Cops cleared in criminal case are battling Jersey City over back pay

JERSEY CITY — Two Jersey City cops cleared of criminal charges in October are embroiled in a new legal fight over whether the city should have to pay them two years of back pay and reimburse their legal fees.

The cops — Lt. Kelly Chesler and Officer Michael O’Neill — have sued the city to get paid, but the city has called the lawsuits “premature” and wants a judge to dismiss them.

Man in prison for 2007 murder in Downtown Jersey City will get new trial

A man serving a 30-year prison sentence for killing a man inside a Downtown Jersey City luxury high rise will get a new trial after the state’s appellate division ruled that jurors were not told they could consider the possibility the killing was in self-defense.

The appellate decision, which was issued Thursday, means Zia Berisha will again stand trial for the murder of Michael Marro Jr., 39, who was found dead in his Warren Street home on Nov. 6, 2007.

Berisha’s trial attorney’s “failure to request a jury instruction on this defense prejudiced defendant’s right to a fair trial,” the appellate court ruled.

After 16 Years of Construction, American Dream Mall Will Finally Open. Will it Work?

Shopping malls might be living a nightmare, but New Jersey’s American Dream Mall is trying to do something bigger, better and more entertaining. Will it succeed?

The American Dream Mall—once given a deadline to open in 2014 when the Super Bowl was played in New Jersey—has become the butt of many Northern New Jersey residents’ jokes. It’s been empty for years, little more than a garish, multi-colored eyesore to the drivers on the New Jersey Turnpike.

But finally, after 16 years of starts and stops, missed deadlines, three developers, five governors and a major retail contraction, current developer Triple Five claims the $5 billion American Dream Mall in East Rutherford, N.J., will open its 3.1-million-square-foot center in April. That includes 1.5 million square feet of retail, the largest indoor amusement park in the Western Hemisphere, an indoor ski lift, a DreamWorks-branded indoor waterpark, a Cirque du Soleil venue and a National Hockey League-sized ice rink. Subsequent phases call for two hotels and a convention center.

“There’s a lot that you can see with your eye to let you know this thing is coming soon,” said David Townes, a senior director of retail at Cushman & Wakefield whose office is next to the American Dream site in the Meadowlands Complex.

But even as it nears the finish line, not everybody’s convinced the American Dream Mall will really come to fruition. (At least not on the April timetable.)

“We’ve been told this story a gazillion times,” Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop, who recently criticized the project on Twitter, told Commercial Observer. “I gloss over these dates on when they’re projected to open.”

For fourth time, Jersey City school board votes to get rid of superintendent

JERSEY CITY — Maybe the fourth time will be the charm?

The Jersey City school board on Monday passed its fourth resolution since Jan. 31 that tosses Marcia V. Lyles as the district’s superintendent.

The vote was unanimous, with the board’s lone supporter of Lyles, Matt Schapiro, absent. There was no discussion.

The board’s repeated votes to get rid of Lyles come as her allies accuse board members of deposing her illegally.

Murphy signs bill to boost New Jersey’s minimum wage to $15

By Updated 02/04/2019 02:24 PM EST

Gov. Phil Murphy signed legislation Monday that will gradually raise New Jersey’s minimum wage to $15 an hour for most workers by 2024, making it the fourth state to approve a policy that not long ago was considered a pipe dream in Democratic circles.

“It is a great day to make history for New Jersey’s working families,” Murphy said in an auditorium in Elizabeth that was bursting with supporters and had the feel of a pep rally. “We’ve talked long enough about putting New Jersey on a responsible path to raising the minimum wage. Today we start on this path.”

This bill signing culminates more than a year of negotiations and is a major victory for Murphy and the state’s Democrat-controlled Legislature. It also puts New Jersey on a growing list of blue states — California, Massachusetts and New York, as well as the District of Columbia — that have authorized such a jump in the minimum wage.

Expungement must be a part of new pot law | Jersey Journal editorial

When it comes to proposed marijuana legalization legislation, we stand with the mayors of the state’s two biggest cities in their demand that automatic and immediate expungement for certain past convictions be included.

Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop and Newark Mayor Ras Baraka held a joint appearance last week vowing that they won’t allow marijuana dispensaries in their cities if stronger social justice provisions aren’t included in the legal pot legislation that eventually becomes law in New Jersey.

Re: Sweeney proposes slapping payroll tax on Jersey City businesses to fund schools

Home away from home
Home away from home


Payroll tax is the best option to fund Jersey City schools | Opinion

According to the new school funding formula, Jersey City is dramatically overfunded, but when you look around at our public schools that doesn’t seem to be the case. Our students are being provided with a high quality education, because we want to ensure the best possible outcomes for every child. The district spending is not extravagant or careless. Still, over the course of the next seven years the school system will be weaned off of $175 million in state aid. This will give the city three options going forward.

