Re: It Cost $24,000 for Four Rising Tide Capital's Employees Health Insurance

My company pays a similar amount, with similar number of employees, and we are in the 07302 zip code. So I don't think that the zip code is having as large a negative effect as this article would make it out sound. My guess is that health care costs are high in all of NJ.

Anyone know why the guy with the hot dog cart gets to stick around? And all the other vendors are gone? He does not move every 20 min.

It is a short but glorious life for that artificial tree.

If it is one with the lights already built in, being on 24/7 for 7 weeks is probably about 10x's more use then a tree in a normal home sees over a holiday season.

I can't begrudge anyone fore getting a new one annually.

What would need to be done to get a conservancy effort off the ground? Would the city continue to be involved in any shape or form? Would the city ever contribute to such a project?

I also want to say that I think the process was well done and I think the park is looking great and can't wait until next summer.

Additionally jennymayla, how did you get "head bitch" into your profile? Is that solely the product of frequent posting? Cause I think it's funny either way.

Re: Jersey City Councilwoman Nidia Lopez a Florida Resident?
#8

Just can't stay away


Is there still the chance that she will step down before a decision is reached, and then Healy will be able to appoint someone? Or once this went to trial the judges ruling would dictate the decision?

I'm starting to think that she is going to get to keep the seat. it is going to hinge on what is the actual legal requirements to determine residency. It doesn't seem like having a drivers license makes the determination. Furthermore by her paying back FL it also seems to point that she is a "resident". I'm not saying she wasn't trying to duck the system, but I'm going bet she stays in office.

Lastly who is paying for her attorney? Is she footing the bill or is this coming off of our backs?

I signed up for FIOS last week received no less then 3 confirmations that they would be coming Saturday morning, only to have them never show up at all. And I was sitting next to my phone the entire time. A complete and total waste of time. At least I cleaned out one of my closets I guess.

Fulop said exactly what I was thinking as I read this article. Is there anyway to go back and look "redo" Crystal Point, or is that water under the bridge?

Re: Greenville: Paralyzed woman targets more than driver in civil suit - going after bar too.

I think the problem is this women needs money for the kind of care she is going to need to help in her recovery, and probably for most of her life. She needs to sue as many people as humanly possible to create as large a pool as possible to get that money from. In all likelihood the guy driving the car, even the car owner have limited insurance policies, and minimal to actually collect on. Furthermore being in prison doesn't really help his earning potential. I wish her and her family the best of luck and what must be a truly horrifying experience.

How is what this landlord doing anything different then Crystal Point, 77 Hudson or the litany of other buildings who demanded changes to their abatement's? This guy is trying to get his rent control leveled/lifted. That isn't a crime, and their even seems to be a system for which it happens. Although I suspect he would be better off if he brought a bag full of 100's with him to any meeting.

Re: ox restaurant

While I'm sorry to see Ox go, I do wonder now that the place has been brought up to speed with renovations and everything, will the next guy have an easier go if they open it as a restaurant? Also these business owners that sign a lease and get stuck paying rent while not open should look at alternatives, perhaps offering a portion of gross sales once they open in lieu of rent while they are renovating.

Did the guy at Atomic Wings really spend 2 years not opened and paying rent? I find this hard to believe, but then again who really knows.

Re: Councilwoman Elect Lopez a Florida Resident?

Just can't stay away


I actually thought that the residency requirements were even looser, something about being in the state during the election. I don't believe the Clinton's owned property in NY until after they left the White House. And it would be difficult to say they were NY residents while they lived in DC. And yes the liberal environment played a part in it, but so did residency.

Regardless this is off topic and old news. This current scandal, there is no way this women can be a city councilperson. It seems that she didn't meet very basic criteria for being an elected official.

What are the actual residency requirements to be a JC councilperson? Some states have very relaxed residency requirements. NY comes to mind, that is how Hillary was elected senator, and one of the reasons she picked NY.

Re: PARKING: Jersey City might refund drivers for 'illegal booting'

Just can't stay away


I don't like the answer that "It's too hard for us to pay it back" either, and that isn't what I'm condoning. I'd rather them wholesale say we f'd up we have changed the booting policy, and will now boot correctly.

