No, perhaps Joe Biden should allow the XL Pipeline to be finished which will bring energy to the US. And Joe Biden should stop selling US energy to China from our reserves.

Just a reminder, natural gas was cheap under Trump, yes, he was a loudmouth but people could afford to heat their homes. We have hundreds of years of fossil fuels in the US and was energy independent under Trump.

People should buy the Jersey Journal, the 2022 Senior of the Year for Jersey City is Laverne Webb Washington by the County Executive and the Board of Commissioners. Different seniors are picked, the article notes that the winner in Secaucus was voted for so the rest must be picked by the County. It is in the July 23, 2022 edition.

What Civic Parent does not show is how much the average homeowner is paying that was transferred from affordable housing and rent control properties. The pictures on tax abatements changes because some do expire but it has always been 1/4 of properties were tax abated which pays no school taxes and that does not include rent control which is exempt from tax increases under the Consumer Price Index. Yet other Hudson County towns do allow taxes increases to be passed on to tenants. The bottom line is, if others pay their fair share of government, out taxes would be lowered.

Some years ago, the Jersey Journal had an article on this subject. Since the city receives federal funding, they cannot turn away non-citizens and non-residents. Besides the Biden administration made an announcement that non-citizens will get federal funded housing.https://www.theblaze.com/news/biden-illegal-immigrants-housing-aid

Affordable Housing is code for cheap housing that is excluded from taxes. It is a contract that pays the city a flat fee and no school taxes. Really, it is housing that illegal immigrants get first shot at, I did a lot of voter registration in the 1990s and 90% of affordable housing then had immigrants. It does not mean they are bad people, but people should know why their taxes go up.

I was there when politicians came to JC and asked citizens to vote for the income tax. They said it would replace property taxes. So, they lied. This was 1976. Too bad the internet was not around then, but the mayor and city council should hold them accountable for their promise of the past. I still remember one politician saying property tax for public schools is not fair.

The state is cutting back money it normally gives to Jersey City because "rich people" live here. The money the state gave Jersey City in the past was based on a high poverty rate. But mayors since the 1990 have been giving out abatements, basically robbing the school system of taxes.
JC has been building more affordable housing which pays nothing to the school sytem but brings in more school age children and the state has decided to cut back on state aid. Then the public school board members gave contracts to teachers which will give them six figure salaries with a BA down the road.
So, now the regular homeowners are required to make up the shortfall of the state, our local generous board members, and support the tax abatments that pay nothing and subsidize the education of affordable housing and rent control tenants.

Pity the poor tenants? Are you serious. JC always protect tenants. During covid, Solomon placed tenants under protection that still exists. They cannot have an increase if the home is not owner occupied. Then you have affordable housing, they do not pay school taxes. But they can vote for people who raise our taxes at the bord of ed.

I agree seniors do have a problem but this city and state do not care. After all, seniors do not make campagin contributions.

Re: Proposed School Budget Nears One Billion and Portends Big Tax Hike

Education does not justify putting liens on people's homes for education. A large part of school population are non-citizens, so we seized citizens' homes in order to pay for education. I voted for the income tax in 1976 because politicians promised that money would be used for public school education. They lied. The lottery and sales tax were also promised as a source of revenue.

This is a Democratic city, and we allow Gov. Murphy to get away with not funding the public school but his state budget is $50.6 billion, much higher than Chris Christie's budget of $34 billion and more millions went to our school system.

An article published by Terrance McDonald who formally worked for the Jersey Journal did an article on the teachers' contract. Teachers will be in the six figures based on a certain level with a BA. So, yes, they are paid well. My problem with this is the people who use public schools, many live in buildings that will not pass this increase on, according to ordinances by the city. So, if you vote for school board members, who pass these contracts, you should not be exempt from paying the bill.

I am looking at my tax bill now, "Estimated 2022 Tax Rate 1.8890, which means, we do not know. Until the 4th quarter is finalized, that rate could go up. There was no letter attached so the mayor is playing a game and we, the public, are stuck wondering.

Fulop used covid money for 2021 to reduce the overall budget. That was the reason for the slight decrease.

There was no letter attached to the estimated tax bill, rscott's claim the increase goes back to the 1st and 2nd quarters are opinion. Since the 4th quarter is not given to the public, everything is just a debate. The 4th quarter could be higher, just maybe the mayor would be mailed out after the November election to protect the Dems running for office against Republicans on the other side of the ballot.

This is an estimated bill, there is one more quarter for 2022, so the 4th quarter could even be higher. Shame on this administration for playing games. We should know the breakdown of the county, school, and municipal governments.

Their job is education, and they do a good job on this one aspect. Personally, it is those activists who will go to meetings to stop a building from being destroyed and also go to another meeting to say "separation of church and state" to apply for funds to restore it. It is total hypocrisy. I know people in Hoboken to were upset when the college received funds for the bridge on Kennedy Blvd. That bridge actually is saving students' lives so they don't run into the streets as many did when changing classes.

The floor of the grammar school is sinking in. It is in very rough shape, so you cannot compare it to the Apple Tree House. The grammar school always had a history of replacing falling bricks in the structure back in the 1980s. As the floor caves in, the bricks pop out.

The big box stores like Loews and Home Depot have tons of plants. In my opinion, the North Bergen Loews and Home Depot have better plants. I know that requires a car. But find someone with a car. It would be worth it.

With the while poles for bike lanes, yes, the city said at a meeting those white poles protect bikers from on-coming traffic and now these electric stations, there will be less on-street parking.

Here is the irony, Phil Murphy has been in office 4 years 4 months and his budget is 41% larger than Chris Christie's last budget but it was the Democratic Murphy who cut JC funding. Also, let's get real, affordable housing and rent control properties are exempt from rising school taxes. But I am sure there are plenty of families from rent control and affordable housing tenants that use the public schools. Just maybe, the rules should be change and allow them to pay into the school budget.

That station is needed, there are now thousands of people now located in that area who would daily that the PATH. There could be an express train from Marion that by-pass Journal Square so Journal Square passengers would not be more crowded.

After all, how many places reported on Hunter Biden? Just the New York Post, others called it all Russian disinformation, but now that there might be indictments, the New York Times is calling it out.

Plumbers will be very busy then, I remember a "free tree" the city gave out in the 1970s, that tree grew into my water lines. I had to call out the plumber numerous times when he finally told me the roots from the tree was causing the problem. I removed the tree, and the problem went away but that plumber made a lot of money from me.

Bayonne liens

Home away from home


The City of Bayonne had its tax lien advertisement. It is around 190 names. When JC had its tax lien it was 4,200 names. Yes, Bayonne is smaller but if equivalent in population, that would be around 800 names in lien. JC rent control which stops taxes being passed on to tenants and affordable housing which pays no additional taxes have pushed increasing taxes on the small homeowner to such a degree, they have a higher rate of default.
