Jersey City seeks to boost pay of department directors

JERSEY CITY — The city is proposing annual raises of $10,660 to $28,835 for nine department directors, citing a need to boost pay to keep top officials from fleeing city government for higher paying jobs.

The planned pay raises would be the first for the nine positions in more than a decade. The business administrator, clerk and corporation counsel would see their pay rise from $139,340 to $150,000. The directors of economic development, health, human resources, public works and recreation, plus the tax assessor, would get a pay boost from $121,165 to $150,000.

$2M in exchange for tax break in Jersey City was wrong, judges say

JERSEY CITY — Municipalities cannot require developers receiving tax breaks to prepay their payments-in-lieu-of-taxes but they can require contributions to affordable housing trust funds, an appellate panel ruled Thursday in a case centered on a failed Jersey City tower project.

The three-judge panel said Jersey City can keep the $710,769 in trust fund contributions it received from the project's developers, but it must return $2 million in upfront payments the developers gave the city in 2009. The Aug. 9 ruling, which calls the prepayments grossly unfair, partially reverses a lower-court ruling that was entirely in favor of the developers, Multi-Employer Property Trust.

Hold on marijuana offenses has support in Jersey City

JERSEY CITY -- On the same day New Jersey's attorney general announced an immediate adjournment of marijuana-related cases in municipal courts, people in the state's second-largest city appeared to welcome the news.

In Jersey City's Journal Square neighborhood Tuesday, a number of passersby shared their thoughts on the future of marijuana in the state just hours after New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal advised all local and county prosecutors to put a hold on marijuana-related offenses until Sept. 4. 

Many see the move as a prelude to eventual decriminalization and legalization.

Kushner v. Fulop: Inside the collapse of Jersey City tower project deal

 JERSEY CITY — It was April 2009 and Mayor Jerramiah Healy was seeking re-election.

Healy and other city officials gathered outside a vacant lot in Journal Square, a site they promised would soon be home to a massive, two-tower development, the first skyscrapers in the city's center. The property was in a prime location, directly next to the Journal Square PATH transportation hub.

The project represented "a great step forward" for Jersey City, Healy said.

Four years later, Healy was again seeking re-election, this time facing a challenge from Councilman Steve Fulop. At a debate in the Journal Square Loew's theater, Fulop noted that there had been zero progress on the still-vacant site.

Jersey City Is the Under-the-Radar Gem You Should Know

Located directly across the Hudson River from downtown Manhattan, Jersey City is an often overlooked neighborhood that some consider the sixth New York borough. While we wouldn’t go that far, Jersey City is a place that is worth your time. Easily accessible from New York City (it takes about the same time to get to Jersey City from Manhattan as it does from Manhattan to Brooklyn), the bustling community is full of incredible restaurants, high-end cocktail bars, great shopping, and plenty of solid hotels. If you hang out near the waterfront, you’ll find the best view of the New York City skyline in the area. Whether you’re looking to embark on a staycation adventure away from NYC or are traveling to the city and want a cheaper place to stay that has a ton to offer, Jersey City is the best bet. Here are our favorite places to play, shop, eat, drink, and sleep there.

Developers at odds over future of Jersey City neighborhood

JERSEY CITY — A four-block Downtown Jersey City neighborhood that sits in the shadow of the New Jersey Turnpike Extension is at the center of a tug-of-war between developers with competing plans to transform the area into the city's hottest new residential neighborhood.

Developer Sandy Weiss of Manhattan Building Company has plans to build nearly 900 apartments in the area, but property owners have their own development proposals that the city is looking to halt to make way for Weiss' project. The property owners now face the prospect of having their lots seized via eminent domain as the city argues they've had more than a decade to change the neighborhood and haven't.

Jersey City payroll tax waiting for gov's signature

The proposed Jersey City payroll tax awaits Gov. Phil Murphy's signature, but it's unclear whether it will become law.

