Agree on the snow clean-up. Great job.

But why is all the road digging going on over the winter? My street isn't cleared - likely because the plows can't clear streets with the metal plates covering the excavation.

Speculation: is it driven by the risk of losing federal funds for roads and infrastructure - with the new Trump administration?

There are very few low-cost home security options unless you are tech savvy. Over the years - the most dependable and low-cost (relatively) diy system for me - has been my logitech alert system.

Other things you might try:
- Cable/internet provider - might have something.
- Canary: Blurb is promising. Personally wouldn't trust it. https://canary.is/flex/
- Blue Iris: http://blueirissoftware.com/ - you need to be tech savv. Set up your own server...

If that's the case then a letter of complaint should be forwarded to head-office, so they can introduce change and address any deficiencies - It could be a case of retraining, new procedures or even removing the person who is incompetent or lacks aptitude to maintain the role responsibly.

Voice your concern, things only change when people complain.

That happens a lot. They mark stuff as delivered when they haven't even been down my street - or their cloaking device hides their van from my cameras. I give them a few days and usually packages show up.

For low-value stuff - call amazon. They typically let you keep the dups.

NO YOU ARE NOT.

If you were, you might have enquired how. She caught the collar of her dress on a loose screw on a badly pre-assembled cot and choked to death. My father donated the manufacturer's settlement to charity at the time because my mom didn't want what she considered was tainted "blood money".

Point of the story - they didn't blame the cot (or the gun or the knife). The blame lies squarely with the people behind it. And I think the NRA is mostly wrong - but I agree with with one of their mantras - "guns don't kill people - people kill people". The dog version: "pitties don't kill people - bad owners of pitties kill people".

But guess you also believed kids saying "the dog ate their homework" when you were a teacher....

My baby sister choked to death. Not on a hot dog, but it could have been. You appear to have no clue of the impact of a young child's death on a family - no matter the cause - dog, hot dog, whatever. The only thing I'm mocking is your blind ignorance.

Maybe more striking is the fact that you are FAR more likely to die from eating a hot dog (choking from inhalation of food) than from being attacked by an actual dog.

Death by a real dog- 1 in 116,448.

Death by a hot dog- 1 in 3,375.




Except 6-year-old Logan Braatz did not die from a hot dog but was maul to death by a dog. What a horrible death.


You know much about the relative horrors of being mauled by dogs and choking on wieners?


I do know the Heimlich maneuver will save someone's life. I used it on someone years ago but all the people who came to aid Logan Braatz was not able to save his life or prevent the hospitalization of the young girl. Too bad the media will not show his image after the mauling. Something like this should be in your brain, dtjcview. You take his death lightly.


And how callous of you to consider the death of children by other causes like auto accidents and choking on hot dogs - any less important. Oh wait - those deaths don't sell.

Think NJSA 59:2-3 means the public entity can exercise reasonable judgment - based on the evidence (or lack) of a reported danger.

I'd expect it's tough to prove the City is in the wrong when it comes to tree damage. For example, the City likely inspected and trimmed the tree after the prior incident - if only to remove the fallen tree limb. Best to consult a lawyer though.

I understand taxes are going to go up a lot on many downtown properties, but there is a big difference between 1.7% and 2% (or 2.2% as I believe Bodipooh speculated in some of his earlier missives).

The fact is we just don't know what the rate we will be, the only thing we can say is that if the appraisals are done correctly a $1 million house downtown should end up paying 4 times as much as a $250,000 place in the heights. Now if the heights house is actually valued at $500,000 (extended over the whole heights), it 'reduces' the downtown home's tax to only twice what the heights house is paying.

If you have been watching the market in the past two years it is not just downtown prices that are on the boil.

Robin.


Keep dreaming...the 2% or 1.79% already factors in estimated city-wide increases in valuation. The properties paying < %1 today will still end up paying close to double.

Today Curbed featured a bland profile of (mostly downtown) JC's best-kept secrets offered up by a Barcade employee who has lived in town for three years.

It's much the same as several other puff pieces in recent years selling the merits of DTJC to the Curbed readership on the other side of the river - certainly nothing offensive in her observations.

Nonetheless, scroll on down to the comment section and take a read of the screed written by "RealJCNative1". Reads like the shrill ranting of the "JC Take it Back" girl that started this thread a few years back. And of course, she's still furious about the "colonizers" taking over her town.

Yawn.

The way house prices have appreciated over the past couple of years will naturally lead to a fall in the tax rate, otherwise they are going to be collecting double the taxes they were previously.

Bodipooh bandies this 2% figure about, but it is based on nothing more than his own speculation.

1 or 2 family houses in the heights are now worth $400,000+, every one or two family in Journal Square is now worth $600,000+, if they all pay 2% the city would end up with too much money!

Robin.


If you assume the County calculates the assessed to true value ratio correctly (see column 2 in link), then Bodipooh's math is accurate. The difference between % increase in taxes and % house price appreciation will have an impact - but not as much as you might think. A huge number of downtown properties will see their taxes double - and ~1.8% of market value isn't an unreasonable estimate.

There are a few pockets in DT that are "just enough" higher that they didn't have standing water during Sandy. I think this links properly:

For Sandy - the map may be correct wrt basement flooding. But street-level flooding has been nowhere near as extensive anytime in the past decade - at least not west of Marin and north of Columbus. In this area, Sandy would have looked more like 3-4m on this link: http://geology.com/sea-level-rise/new-york.shtml


The sewers were the conduit for much of the flooding allowing the water to bypass high spots.


I agreed with your own post back in 2013. Think some of the newspapers published the 100-year flood elevation map as the "areas flooded by Sandy" - creating this myth on the extent of flooding. It's simply wrong.
