JC couldn't set itself up to do that without state ok.

I can't imagine the Turnpike Authority agreeing to this. Maybe Fulop should ask for a little Holland Tunnel 'traffic study' by local police?

Won't this shift the Park n Ride exit vehicular traffic to Phillips/Jersey Ave instead of Communipaw/Johnston/Pacific/Grand, as well as having more take LSP exit to Burma/Phillips directly to Jersey? It'll obviously mean a traffic light at the Phillips/Johnston corner, but that's been needed anyway.

Fulop wants easy access from downtown to the LSC expansion project, it's a done deal I'd say.

Lo and behold, tomorrow the City Council will propose the Jersey Avenue auto bridge, adding $3 million of city money to the $10 million of state money already allocated.

The main reason Gov Christie killed the tunnel is simple. NJ would have solely responsible to pay for the inevitable multi billion dollar cost overruns. NY, the Feds, the PA would not be responsible for a penny. It was a suckers deal, and he was right to flush it. The most recent proposal is much more equitable, proving his point.

It's been quiet for a while, but wasn't there funding to build a bridge to connect Jersey Ave to LSP?
It won't take much to add a lane to support the tech village/hotel LSC project from the LSC turnpike exit. The VVP residents are already pissed at Fulop over the reval so he doesn't have to worry about ticking off the NIMBY''S.

If you don't have a mortgage but your taxes went up a lot t means you have a property that has also has greatly increased equity. Home equity line of credit, problem solved.

17% is the important number here, which is how much JC funds its own schools.

I can't think of a single city or town in Somerset County that encourages illegal aliens like Fulop does via the sanctuary city, whose children cost a ton to educate. ESL, IEP's,
meals-it all adds up.

What amazes me is that in a number of these suburban towns homeowners are living pretty nice lives in individual homes and payimg taxes in the same amount in some cases as people in JC who are crammed into condos and living with some horrible quality of life situations.

Doesn't make sense.


That's not entirely accurate. The new estimated rate in JC is 1.62%, which is one of the lowest in the state. The rest of the state pays between 2.5-3% (I forget the exact average number, but it's well above 2%, so don't quote me)

Even post reval, JC is getting quite a deal on the backs of the rest of the state.


Why do people continually point to tax rates as a measuring stick? Obviously an area with high property values will have a lower tax rate. An area with a high tax rate will lower property values. See how that works? You are also citing a tax rate while property values are at an all time high in Jc. The other cities you compare the rate to have also not just had a reval meaning their tax rate will be inflated since it would not be based on it's current market value. The point is taxes in JC are no great bargain.


How can they not be considered a bargain? JC gets the better part of half a billion dollars from the backs of other taxpayers to pay for most of its school costs.

And the better part of half a billion dollars comes from other NJ taxpayers, year after year.

The NYTimes reported a week or so ago that the NJ average is 2.4%, so JC's rate would need to rise about 50% to meet the average. JC taxpayers are getting a bargain.

JC won't have a mass school shooting because the perp knows they'd be taken out by students in a Chilltown second.

Of course the corporations who pay all the taxes will keep the bulk of the returns. And not only pay higher wages, pay bonuses, and increase 401k matches-but invest in expansion and increase dividends. This ain't Venezuela.

Just think of it this way-they're not getting the lions share, but they're getting more than Obama delivered. MAGA!

I guess all the workers who received bonuses that their CEO's said came from tax reform didn't happen.

But they did. Oopsie.

Tony, Obama was blaming Bush right up to his last day in office. His 'signature' healthcare program didn't get a single Republican-Democrats put exactly what tbey wanted in it (even if it had to be passed to know what was in it). So they own the disaster it's turned out to be. "Like your plan and doctor"?

As far as job creation and tax relief under our President spend a minute and do some research-many CEOs credit Trump and his policies for the surge-including the manufacturing jobs Obama said would never return. Are you telling me the new jobs in the steel industry had anything to do with Obama?


JCRider, yes you may not be in the 80% getting tax relief-but with that real estate tax you're paying obviously you own a valuable home. SALT deductions favored high tax states with bloated spending-hopefully having this go away will cause second thoughts about wasteful spending. You're just going to have to pay your fair share, like Murphy is asking the well to do in NJ.

Re: Jersey City Council to introduce $587 million budget with zero tax increase

Any NJ who pays sales tax, or takes Uber, or who uses or rents with Airbnb . . . But at least you're all understanding who pays for $500 million a year of JC school costs.

And again, the 3% who pay 2/3 of NJ income taxes don't live in Abbot Districts mostly. And 1/3 of JC, and other towns like Elizabeth, are UEZ zoned-where the sales tax is halved, reducing NJ tax coffers!

And NJ.com noted today that the top 3% earners pay an incredible 2/3 of NJ income taxes! Wanna take a guess where those people live? Not Newark, JC, Camden, or Paterson.

JC pays for 17%. Newark 11%. East Orange 9%.

Millburn, Mendham, Livingston, Kinnelon all cover 86%. Princeton, 79%. Bernards, 74%.

NJ is Robin Hood, taking from the rich and funding schools like JC that overspend and underdeliver. Of course the suburbs fund it, although the check gets washed through Trenton.

BS. All if the companies hiring are stating it's because of optimism and regulations that encourage growth.

As far as healthcare-what happened to Obama and his $2,500 per family savings? Talk about shiny penny. Move out of the way, if you don't want to ride the train steamrolling towards America becoming great again!

Tony, you're unaware that 80% of taxpayers are keeping more of their money? Or that job growth is exploding, with black and Latino unemployment is at record lows? Wow, if that happened with a Democrat you'd be over the moon!

The ultra rich get more $ back because they pay more in, isn't that obvious? You can't count the 47% who pay no Federal income tax and complain they get nothing back from the nothing they put in, lol.
