In 2014, the city council voted a 99 year for one dollar a year for an electric charge station on 2nd Street. This deal outraged Councilman Yun, so he is trying to change the deal. At the last council caucus, Yun had the deal reduced to 20 years and he is still working on increasing the fee from one year a year. Just another give away from this administration.

Wow, you must have hunted for those images of Obama, it was not covered on the news the way the hate against Trump and Republicans is covered. It is daily, just like the witchhunt on Russia in these hearings. Let me repeat, how can you hold Trump responsible for John Podesta foolish act of changing his email password? That is how the emails got hacked.

The abated properties do pay school taxes on the land they own, so there is a small contribution to education.

However, the way the PILOT law is written, the total payment (land taxes + PILOT fees) is a fixed amount, so if land taxes increase, PILOT fees decrease.

It wouldn't be a large loss, but higher school taxes on the land would mean lower PILOT fees to the Jersey City municipality.

Thank you state guy, however, my point is an additional tax will not be paid by abatements. Land taxes do not go up as a rule, it is the improvements (buildings.) If a property is spot assessed, then land taxes would be affected. I am aware that land taxes are not abated but again but they are the smallest part of any tax bill. This city has divided into two sections - one who gets more taxes and the other who is tax protected.

But, meanwhile, most of those abated taxpayers against whom you often rail are paying higher taxes than most of the DTJC homeowners. Ain't that something?! Of course, not a peep from you about that.


That is not true, you can always find some building that is paying high taxes, I can. There is a row house on Montgomery St, 2 family that is paying $43,000 in taxes and another one on Barrow St, paying $33,000 in taxes. These homes are on Van Vorst Park. They are not typical, just like it is not typical for tax abated properties to pay more. Actually, according to the Tax Assessor of JC, he said condos in JC actually pays more. He was referring to non abated or expired condos that had tax abatements. The point being, those abated properties will not have their taxes increased, something you are trying to deflect.

Amazing... your ignorance knows no bounds. Do you even REALIZE that saying a dominatrix should not be able to be a police officer (because she role plays as a dominant - and maybe also sadistic - person) is like saying that an actor that plays a sadist in a movie should be banned from ever being a police officer? It's ROLE PLAYING. It's not necessarily their public persona. And, seriously, the government needs to stay out of people's bedrooms and their sexual preferences. What happens between two (or, more) consenting adults, in their own privacy, is none of the government's business. Nor yours, by the way.


Some people who become sheriffs/police officers want to serve the community, but others want to control it, perhaps punish it. I think we have all seen officers who have behaved as though they are judge, jury and executioner. They have that dominatrix personality. I do not want that person with a gun with the legal authority to stop someone.

To go after O'Reilly never made sense, he was the tax assessor for JC before he became the business administrator. He understood JC properties better than any outside firm. Fulop wanted a scape goat in order to cancel the revaluation and decided O'Reilly would fix the bill.

The city's budget has been introduced but not adopted. It normally awaits the payment of federal funds in the budget. If the city lose $9 million that is close to a $2.00 tax increase to replace those funds for being a sancutary city.

I could never figure out why this investigation happened in the first place. It was reported by Hillary Clinton's campaign manager, John Podesta, that he changed his password which lead to his hacked emails. It is a stretched to say Trump had anything to do was Podesta changing his password. Do liberals dispised Trump? Yes, but it is silly to think he had something to do with this. Comey's testimony actually indicts Loretta Lynch and the investigation with Hillary Clinton.

Re: Local Control of Schools

I remember when the schools were under local control. It was when the mayors placed their political friends. Contracts were also given to their political friends. It was the reason the state came here in the first place. To be fair some mayors left the board of education alone. But you only need one mayor to destroy its independence.

Water Contract - Renewal
#22
Home away from home
Home away from home


My letter online on the water contract.

Jersey City should resume control of water utility

With the expiration of the water contract, the city must take back the control of this asset. We do not need a third party running our water system. The system was privatized under former Mayor Schundler so he would have cash cow for his budget. Succeeding mayors used this as a cash cow for their budgets too.

Jersey City ratepayers have been paying for the infrastructure of the water system with bonds through taxes, so why should a third party receive a cut of the profits?

Former MUA Director Dan Becht said in 2014 that the MUA is collecting more money from its customers and the ratepayers should share too. Instead, the city council under the direction Mayor Fulop took $30 plus million surplus payable over 12 years while our rates continue to increase.

There is hypocrisy for the city to say we need affordable housing, then in December of every year, put properties in lien when ratepayers cannot pay their water bills. The people on this water/tax lien list are usually the small homeowners. This administration is sending the message that homeowners are less important than affordable housing renters.
Since there will be an election in November for City Council, I suggest the next mayor/council make the decision on the water contract.

