Do you really truly think that Downtown Jersey City is going to be a rowdy spring break destination for drunk collegiates?

What does any of that have to do with the ban on toplessness and sex toys? Yvonne you're usually full of BS but this one is even more surpising. jcneighbor is right, you and Boggiano seem to be stuck in some timewarp from 40 years ago.


Also that link you just posted has this in huge letters right down at the bottom:
Sexual violence has fallen by half in the last 20 years.

You're over here complaining about statues for foreigners, and then demand we have public statues of religious symbols because there were priests on the ship with Columbus? Columbus, the foreign slave-driving psycopathic torture fanatic that never even set foot in the US?

Yes, my comments are far fetching, such as monuments should be a reflection of the US history. After all, I do not see US monuments in other countries especially the Middle East.
Besides loads of WW2 memorials, there are 9/11 memorials in a few countries around the world. A big difference of course, is that the US is a nation of immigrants, and has not sent many immigrants out to other countries.

lol yeah right. I go up and Down Newark Ave almost every day, the traffic isn't any worse than it used to be except for the construction by the cemetery. There is never any traffic backup around Newark & Jersey Ave. The idea that it's backing up all the way to Monteleone's is just fantasy.

Yvonne, you know the MUA is autonomous and not under the control of the Mayor's Office right? Fulop doesn't set the rates that the MUA pays. These rate increases were started by the MUA before Fulop even became mayor.

Hopefully the MUA does give some of that money back though, it's outrageous that they're hiking rates and accumulating money for no reason.

it sounds like you're trying to buy an apartment in a 2-family home, not the entire home, is that right? Because if you're buying the entire house I'm not sure why tandem parking or an HOA would be an issue.

Agree, the cap for sick leave pay should be $0, not $15,000.

Also I saw something recently about the pension fund giving 7% returns? Is that right? If so that's pretty outrageous and should be cut in half.

Well, exept for that whole "move the election to increase turnout" thing. I can't remember the numbers, but didn't turnout go down slightly in this last November election?
It was to increase turnout but also to reduce expenses to the city by having one election instead of two.

Anyway, I just looked and turnout in 2013 was 39,639, and in 2017 was 39,099. So yeah a slight change. But 2013 was a big year with Healy vs Fulop. This year it was pretty much guaranteed Fulop was going to win so it wasn't as big of an election.

THAT'S BECAUSE THE HOUSES ARE WORTH MORE MONEY NOW YOU DUNDERHEAD. If your $50,000 shack gained $2 million in value you should be thrilled to pay whatever amount of taxes come at you because you are RICH. Development doesn't raise your taxes arbitrarily, it raises your taxes because you're RICH AND OWN A $2 MILLION HOUSE.

It's almost like the houses in Downtown are worth much more than the average in the county. Weird.

The point is the entire city would be better off, including those with reduced assessments, if the state made a one time exception and had a stepup/phase in assessment. If so, the current reval would never have taken as long as it did to finally occur. The incentives to do so were not right under the current law.

And I've already pointed out how that will not happen, and doesn't make any sense. To present it more clearly than before, and add to it:

• Your proposal is almost certainly illegal under current law

• The state legislators would be fools to vote for it, since it will reward this form of negligence, and give other municipalities an incentive to keep delaying revals

• Jersey City doesn't deserve special treatment, since its chief role here is to delay and obstruct and sue and refuse to follow the law, to the bitter end

• Anyone with half a brain will see this as a transparent attempt to add yet another delay to the reval

• This is a problem that JC caused for itself, by going 3 decades without adjusting its taxes, and it's not Trenton's job to fix it

• It is utterly false that the "entire city" will benefit, as the tens of thousands of property owners who are scheduled for a tax cut will need to pay more taxes

• The people who are facing a tax hike had years to prepare, it's not like this was a secret

• The people who are facing a tax hike did nothing whatsoever to earn or deserve any special treatment whatsoever -- in fact, they've benefitted for years (if not decades) by paying less than their fair share

In short: Your "phase in" proposal is deeply unfair; it incentivizes municipal negligence; and it's not going to happen anyway. Pass.
Well put. People calling for a phase in are being greedy and encouraging more bad behavior.

It's incredible that the city refuses (is there a better, more apt description for their dereliction of duty?) to ticket or enforce easy things that could help the city coffers and lessen the tax burden of city residents.

A brief list of things that could be done to increase revenue:
- enforce parking regulations (zone violations, parked too close to curb, crosswalk blockings, etc)
- enforce basic traffic regulations (speeding, rolling through stop signs, running red lights, etc)
- enforce sidewalk issues
- increase permit parking fee ($15 for yearly permits is a JOKE...!)
- animal control enforcement (failure to clean after dogs, verify and fine for dog license/registration violations)

Cities should absolutely not rely on fines for budgetary reasons, because doing so encourages the government to invent new fines and come up with other ways to pillage the pockets of citizens. Taxes are and always should be the primary method for funding government.

This is the same reason why civil asset forfeiture is so perverse. If cops receive funding from stealing from citizens, they will always find new excuses to steal property.

While it's obvious that the overtime / off-duty program needs a rework...
Quote:
Of the roughly 120 cops who joined the force since 2016, 27 made more than $45,000 last year counting overtime, city payroll records show. If their off-duty work is included, 29 topped $60,000.

$37k is an astoundingly low number for a police officer, and $45k with overtime is still really low. Maybe the pay scale needs a total rework so that officers start off with higher numbers and don't get crazy raises to the point of making $250k/year eventually.
