JC Council Proposes to Limit Public Speaking at Public Hearings

The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY — In the aftermath of the City Council's June 13 meeting that dragged on for nine hours, the nine-member body is considering a new limit on how long members of the public can speak on an issue.

Under a measure up for initial OK next week, members of the public would have a five-minute cap on their comments during public hearings for ordinances on second reading, hearings for which there is currently no limit. The cap would mirror an existing one on speakers during each meeting's general public comment portion.

Agreed - and they have parking if you're driving. To the OP - hold your nose and get your issue solved in person. It's the NJDMV - you don't want to deal with the larger issue if your docs expire or become invalid. Good luck and keep us updated!

Hearing on Jersey City's Katyn memorial pushes council meeting into wee hours


By Terrence T. McDonald tmcdonald@jjournal.com
The Jersey Journal

So things start to get loopy at Jersey City Council meetings once they go beyond midnight.

At the council's Wednesday night session, the body's nine members sat for a near record nine-hour session, just over six hours of that on a single topic: the planned relocation of the Exchange Place monument to the 1940 Katyn massacre.

Snoop Dogg to headline Jersey City Fourth of July celebration
Jun 15, 2018


JERSEY CITY – The Fourth of July celebrations being held in the Exchange Place area of Jersey City will feature rapper Snoop Dogg.

Snoop Dogg is also a singer, songwriter, record producer, television personality, and actor, who has sold more 23 million albums in the United States and 35 million albums worldwide.

He will headline Jersey City’s fifth annual July 4th festival on the Hudson Waterfront to celebrate Independence Day. The carnival-style spectacle will take place at the Hudson River Waterfront and the adjoining area surrounding Harborside, both of which have light rail stops for easy commutes from nearby towns.

The all-day music, food, technology and entertainment experience boasts views of the New York City skyline, and will become the scene of the state’s largest fireworks show.

The celebration will begin at noon with a full-scale carnival, continuous entertainment, several beer gardens, and an elite conglomerate of food trucks. The show will culminate with the world-renowned fireworks company Grucci lighting up the skyline from multiple barges on the Hudson River.

KEARNY -- Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop is accused of shoving a cop at Kearny High School Tuesday night during the Hudson County Democratic Organization election, but police say he won't be charged.

Kearny Mayor Al Santos said the incident occurred outside a voting booth in a room attached to the high school's cafeteria but Fulop has denied making contact with a police officer and called Santos' allegations "baseless" and "clearly just politics."

JERSEY CITY – Pleas by scores of Polish-Americans and others not to relocate a monument to thousands of Poles massacred by the Soviet Union during World War II fell largely on deaf ears at the June 13 council meeting as the City Council adopted an ordinance that would allow the statute to be relocated one block south to York Street.

(Where is the NJ.com/JJ reporting on this?)

Apologize to the Kearny cop you shoved, Santos says to JC Mayor Fulop

13 JUNE 2018 BY KEVIN CANESSA | JOURNALIST & WEBMASTER

Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop owes the rookie Kearny police officer he shoved last night an apology, at the very least, Kearny Mayor Alberto G. Santos told The Observer earlier today.

This all stems from an incident Santos says occurred Tuesday night, June 12, at Kearny High School, at a contentious meeting of the Democratic County Committee to pick the party’s chairperson for the next term.

Santos says Fulop, an ally of Union City Mayor Brian Stack who was running for the top seat — Stack lost to County Executive Tom DeGise’s daughter, Amy DeGise — was trying to make his way into a room that had a voting machine in it for committee members to vote for either DeGise or Stack.

Thing is, only poll workers and those voting are allowed in that room, according to the bylaws of the Hudson County Democratic Organization.

When the Kearny police officer assigned to a door to that room wouldn’t let the Jersey City CEO in, that’s when Fulop reportedly shoved the cop to try to gain access.

Kearny Mayor says Fulop shoved cop
Police Chief will investigate incident; no word on criminal charges

By David Wildstein

12 Jun 2018
11:12 pm

Kearny mayor Alberto Santos says that Jersey City mayor Steve Fulop shoved one of his police officers tonight while attending the Hudson County Democratic county chairman election.