The plan, which would allow for a maximum 1 percent tax on a Jersey City business' total payroll, was dreamed up as a way to offset potential cuts in state aid to the city's public school district. Those cuts are part of a school funding formula bill proposed by Democratic state Sen. President Stephen Sweeney and also awaiting Murphy's pen.

Kushner Cos. threatens to sue Fulop for defamation, mayor refuses to apologize

By John Heinis/Hudson County View

“I got another letter from the Kushner family today threatening to sue me AGAIN. They demand an apology for me saying the truth + they even drafted a tweet for me to send out. It’s not going to happen. I’ll revise my tweet slightly when THEY apologize publicly,” Fulop tweeted late this morning.

“I’m not going to apologize for saying the truth. Whether it’s inaccurately reporting ownership in properties, or misrepresenting $ partners, or outright saying in China that $ in Jersey City properties means lots to the family, i think the public can judge 4 themselves[.]”

Jersey City unveils new rules for newspaper boxes

JERSEY CITY — The City Council will consider new regulations on newspaper boxes following Mayor Steve Fulop's removal of hundreds of the receptacles from the sidewalks of Jersey City.

The new rules, spelled out in an ordinance up for initial approval on Wednesday, would require publishers to apply for a newsrack permit, keep the boxes clean and stock them regularly.

4 Hudson lawmakers punt on school funding bill

Nearly half of Hudson County's Trenton delegation did not vote on a school funding bill that would lead to a massive cut in state aid for Jersey City's public-school district while boosting funding for districts elsewhere in the county and statewide.

Two of the lawmakers — Assemblywomen Angelica Jimenez, D-West New York, and Angela McKnight, D-Jersey City — said they were not in Trenton for the Thursday vote. Both told The Jersey Journal they had children with school functions that night. Jimenez said she would not have voted "yes" if she had been present, while McKnight declined to say whether she would have or not.

Jersey City 2021: The short list of mayoral candidates

If Fulop runs, ‘it won’t be no cakewalk’

By David Wildstein

With three years still left in his term, there is a decent chance Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop is already a lame duck.  Some Democrats say he has already grown bored with being mayor and is looking for his next opportunity.  Twenty months ago, it looked as though Fulop might be governor, but that fizzled quickly.

Mayor is no longer a fallback position as the 41-year-old man of ambition waits for something better to come around.  He could still win in 2021, but as one Hudson pol said, “it won’t be no cakewalk.”

Fulop’s inability to deliver his own Democratic County Committee in Tuesday’s race for county chair has left a bunch of Hudson County insiders certain he would face a tough race if he does run. He has added some formidable enemies since he won 77% of the vote last November, and some say his second-term is already struggling amidst fights with Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise and the Polish government, and more importantly, an unpopular property tax revaluation.

Now Fulop is toxic among Democratic organization circles.  In a county where the twelve mayors typically meet like knights at the roundtable to discuss party business, the mayor of Jersey City has no presence in that room.  Now it will somewhat resemble the days when Republican Bret Schundler was the Jersey City mayor, with Democrats running that party without the outsized, 362-county committee vote-wielding mayor of the state’s second largest city at the table.    Either Tom DeGise will occupy that chair, nor it will just be eleven mayors in the room.

A short list of potential candidates for mayor has already emerged, including: State Sen. Sandra Cunningham, former corporation counsel and 2017 candidate Bill Matsikoudis, city councilmen James Solomon, Rolando Lavarro, Danny Rivera and Michael Yun, Assemblyman Raj Mukherji, Hudson County Clerk Junior Maldonado, and former Assemblymen Sean Conners and Charles Mainor.  Add Freeholder Bill O’Dea, a Fulop cheerleader to that list, if the mayor doesn’t run again.  Tom DeGise said a while back that he has closed that chapter of his life — he lost a 2001 runoff — and would not run for mayor.

Fulop, Genova, Panepinto and Stanton to be honored at Jersey City Leadership Awards

By Meg Fry - Jersey City | Jun 6, 2018 at 7:20 am

The New Jersey City University Foundation will host the Jersey City Leadership Awards on Thursday, honoring four individuals who have had a tremendous impact on and positively transformed the community.