We could’ve left the school district to fend for itself. Force them make due with a third of their current budget, and leave them to cut programs and stagnate their technology adoption. We could’ve raised property taxes to replace the lost state aid with local funding, which would have added another anchor to an already overburdened tax. Instead, we chose the third option – to take advantage of statewide legislation which allowed the city to establish a payroll tax. It was the only option that would not hurt our schools or burden the citizens of Jersey City.

The payroll tax is designed to benefit the people of Jersey City. Its revenue will go strictly to our schools, investing in our future and allowing us to continue offering a quality education to the children of our city. It is a minimal one percent tax so the impact on individual businesses is miniscule but in total, it will bring in enough money to offset the lost state aid. Lastly, and possibly most importantly, the tax would not apply to the payrolls of Jersey City residents. This is huge for our city, as it will essentially incentivize hiring from within the city.

Jersey City has become an extension of New York City. We are home to countless large corporations with people traveling to the city from all over North Jersey and Southern New York to work here. Over 90,000 people commute into Hudson County every day. Unfortunately, none of those people are contributing to our tax base. While they spend their days in Jersey City, their property taxes are going to their hometowns. The payroll tax allows corporations to contribute to our community and invest in our children, our future.

The tax does not apply to residents of Jersey City, it is not simply a one percent tax on a company’s entire payroll, but rather a one percent tax on the salaries of people not living in the city. The benefit to residents is two-fold, the money will fund the school district without raising taxes, and it encourages companies to hire from our community. These companies offer high wage jobs and encouraging them to hire more people from Jersey City will continue to bolster our local economy. When more people live and work in Jersey City, more money gets reinvested into local shops and businesses, keeping the money here is good for all of us.

When I first saw the numbers for the new school funding formula my mind was reeling. I was determined, however, to find a way to continue offering our district a sufficient budget without penalizing the people of Jersey City. Raising taxes was never an option, it would only make the area less affordable and hurt the children and families I was looking to help. Cutting the budget was not a viable option either, as that, again, would hurt the public and make the city a less desirable place to live.

The payroll tax was then and still is, our best option. It is estimated to generate roughly $80 million a year which will soften the blow of the state funding cut and allow us to continue offering high quality education to all of our children. This is a long term, sustainable solution, with multifaceted benefits for our community. A one percent tax on a portion of companies’ payrolls is not going to drive business out of our city. For corporations, the additional tax is a drop in the bucket, but for the school district, the revenue will be the water that keeps it afloat.

Jersey City school board sinks to new low | Jersey Journal editorial

The Jersey City school board hit a new low Thursday night when members bowed to ugly pressure from the teachers union and fired Superintendent of Schools Marcia Lyles.

The ax fell just hours after it was learned that Lyles is suing the board and the union, charging her civil rights have been violated and alleging harassment and a hostile workplace, among other things.

Hostile is an understatement.

Murray Kushner’s KRE snags $258M loan for phase II of massive Jersey City project

The second phase at Journal Squared is slated to open in 2021
By Meenal Vamburkar | January 25, 2019 09:00AM

The KRE Group has landed funding for the second phase of its massive Jersey City rental development.

The firm secured $258 million in construction financing, KRE said in a state ment Friday. Wells Fargo and Capital One provided the loan.

The funding will be used for Tower Two at Journal Squared, a mixed-use project comprised of three buildings with 1,840 rental units in total. Tower Two will stand 71 stories tall, with 704 residences, and is slated to open in 2021.

“The closing of this loan signifies another important milestone for the Journal Squared development,” Jonathan Kushner, president of KRE Group, said in the statement. “Construction of the second tower is already well underway and we look forward to bringing it to completion.”

Upgrading the PATH System

The general manager of the commuter line says the New York-New Jersey region depends on investments in infrastructure.

To the Editor:

Re “Even With Packed Trains, PATH Will Lose $400 Million This Year” (news article, Jan. 3):

Commuter railroads keep the region moving in a safe and reliable manner. And it’s no secret that, like all major passenger railroads in the United States, they operate at a deficit and require significant subsidies. PATH is no different, and the amount of expenses it recovers through fares is on par with other American transit systems.

But the benefit it provides goes well beyond an affordable ride in or out of New York and to Newark, Harrison, Jersey City and Hoboken, 24/7.

