad building for the site at the corner of Marin Boulevard and 8th Street and opposite the Newport Centre shopping mall. The building’s distinctive feature, its inward-facing stepped design, is intended to “create a visual corridor for the existing residents of the area,” according to a press release by developer KRE Group.

Voters wanted a revolution. How'd they get stuck with corrupt Bob Menendez? | Will Bunch

Updated: June 7, 2018 — 2:04 PM EDT

You say you want a revolution? Then you definitely want to see more candidates like Michael Starr Hopkins, a 31-year-old public defender and occasional TV political pundit who — for a brief month or two in late 2017 — toyed with throwing a large wrench into the creaky, oil-leaking machine that is New Jersey’s Democratic Party.

Hopkins’ scheme would have made him not just the youngest U.S. senator since a (former) whippersnapper named Joe Biden back in 1973 but an ardent advocate for progressive causes such as ending the college-debt crisis, supporting a Medicare-for-all health-care system, and legalizing pot.

And here’s the beauty part: A Hopkins campaign — with just a slight nudge from the far-too-influential powers-that-be in the Garden State — would have given New Jersey’s rank-and-file Democrats hope of wiping the slate clean from the embarrassing tenure of their incumbent Sen. Robert Menendez, whose greatest achievement has been showing that taking freebies like jet travel and swank vacations from a millionaire donor seeking political favors is no longer a felony in America’s comatose 21st-century democracy.

Late last fall, Hopkins — who lives in Jersey City — raised about $50,000 from small donors for an insurgent challenge to Menendez. Then he went to major party backers and power players like then-Gov.-elect Phil Murphy and Menendez’s Senate colleague Cory Booker, a 2020 presidential hopeful, to sell them on the power of a fresh face. There would be no sale. Hopkins couldn’t get past the front door.

“They were all very clear that they were backing Menendez — and that was decided even before the Justice Department decided not to prosecute him” a second time after a November hung jury, Hopkins told me this week. He said that many bigger Democratic donors told him they feared “retribution” if they bucked the establishment and gave Hopkins any money. The would-be insurgent abandoned his Senate campaign before it ever got off the ground.

‘My name is Amy, not Tom DeGise’

Daughter of county executive runs for HCDO chair

by Al Sullivan
Reporter staff writer
May 27, 2018

Seated in a back booth at the VIP Diner, a well-known Jersey City political hangout for nearly a half century, Amy DeGise didn’t look remotely out of place.

The daughter of County Executive Tom DeGise is running to become chair of the Hudson County Democratic Organization (HCDO) the longtime county political organization, challenging state Sen. and Union City Mayor Brian Stack.

So it was fitting that she sat down to talk to The Reporter in a place where members of the old guard of Jersey City have long met. But DeGise has big plans to revamp and modernize the HCDO if she is elected on June 12 by a vote by committee people throughout Hudson County.

Council members uneasy about lifting topless ban on women

JERSEY CITY — An attempt to rewrite the city's 1980s-era obscenity law received a somewhat chilly reception by members of the City Council at its Monday caucus, with council members expressing specific concern over the plan to lift the ban on women appearing topless in public.

The measure, which deals specifically with sex toys, female breasts and body parts in intimate areas, led to an unusually uncomfortable and occasionally giggly conversation among council members. Ward D Councilman Michael Yun was unwilling to utter the word "breasts," referencing them as "those things" instead.

In Jersey City, It’s Kushner vs. Kushner in a Race to Develop

By Charles V. Bagli - May 21, 2018

JERSEY CITY — The decade-long blood feud between the Kushner brothers, Charles and Murray, has already put one brother in jail.

Now, the men, who haven’t spoken in 15 years, are rivals in the development of Journal Square in Jersey City, the site of one failed project after another for the past three decades.

Their ability to get along — or not — could affect this important corner of a rapidly changing city of 264,000 people.

Journal Square is less a neighborhood than a maze of streets occupied by a bus depot and a PATH station, dowdy retail, a community college, low-income housing and a restored landmark theater converted into a Jehovah’s Witnesses Assembly Hall.

Fulop opposes bill introduced by Hudson legislators that would halt property revals

Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop is “not a supporter” of a new bill introduced by three Hudson County legislators that would temporarily halt property revaluations so that residents have time to adjust to the “fiscal shock.”

By John Heinis/Hudson County View

Bill S-2566, introduced by state Senators Brian Stack (D-33), also the Union City Mayor, and Sandra Cunningham (D-31), would potentially take effect immediately and would allow municipalities to postpone applying reval results until January 2019 – as long as those results were not applied to tax bills before April of this year.

Meanwhile, Assemblyman Raj Mukherji (D-33), has introduced the legislation in the state’s lower house.

“This bill would delay the implementation of certain property tax revaluations to provide municipal governing bodies, the Division of Taxation, and the Legislature additional time to limit fiscal shock associated with implementing revaluations,” the bill description says.

An $81 million plan to construct a second municipal office building and a parking garage near the City Hall annex on Martin Luther King Drive won final approval from the City Council Wednesday night.

The council voted 7-2 to adopt the plan, which administration officials and their council allies say will add another boost to an area of the city that needs an economic jolt. Council members Rich Boggiano and Michael Yun voted no, saying they believe the deal is a poor one for taxpayers.

Federal lawsuit targets plan to move Polish massacre statue

JERSEY CITY – Four people filed a lawsuit in Newark federal court on Tuesday morning aimed at stopping a plan to remove the Exchange Place monument commemorating the victims of a 1940 Polish massacre.

The lawsuit alleges Jersey City and Mayor Steve Fulop do not have authority to remove the 34-foot Katyn Memorial because the City Council has not approved any relocation. The plaintiffs – Bart Bagniewski, Boguslava Wang, Slawek Platta, and sculptor Andrzej Pityank – are seeking a temporary restraining order stopping the city from moving the monument.

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.

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."

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.

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.

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.