Steve Fulop, mayor of Jersey City, will be honored for his service and dedication to the advancement of the area.

Angelo Genova, partner at Genova Burns, will be honored for his innovation — and his willingness to share his ideas not just with his colleagues, but the community.

Stefania Panepinto, founder of Panepinto Galleries, will be recognized for her excellence in the arts (and will be hosting a silent auction at the event).

And Thomas Stanton Jr., the late former CEO and president of First Jersey National Bank, will be recognized posthumously for his legacy and his decision to build corporate offices along the Jersey City waterfront, which helped tremendously in making the Gold Coast into what it is today.

Jersey City biz groups criticize plan for payroll tax

 A plan to implement a payroll tax in Jersey City has alarmed business owners and industry groups who say it would limit Jersey City's competitiveness and aggravate an already inhospitable tax environment.

The plan, which is moving swiftly through the state Legislature, would allow the city to impose a 1 percent tax on a business' payroll, with potential exceptions for the wages of city residents. Proposed as a way to fund Jersey City's public-school district, it was approved on a party-line vote by a state Senate committee on Monday.

Canvs App spotlights Jersey City's public art | Logged On

By Troy Dreier/For the Jersey Journal

Thanks to a program from the mayor's office, gorgeous artist-created murals are popping up in Jersey City faster than a person can keep track of. Luckily, there's an app to help. Available for iOS, free app Canvs (www.canvsart.com) helps users discover and track impressive street art from coast to coast—but it got its start here in Jersey.

The app began as a passion project for Ralph André, an advertising creative director. While he loved the murals in his hometown of Jersey City, he found he often didn't know who created them or the story behind them. That curiosity led him to flesh out an app and connect with an iOS developer friend. Canvs launched in the fall of 2016. While the app originally focused on Jersey City, it expanded to other cities last spring.

485 Marin brings rentals from $2,300/month to Jersey City’s Hamilton Park

https://ny.curbed.com/2018/6/5/1742971 ... apartments-for-rent"}"> 2 comments

The project shares a developer and architect with Jersey City’s massive Journal Squared

By

The team behind Jersey City’s massive Journal Squared project launched their next rental west of the Hudson River today. The development, called 485 Marin, brings 397 rentals to Jersey City’s Hamilton Park, a neighborhood known more for its tree-lined streets and Victorian architecture than swanky rental buildings.

Architect Hollwich Kushner (HWKN) designed an 18-story brick-clad building for the site at the corner of Marin Boulevard and 8th Street and opposite the Newport Centre shopping mall. The building’s distinctive feature, its inward-facing stepped design, is intended to “create a visual corridor for the existing residents of the area,” according to a press release by developer KRE Group.

Voters wanted a revolution. How'd they get stuck with corrupt Bob Menendez? | Will Bunch

Updated: June 7, 2018 — 2:04 PM EDT

You say you want a revolution? Then you definitely want to see more candidates like Michael Starr Hopkins, a 31-year-old public defender and occasional TV political pundit who — for a brief month or two in late 2017 — toyed with throwing a large wrench into the creaky, oil-leaking machine that is New Jersey’s Democratic Party.

Hopkins’ scheme would have made him not just the youngest U.S. senator since a (former) whippersnapper named Joe Biden back in 1973 but an ardent advocate for progressive causes such as ending the college-debt crisis, supporting a Medicare-for-all health-care system, and legalizing pot.

And here’s the beauty part: A Hopkins campaign — with just a slight nudge from the far-too-influential powers-that-be in the Garden State — would have given New Jersey’s rank-and-file Democrats hope of wiping the slate clean from the embarrassing tenure of their incumbent Sen. Robert Menendez, whose greatest achievement has been showing that taking freebies like jet travel and swank vacations from a millionaire donor seeking political favors is no longer a felony in America’s comatose 21st-century democracy.