You do raise an interesting point. While I don't necessarily want the Govt giving money from it's coffers, if a 3rd party did indeed profit from these illegal boots well that is something I can get behind.

To be honest when you break it down to a scant 5 boots a day it makes it even seem more frivolous.

Your right the policy that they were enforcing was awful, needed to be changed. It has the sooner we close the books on the Booting Campaign of Terror instituted by the JCPA, the sooner all the residents can heal.

I don't think your views are off the wall. I would just hate for the repayment to interfere with other affairs that are much more pressing for our community.

Here is the thing, we are all going to end up paying that money one way or the other through tax increases, or the next ticket that is incorrectly given.

You are right that it does send the wrong signal to the JCPA. However people have been made aware of the situation and I'm hoping that through better vigilance, and raised awareness the public will be able to react faster and nip such problems in the bud before they spiral out of control. Furthermore the director of parking says that booting is down, and I've even noticed a marked decrease in the boots I see around town. So I will naively say problem solved, let's move on to the bounty of issues that are costing us far more.

That said, if they are giving the money back I'll certainly figure out how to get my 150 bucks or whatever it was.

I actually agree with the dissenters on this one. While the booting policy is awful and way too aggressive it is water under the bridge. Refunding a million bucks to people booted 4 years ago is just not prudent. Rather then waste the time figuring out who is owed what, just fix the problem and move forward.

Re: City Council on: Revising tax abatement , revising car booting rules & controling animal control
#22
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


While I don't think that Canco and Crystal point are easy to compare Canco isn't in all the desirable a location. That Crystal Point is a stones throw away from three major transportation hubs in JC, and has stunning views on the east side, with no chance of those views ever being obstructed. Personally I'd let the developer bail on the project it'll only be a matter of time before it is picked up by someone else and completed. Real estate that plum will not stay for long.

The parking is another one that really should change. They are extremely aggressive with the boot, and it would be beneficial to the residents if a policy similar to the one SF suggested was implemented. Interesting that other council person is concerned about the decrease in revenue from that ordinance, but doesn't seem to care about the decrease in revenue from the restructuring of the abatement.

For the Pet Control, I don't really have that much insight into the situation.

Re: Fulop proposes new NJ Turnpike extension to ease Holland Tunnel traffic now cutting through Down
#23

Just can't stay away


I think a great starting point would be to eliminate the right turns from Erie 24/7, funnel the traffic down to Marin. But in concert they need to add a light at 9th and Marin at the very least, probably someplace further down Marin as well. It would also be helpful if they closed 9th in between Marin and Manilla during rush hour like they used to (anyone know why the stopped?). Since they opened it up that intersection has become much worse. I think that all of these solutions would force drivers to be delayed enough that they would think twice about going through Downtown.

So can you explain to me the process of revaluing my condo? Will they bring someone in to my home and look through it? I mean that kind of increase is bonkers. How is that even legal? There would have to be some kind of appeal process. Lets say I move to one of those new fangled will my reevaluation also increase? When I was looking around JC about 6-7 years ago places that were very similar to mine but recently renovated had property tax or Pilots that were 3x my taxes. I wasn't entirely sure what the reason for this was. But just sorta thought I'm getting a great deal.

Can someone explain to me how my property will be effected in a reevaluation? I'm debating moving? Not because of property taxes, but if I can get out before and the reval may effect my bottom line perhaps its time to consider it. Also what is the time frame for something like this? Does it happen in one year or does it happen over many years with the option for people to appeal etc etc.

Didn't another developer request some type of abatement adjustment last year with the same sort of reasoning? I want to say the people a Canco?

What happens if this doesn't survive? Would the developer close up shop walk away. Then the banks would own it, they would look to sell it to a new developer who would go to city council and request the same kind of deal for finishing the project. It's almost like a can't loose. Especially if the new developer is the old developer.

Anyways that building looks to be pretty sweet property especially if your on the east facing side.

The court need to be flattened there were dips in the pavement it wasn't something you noticed until you actually ran around on the court. If they are doing the rest of the park they shouldn't leave any stone unturned.

Actually when I was walking by yesterday I was wondering if they are going to redo the sidewalks along the perimeter of the park. They are in bad shape and need to be redone.