It is time to cut spending which has increased nearly $90 million since the former administration left office and stop using water as a backdoor tax.

Re: 2017 Reval ~ Property Inspections

After Hoboken did their revaluation in 2012 or 2013, not sure of the year, their ratable base went to $11 billion. Which means they were paying more to the county than Jersey City. Jersey City ratable base was not quite $6 billion then. Dolomiti and Brewster want to deny the fact that your ratable based or tax abatements which are not ratables, have nothing to do with the taxes you pay. Tax abatements hurt the average homeowner because it hides the ratable base and cause the tax base to increase. It is also the reason Secaucus in the late 1990s took JC to court. Secaucus at the time paid the second highest amount to the county, which is a lot for a town of 12,000 citizens then. It is now 16,000. Secaucus did not give out tax abatements. The result of this lawsuit it the reason we now give an extra 5% to the county on tax abatements. Let me clear up some facts, I am familiar with this lawsuit since I spoke to the mayor of Secaucus on this matter several times. The tax abatement we give is 100% to the city and an extra 5% goes to the county. It is not 95% to the city and 5% to the county.

The revaluation of ratable properties has NOTHING to do with abatements. It's about fairness between taxpayers on those ratable properties. You once again blow smoke to obscure the issues, and pointedly ignore Dolomiti's request for the slightest bit of compassion for the people who have overpaid while you and others underpaid.

And don't start with that same stupid bullshit "I paid the taxes I was billed". You didn't. You stated that you appealed them 5 times in a row, pleading that you had no walls. But it doesn't seem that you ever got reassessed after completing the renovation, like you should have. Did you? So you paid taxes for another 20 odd years as if your fabulous brownstone were gutted out. Nicely done.


You are wrong. I suggest you ask Duda who is now doing the assessment. He will tell you all properties are assessed but only regular properties will be added to the ratable base. Tax abatement will be excluded. The ratable base will change from $6.2 to 26 billion, tax abatements will not be added to this formula. I actually asked him but I did not include comments in my video due to the 30 minute time for Comcast. Actually Fulop mentioned this several years ago at a caucus meeting. He said several tax abatement expired which caused the ratable base to increase. When Schundler was mayor the ratable base was $5.1 after tax appeals, it is now $6.2 billion. The higher the ratable base the lower the tax rate or in JC case it will hide the spending. Healy had a $5.7 billion ratable base.

Don't change the subject.

Are you happy that one person underpays their taxes for years, knowing full well that means someone else is overpaying their taxes?

Should we feel sorry for someone whose taxes are going up, because the value of their home increased from $150k to $1.5 million?

Did delaying the reval make that better or worse?



Did I give the assessment to individual property owners? Did I stop the revaluation or did the mayor stop the revaluation? My attendance at meetings has nothing to do with the revaluation starting for stopping. I know you will like to link the two but your comments have no merit.

The letters I wrote had to do with these subjects:
1. City bonding for $128 million for fiscal year adjustment bonds when the city change the calendar to a fiscal year, by the way, the city returned to the original calendar year in 2012. They should have bonded for $30 million, instead the city bonded for $128 million. We are still paying off those bonds.
2. Schundler continued the practice of bonding for operating expense.
3. Schundler privatized the water, rates went up.
4. Several administrations reduced the tax abatement agreements in favor of the developer.
5. The city giving out tax abatements on prime property
6. The city giving non-bidding contracts to their friends
7. The city raising fees and water rates while pretending they are stabilizing taxes.
8. The city is giving away public land.
9. The city does not enforce their agreements with hiring local residents
10. The city creating Redevelopment zones in order to bypass local zoning.
11. The city selling parking lots and then later renting parking for municipal employees.
12. I can go on but this has nothing to do with me stopping the revaluation process.

How did your article prove I am lying, Dolomiti? Your article states the fact the Schundler had a bunk lien sale. Where did these homes come from? No one walks away from their homes so the city can sell them in a lien sale. People do not choose to give up their property to a lien buyer. This lien sale happened several years after the revaluation because homeowners were unable to pay the taxes.
There was a reason people marched as a protest. They had tax bills they were unable to pay. McDonald from the JJ had the 1988 revaluation march in the papers recently.

brewster, I am not a mayor or councilperson in JC. Neither am I a state offical that has allowed JC to avoid a revaluation once the figures go below 15% of assessment. Attacking me for the fault of government makes no sense. I am stating what happened in 1988. Hopefully, this reval will go better, however, I still believe no revaluation will be fair as long as JC gives out tax abatements because those properties are not affected while the abatement exists.