“He shoved one our police officers,” Santos told the New Jersey Globe. “One of our first-year police officers who was on the job was pushed by Mayor Fulop.”

Santos declined to say if charges would be filed against Fulop.

“I will speak with the chief of police tomorrow and got more specifics on the incident.”

Fulop did not immediately respond to a 11:02 PM request for comment via social media. If he does respond, his comment will be added to this story.

Earlier this evening, Fulop suffered an embarrassing defeat when political rival Amy DeGise, a Jersey City Board of Education member, won an estimated 135 of about 300 county committee votes in Jersey City that the mayor was supposed to control.

f your request for access to government record has been denied, you have the right to challenge the custodian's denial by filing a complaint in Superior Court or filing a complaint with the Government Records Council (GRC). The Council can also assist in resolving questions about a denial of access. You can contact the GRC online by visiting their website at www.nj.gov/grc, by e-mail at grc@dca.state.nj.us, by mail at PO Box 819, Trenton, NJ 08625, or call them on their toll-free phone number, 866-850-0511.

Re: Citi Bike
Home away from home
Home away from home


6/1/18 - NY Post:

Lyft plans to purchase the company that operates Citi Bike, a new report says.

The ride-share app is moving to purchase Motivate, which runs Citi Bike and other bike-share programs in several cities. Including New York City, it also operates in Boston, Washington, DC, and Chicago, according to the tech site The Information.

The purchase would be worth at least $250 million, the site reported.

Lyft officials declined to comment on the pending purchase and would not say how the move will affect New York City operations. Motivate did not return a phone call.

Lyft isn’t the first ride-share company to get into the bike game. Uber purchased Brooklyn-based dockless bike-share company Jump in April.

More

FWIW - Lyft is the sponsor of Hudson Bike Share - serving other parts of Hudson County. Maybe this deal will (sensibly) bring the area's bike share programs together.

The Republican tax cuts signed by President Trump repealed the Obamacare individual mandate tax nationwide, but New Jersey residents will be stuck paying it due to the state’s Democrat legislature and governor. Governor Phil Murphy on Wednesday signed the new tax into law that will impose the tax on residents who choose not to purchase “qualifying” health insurance as defined by Obama-era regulations.

So yes, even after the reval bumps up some people's property tax rate (and lowers others), JC's property tax rate is lower than most of NJ.


So I guess the people downtown who are going from $14,000 to $40,000 should find comfort that they are paying low taxes?


Yes, and in the knowledge they've saved tens and tens of thousands of dollars by not paying their fair share while the poor homeowners in Greenville, Society Hill, and other areas have been carrying them.


...And they can now sell their homes at a massive profit - or tap into the substantial equity that they've amassed on the backs of non-downtown taxpayers for all the years they've lived here! Bonus!

Dashawn Mixson faces up to life in prison for the March 28 fatal shooting of 19-year-old Dajour Riley on Union Street.

Nearby surveillance captured the 11:45 a.m. shooting. Riley's girlfriend, who was four months pregnant at the time, testified the two were leaving a doctor's office when a gunmen shot at Riley as he was in the front seat of his vehicle.

Re: Am I allowed to put up fliers informing neighbors about a felon who has moved into the neighborh
Home away from home
Home away from home


It sounds as if the OP has a couple of issues ongoing here - the ex-felon tenant, the new landlord, a gentrifying neighborhood that he is a long-time resident of, etc.

For all - tenants, you do have rights - the right to habitability being a key right that you can defend and protect. And an ex-felon has a right to habitability, too, dear neighbors.

In fact, the felon may be partially protected by these HUD guidelines (not a law - guidelines) which were advised in 2016.

And like Caj brought up, the landlord had no responsibility to let anyone know a felon was moving in - he owns the property - he can basically do as he pleases within the framework of applicable law.

Anyone who is renting needs to be informed. This is a great place to start:

Tenants Rights in NJ

Also, if your landlord is using said felon to create an environment where you "have" to move, well, that's pretty shady, but not unheard of. See more here and a good article here.

Finally, the city has an office for tenant/landlord resources here.

Good luck, Monmouth. I hope this gets worked out for you, but do keep a cool head about you.
