Re: ‘Massive’ $120M budget shortfall is subject of special Jersey City BOE meeting

I understand that but I have friends downtown who are hit with $20,000 to $40,000 in taxes. We pay approximately 25% to the school system so my friends could pay an extra $5,000 to $10,000 at the low end or $10,000 to $20,000 at the high end.

I know of some JC residents who also passed the test, so if a JC resident is turned down over Bruce's son, that will be a reflection on this city, especially those residents who passed are from Ward F.

Get your fact correct, I am pushing parking within the city, not a specific type of housing. Luckily, many at the meeting want parking too.

Jersey City Together, a non-profit organization that describes itself as a multi-faith coalition, is seeking to organize “Jersey City residents (& potential voters)” to push their vague education agenda – which is primarily focused on massive property tax increases at this time.

Tax abated and rent control properties will be excluded from any tax increases for the school system according to municipal code. It will be the small homeowner, as usual facing these increases. Just last week the city council passed a resolution to give future tax abatement 24% to the schools for Bayfront. However, we will have a higher rate than 24%. We are in the mess because past and present administrators are always protecting development.

When the Jersey Journal published the addresses and houses of the city council for their reval story, many or the majority had personal parking. So they are making up laws that affect the majority that must park on the street. Something is wrong with that picture.

Amazing how Fulop stop the spending of funds for the FOL and the friends are blamed. It is equivalent to blaming rape victims for the crime committed against them.

Resolution 19-191, the city or I should say Mayor Fulop rejecting a contract to fix the standpipe for the Loews Theatre. The projected cost is more than the county funds allocated for this project, the reason given for the rejection, but as Councilman Boggiano said, "Use the $2 million given to the Loews from Kushner 4 years ago." No comment about that $2 million.

I wish you the best of luck, I also want to pass on the information, that at times my condo building did write up some of these as losses, granted, it is a larger building. So, it is my suggestion of trying to negotiate with the condo board. Maybe offer to pay a quarter or a third over a five year. Boards are happy to get any money at all.

I was on the board of my condo for 4 years and have seen this. My board negotiated with the mortgage company who was responsible for the mortgage to pay these fees. The problem is - there is no law requiring but sometimes you can negotiate. My board rented out the condo until it was sold as a way to recover some of the money on a temporary 6 month lease.

Re: JC historic commission to vote Monday on demolition of St. Peter’s school buildings
#74

A little history on that property, first it was given to the Catholics who worked in Henderson pottery factory around the early 1800s. They would cross the river to go to St. Peter's Church in Manhattan. This was done by rowing. Rowing back and forth, the men became tired and they missed Monday's work. The reason for the free land. But they did not receive the best land, it was marsh land. During the construction of the first church, it fell down. The second church, something similar to St. Francis in NYC, with an upper and lower church. Eventually, the city condemned the church and it was torn down. The final church was built in 1960 and remained until it was sold to St. Peter's Prep. The Church and Grammar school are on marsh land. There are times during heavy rain that water would spring up from the ground. The basement of the grammar school had a wavy floor from buckling. It is only a matter of time that building (grammar school) face the same fate as the first two churches. I am surprised there are no pictures shown of the floor of the grammar school. That was my parish and my children attended the grammar school.

Re: Fulop and the ‘Fight for Fifteen’

The original employees at fast food restaurants were high school teenagers/college students and retired seniors. It was never meant to be employment for raising a family. Immigrants took those jobs and it became the staple for their income. I remember going to a fast food restaurant and gave the cashier $4.01 so I would get back six dollars from a ten. The cashier was clueless to what I was doing and another cashier had to help her. It didn't help her English was limited.

Right now those fast food restaurants are now replacing their employees with self-serving stations. Murphy worries about private business but ignores the pension payment or the fact the state pension retirees had their payment frozen in 2011.

I have been to meetings where parents complain there is no soap or toilet issue in the restrooms and teachers complain about the lack of paper and books. That is wrong considering contracts are going to vendors for questionable services. I don't like the personal attacks but neither do I think she is doing good job.

Two weeks ago some brain-trust engineers stepped forward with
a plan to prevent the 24 hour year long shutdown of the L train.
Only after a year of chaos particularly in Brooklyn where shops
closed, tenants left and properties sold. Where were these brain-
trust engineers for the last year? PATH should consult with this
team to see if the two year shutdown could be reduced so it's not
24 hour work.

Re: JC Council to Vote on Canceling Two Abatement Deals for Non Compliance

The 3 Kushner buildings received 30 tax abatements in Journal Square for 30 years in 2013, the first year Steven Fulop became mayor. There are others as well, we also gave Kushner ten million redevelopment loan. Also, what the mayor calls affordable housing which received 30 year tax abatements are also renting at market rate, the example is the property on Bergen, near Montgomery across from the bagel store. I guess the mayor want to forget about the anniversary of the 75th tax abatement in which a cake was brought to a council meeting.

2019 Municipal Debt

Resolution 19-001 has the city's debt for 2019. General Debt $68.9 million, Water debt $3.8 million, School debt $5.2 million, Emergency Authorization $7.1 million. Total $85 million. The debt service does not show the bonding for Bayfront which would add more interest and principal payments to taxpayers.

If this is so doomed, why did you not circulate your petitions to try and waste the council's time and more taxpayer money? Could it be because most people don't really care?


Were you around when Vazquez sat on the City Council? If not, then why comment? If the one percent payroll tax is dismissed because it was not written by a member of the city council, it could affect the pocketbooks of those without tax abatements or under rent control. If the city does not fix this, then the state can come in and raise taxes on homeowners. That happened to Hoboken under the administration of Mayor Roberts.

It is not my opinion, development happened in the 1980s, here are 3 examples, Newport (the first 4 buildings and the mall), Dixon, and Society Hills. The law was changed in 1990 and tax abatements happened to market rate buildings which was illegal before. Newport got a tax abatement after the first four building were up. The assemblyman who represented the 31st district and worked as a lawyer for developers introduced the change in Trenton.

If the city did not give out sweetheart tax abatements, then there would be no need for a payroll tax. In fact, there should have been a lawsuit against tax abatements from day one. Development did not just happen in JC in happened in other parts of Hudson County which did not give out tax abatements.