Late last fall, Hopkins — who lives in Jersey City — raised about $50,000 from small donors for an insurgent challenge to Menendez. Then he went to major party backers and power players like then-Gov.-elect Phil Murphy and Menendez’s Senate colleague Cory Booker, a 2020 presidential hopeful, to sell them on the power of a fresh face. There would be no sale. Hopkins couldn’t get past the front door.

“They were all very clear that they were backing Menendez — and that was decided even before the Justice Department decided not to prosecute him” a second time after a November hung jury, Hopkins told me this week. He said that many bigger Democratic donors told him they feared “retribution” if they bucked the establishment and gave Hopkins any money. The would-be insurgent abandoned his Senate campaign before it ever got off the ground.

Daughter of county executive runs for HCDO chair

by Al Sullivan
Reporter staff writer
May 27, 2018

Seated in a back booth at the VIP Diner, a well-known Jersey City political hangout for nearly a half century, Amy DeGise didn’t look remotely out of place.

The daughter of County Executive Tom DeGise is running to become chair of the Hudson County Democratic Organization (HCDO) the longtime county political organization, challenging state Sen. and Union City Mayor Brian Stack.

So it was fitting that she sat down to talk to The Reporter in a place where members of the old guard of Jersey City have long met. But DeGise has big plans to revamp and modernize the HCDO if she is elected on June 12 by a vote by committee people throughout Hudson County.

Council members uneasy about lifting topless ban on women

JERSEY CITY — An attempt to rewrite the city's 1980s-era obscenity law received a somewhat chilly reception by members of the City Council at its Monday caucus, with council members expressing specific concern over the plan to lift the ban on women appearing topless in public.

The measure, which deals specifically with sex toys, female breasts and body parts in intimate areas, led to an unusually uncomfortable and occasionally giggly conversation among council members. Ward D Councilman Michael Yun was unwilling to utter the word "breasts," referencing them as "those things" instead.

In Jersey City, It’s Kushner vs. Kushner in a Race to Develop

By Charles V. Bagli - May 21, 2018

JERSEY CITY — The decade-long blood feud between the Kushner brothers, Charles and Murray, has already put one brother in jail.

Now, the men, who haven’t spoken in 15 years, are rivals in the development of Journal Square in Jersey City, the site of one failed project after another for the past three decades.

Their ability to get along — or not — could affect this important corner of a rapidly changing city of 264,000 people.

Journal Square is less a neighborhood than a maze of streets occupied by a bus depot and a PATH station, dowdy retail, a community college, low-income housing and a restored landmark theater converted into a Jehovah’s Witnesses Assembly Hall.

Fulop opposes bill introduced by Hudson legislators that would halt property revals

Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop is “not a supporter” of a new bill introduced by three Hudson County legislators that would temporarily halt property revaluations so that residents have time to adjust to the “fiscal shock.”

By John Heinis/Hudson County View

Bill S-2566, introduced by state Senators Brian Stack (D-33), also the Union City Mayor, and Sandra Cunningham (D-31), would potentially take effect immediately and would allow municipalities to postpone applying reval results until January 2019 – as long as those results were not applied to tax bills before April of this year.

Meanwhile, Assemblyman Raj Mukherji (D-33), has introduced the legislation in the state’s lower house.

“This bill would delay the implementation of certain property tax revaluations to provide municipal governing bodies, the Division of Taxation, and the Legislature additional time to limit fiscal shock associated with implementing revaluations,” the bill description says.

Federal lawsuit targets plan to move Polish massacre statue

JERSEY CITY – Four people filed a lawsuit in Newark federal court on Tuesday morning aimed at stopping a plan to remove the Exchange Place monument commemorating the victims of a 1940 Polish massacre.

The lawsuit alleges Jersey City and Mayor Steve Fulop do not have authority to remove the 34-foot Katyn Memorial because the City Council has not approved any relocation. The plaintiffs – Bart Bagniewski, Boguslava Wang, Slawek Platta, and sculptor Andrzej Pityank – are seeking a temporary restraining order stopping the city from moving the monument.
