Re: Group Urges BOE to Fully Fund Schools

A couple of years ago, the late Councilman Yun invited me to his club where he showed me the city's bonds schedule. He was delighted the bonds would be paid off soon and concluded the tax rate would drop. I knew that would not happened, that the city would keep refinancing bonds. In fact, JC bonds have been refinanced so many times it has lost its tax exempted status. Tax exempt status only applies when bonds builds something. We are building nothing. What the city should do is make this information available for the public.

No, you don't run a city that is short on cash to the point that you refinance your bonds that has one to 6 years left. Once those bonds are paid off, you have more money available. That is poor management and Fulop has been in office for quite some time so if there is a shortage of cash, he can only point to himself.

The city should tell the public before this $72 million infuse of money what ticket prices will cost. Yes, the Loews need money, but I still remember the city telling the county not to give the Loews money to fix major problems in the Loews. The Loews lost $10 milion to correct major problems.

So many people are moving to Florida, they cannot find housing. Florida also expects their unemployment to drop to 3%. This is what happens when the economy is open. Politicians expect people to act alike adults to protect their health without government giving mandates.

Part of the reason why people are leaving, red states are open. This is a hatred for Gov. DeSantis of Florida by blue states. His state is open and the economy is flourishing. South Dakota never closed, never required a face mask. The governor said she trust business owners and the general public to protect themselves. Even though South Dakota is a cold place compared to Florida, their economy also boomed.

This unfortunately is not unusual, a friend told me about a fire he had, not realizing there was a pizza box in his oven by one of his kids, unknown to hm. Eventually, he was able to put out the fire but he first called 911 and no one picked up.

The small homeowner is on the hook for the affordable housing's taxes, it will not pay school taxes and county taxes except an extra 5%. All affordable housing is nothing but a transfer of taxes to the small homeowner. 5,000 were in tax lien in December 2020.

At current interest rates, refinancing bonds is smart.


No, it is not, those bonds were expiring in two to seven years. You don't refinance your mortgage if you have five years on your loan, you are paying more in the long run even if the interest rate is low.

Several months ago, the city refinanced bonds that were do to expire in 2022 to 2027, because it did not have the funds to pay them off. The city should give an account to property owners on all debt.

This is the same group that want affordable housing which pays not a penny to the school system at all. They expect others to pay for affordable housing fair share of funding public schools.

JC property taxes is equivalent of being forced to pay for someone's else dinner bill in the restaurant. You did not eat the meal, but the restaurant owner gives you the bill anyway.


The Green part of the SF Direct Usage Zero Waste Solution is a by-product perk where each property pays only for what/how they discard.....so there is no one paying for someone else's dinner.

San Francisco Zero Waste program Incentivizes folks to Re-Cycle & reduce Solid Waste, which is a good thing.

https://www.epa.gov/transforming-waste ... -case-study-san-francisco


Then you would have to change JC's rent control ordinance. The ordinance does not allow tax increases but increases based on the Consumer Price Index, so if water or taxes increase, the tenants cannot have an increase. So, right now if school taxes go up, tenants do not pay, the landlord goes to tax court to appeal and they get a reduction. So the one bedroom condo owner is paying the taxes of a 10 unit family building under rent control. This is similar to Social Security increases.

There is logic to this:

JC has an issue with building over-stuffed with people. Two buildings within blocks of me were examples. One had 60 people living in a Bayonne Box style 2 family. The landlord was charging each about $600 a month for enough space for a mattress (tenants were all from India). The place got busted by the fire department after they went in the building due to a small fire.

Number of people in a building directly affects the water consumption and the amount of trash produced. So basing it on water consumption would help hit places like I described above.

NJ is shipping trash to all the way PA and VA. Garbage disposal costs are really out of control here in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions.

This is an immigration issue but JC is a welcoming city so you cannot address this problem without being called a racist. In the late 1990s, there was a raid on Grand St with 50 Chinese men in a home using a bucket for a bathroom. They took turns sleeping in bunk beds. It was stated, these men worked in the Chinese restaurants in NYC.

Re: Affordable Housing rents are being increased during the pandemic.

It is the reason why landlords in the 1980s and 1990s converted their multi-family buildings into condo. It was costing them money to hire accountants and lawyers to appeal in tax court. Even when the landlords decided not to convert because of some attachment to long term tenants, their children did because it becomes expensive.

Actually that happened, MDM, pushed by Solomon. While it is temporary due to covid, homes not owner occupied (1 to 4) are now under rent control. What people do not realize, the rent leveling board determines increases which is based on the Consumer Price Index, not the increase of taxes. So taxes cannot be passed along. I saw this recently in 2019, when I went to tax court with a friend who asked me to video his case. As I was waiting, a multi-family building went down in assessment just because it was under rent control and the owner cannot pass along any tax increase.

So have taxes increased in the 4th quarter. Why are tenants more special than the homeowners? Over 5,000 names are on the tax lien list published on Dec. 2, 2020.