In 2017, PATH’s yearly ridership numbers approached 83 million, compared with 73.7 million in 2014, an 11 percent increase in just three years. That’s because major new building developments were built precisely because of their proximity to a PATH station. The residents who have since flocked to them and become riders are a true testament to the system’s value.

As these communities grow, we must continue to invest in infrastructure built more than 100 years ago — from station upgrades, to critical repairs, to modern signaling systems and safety technology. The region depends upon it.

N.J. Supreme Court won’t hear $2 million tax case out of Jersey City

JERSEY CITY — The New Jersey Supreme Court last week declined to weigh in on a lower court’s ruling that requires Jersey City to repay $2 million to the developer behind a failed tower project in Journal Square.

An appellate panel in August ruled that it was grossly unfair for the city to take the $2 million — a prepayment of the payments-in-lieu-of-taxes the developer planned to owe the city — and it need to be given back. New Jersey Supreme Court Chief Justice Stuart Rabner said on Jan. 14 the decision would not be reviewed by the state’s highest court.

New Jersey-New York area lost 5,700 millionaires in 2018

, North Jersey Record Published 3:08 p.m. ET Jan.

The New Jersey area lost thousands of millionaires in 2018, even as their ranks grew worldwide. 

A tumultuous year for global stock markets and federal and state tax changes are responsible, experts say.

The New Jersey-New York population center that encompasses New York City, Jersey City and Newark last year lost more than 5,700 of its high-net-worth individuals with liquid assets of $1 million to $30 million, according to a new report from research firm Wealth-X.

Debra Taylor of Taylor Financial Group in Franklin Lakes said she has been advising many of her wealthy New Jersey clients to set up residency in other states. The loss of unlimited state and local tax deductions for the 2018 federal tax year is drastically elevating the metro area's already high cost of living for some, she said.

Jersey City council votes to take away — yes, take away — a tax break

JERSEY CITY — Jersey City’s council did something stunning on Wednesday. It took away a tax break from a Downtown real estate developer.

Under its last two mayors, the city has approved tax abatements for nearly every developer who asked for one, unless they are related to President Trump. But Mayor Steve Fulop, who asked the council to rescind the tax break, characterized the move as a fulfillment of his 2013 promise to curtail tax long-term abatements.

The nine-member board of the Jersey City Employment and Training Program voted 5-3-1 in favor of terminating McGreevey at the tail end of a meeting that ran over two hours and featured pro-McGreevey testimonials from nearly 30 people crowded inside in a conference room in JCETP’s Martin Luther King Drive office, called Martin’s Place.

McGreevey, the embattled chief of the nonprofit Jersey City Employment and Training Program, has been told its nine-member board may discuss actions that could “adversely impact” his employment, sources with knowledge of the communication have told The Jersey Journal.

Same for Jimmy Davis, the mayor of Bayonne, where the storm led to a complete closure of the Bayonne Bridge for more than five hours. North Bergen Mayor Nicholas Sacco, whose township includes steep hills that are treacherous for drivers during the mildest of storms, also sent no emails or texts.

For six years, Jersey City schools chief was at center of conflict

JERSEY CITY — Over the last six years, Schools Superintendent Marcia V. Lyles has been one of the city’s most divisive public officials, a woman lauded by her supporters as someone who cares only for making public education work for all Jersey City children, but vilified by critics as a cold, calculating interloper.

Lyles’ tenure is coming to an end, with the school board voting Wednesday to say they will not rehire her when her contract expires in 2020. Speaking to education advocates about the board’s action illustrates how deep the divide is when it comes to Jersey City’s schools chief.

JERSEY CITY ? Former Gov. Jim McGreevey, who is potentially on his way out as chief of Jersey City’s prisoner re-entry program, alleges he is the victim of retaliation by Mayor Steve Fulop and is threatening to file a lawsuit against Fulop if he is fired.

In a Jan. 3 letter to Fulop, McGreevey attorney Michael Critchley said any termination of McGreevey as executive director of the Jersey City Employment & Training Program would violate New Jersey’s whistleblower act. The “apparent basis” for Fulop punishing McGreevey, Critchley claims, is McGreevey’s termination of a Fulop operative from JCETP last year.

That's fine, Jersey City police say, as long as you don't get behind the wheel afterward. To make sure people aren't driving when they've had one too many, police will have sobriety checkpoints in the city this weekend, Jersey City spokeswoman Ashley Manz said.

As part of the Jersey City Comprehensive Traffic Safety Program, the police department has been awarded the state Division of Highway Traffic Safety Grant in the amount of $28,440, to be used for initiatives such as sobriety checkpoints.
