Back to reality, of NJ’s 422 high schools, Snyder ranks 322, Dickinson 285, Ferris 345, and Lincoln 339.

Magnet schools should be ranked with other magnet schools, not to those who accept all. What are the rankings for JC’s regular schools?

Based on prior constitutional mandates and court decisions, the BOE is correct.

And it was state law that a) imposed a property tax cap and b) required all PILOT payments to be made to municipalities. So don't blame the district for underfunding.


Towns can ask for cap rises over 2%, and no city (including JC) was forced to give PILOTS at all, especially in non distressed areas like the JC waterfront.

JC schools have been playing with house money for decades, and given that it is Jersey City we can only imagine the graft and waste. Now that JC taxpayers will have more skin in the game, will they demand reform and transparency?

Yvonne, the result is a 2% increase in JC taxes. Considering how low JC taxes are compared to the NJ average your takeaway should be ‘how lucky JC taxpayers have been for decades’.

To be clear, the 100-200% tax increase refers to the portion of taxes that support schools, not your overall real estate tax, no? It’s so large, since JC homeowners currently pay such a tiny amount to fund JC schoolchildren.

We can agree on your last thought. At least the reval woke up some JC residents to wasteful school spending.

My point here is that as long as JC has been severely overfunded and undertaxed JC residents didn’t care about school funding, and BOE inefficient and wasteful spending. Now that’s changing we’ll see JC taxpayers sing a different tune.

Bullshit? Dad pays $32,000 per year in property taxes despite not having a child in school since 1978. And school cost in his town is less than $18,000/year.

JC residents pay 17% of the $23,000 cost. Pretty good deal. Fulop has been squealing about JC paying its fair share, to the point of getting the payroll tax rather than take care of its own children.

Plenty of people pay property taxes enough to cover education costs in the suburbs. As JC pays only 17% of educating its own children (and illegal kids) the impact is tiny. As JC will begin paying its fair share expect the tone to change.

Add in ESL, lunch, IEP’s, and I’m sure the average illegal kids costs well over $25,000/per student per year. Let’s say two kids-are their parents paying $50,000 a year in taxes?

Hell no.

The story guesses almost 12% of K-12 students are here illegally. If that’s the avg, then JC must be higher. Yet Fulop with his sanctuary city crap encourages illegals to come here. Imagine how much it costs the BOE and NJ taxpayers who carry JC’s load?

Same thing going on with the VA Governor, most people don't give a crap about something tasteless a guy did 35 years ago, but the loudest and most "virtue demanding" are hounding him out of office.


Somehow our Spartacus has ignored the NJ gal in the Alvarez mess, (after attacking Judge Kavanaugh), but has gone after the VA folks. Go figure.

Dude, you are making a fool out of yourself: those two specific examples (Mazda CX5 and Acura RDX) are VERY short by SUV standards. In fact, they are both shorter than the average mid size sedan, certainly shorter than a Ford Fusion.

I am not trying to argue or defend the ownership of SUVs (people can own whatever they choose!) but your stance just comes across as petty and misguided when your justifications are based on misconceptions.

You can keep spouting your crank, but it is nothing more than shaking your fist at the sky: you will accomplish nothing because your argument and logic are not based on facts, just feelings and misconceptions.


Maplewood? No overnight street parking in Maplewood.

Sorry, but if parking spaces are in short supply, as you suggest, a $15 a year residential permit does not help. Make the permit $1,500/year and surely demand will not exceed supply.


Punish local car owners while developers are getting zoning variances allowing them to provide less onsite parking, forcing more people to park on the street? That's ass backwards.

JC gives out zoning variances allowing builders to short parking in their new structures, then JC residents complain about lack of street parking.

A solution is available, don't give out those types of variances.

Wrong. The $1,000 is for non residents to park in municipal lots. Residents get a car sticker, for free, allowing them to park on their own residential block. The non resident fees are directed to out of towners who commute via NJ Transit trains and need to park their cars somewhere.

Other than Front or Broad Streets there is no parking issue in Red Bank; like many suburban towns people complain if they have to walk a half block to a store or restaurant. Comparing JC parking to Red Bank parking is absurd.



Uuuuhhh yeah...and why is that? Put your thinking cap on. Like I mentioned before, compare the costs of acquiring a residential permit. If Jersey City charged what Red Bank does, it would not have the parking issues it has today.

Free or nearly free parking isn't really free if you spend a lot of time looking for a space or are sitting in traffic, taboot. That is, if you consciously valie your time, like I do.


By the way, Red Bank offers residents FREE on street parking on their own block, they just have to show their license and registration to verify. FREE is quite a bit lower than JC resident parking costs.
