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

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.

So who is going to pay for this rehab?


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.

When I am out in JC, I see tons of bikes in racks not being used and that will be for the electric car. There will be empty places not being used for electric cars while residents drive around the block always looking for parking.

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.

Re: The Mayor Says Jersey City Schools are Failing: Critics Disagree

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.

Re: Consultant to City: Pony Up For Tree Maintenance

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
#17
Home away from home
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.

Politicians came to JC in the mid-1970s to ask the public to vote on the income tax. They said this tax would pay for public schools. I believed them and voted for the income tax, now I pay an income tax and a growing school tax. The politicians lied to us.

Fulop gave a sweetheart deal at the expense of property owners
#21
Home away from home
Home away from home


During the pandemic, Councilman Solomon introduced an ordinance that was passed by the city council to temporarily place non-owner occupied 1 to 4 family homes under rent control. I repeatedly asked when will this ordinance expire because JC rent control laws unlike most towns, are under Consumer Price Index which means they cannot have a tax increase for tenants. The landlords receive a tax increase and they must go to Hudson County Tax to appeal where they win. I have personally witnessed this procedure at tax court where the administrator says, JC unlike other towns cannot pass on a tax increase to tenants. Since we are now faced with massive school increases as well as solid waste charges on our water bills, I have decided to so a search on the city website under rent control. There is a registration form for landlords to fill out for their 1 to 4 family homes non-owner occupied buildings. Last year, I have emailed Councilwoman Watterman and Business Administrator John Metro about this ordinance since it originally said it would expire. Now I know why I was ignored. Owner occupied 1 to 4 family homes will bear the brunt of the tax increase and the administrator kept quiet about this sweetheart deal for tenants. In the past rent control was only for 5 or more units.

The last articles written by Terrance McDonald of the Jersey Journal were the massive raises given by the school board to teachers, so essentially - they are liars. Salaries are the reason for tax increases. Taxes went up last year, but Fulop used covid funds in the budget to shelter the impact to protect his re-election. JC is accepting more affordable housing which pays nothing to the school system, I have always been against affordable housing because it puts more taxes on the small homeowner, there is nothing in the city or state charter that says, other people should pay for their taxes especially school taxes. Also, our rent control laws are not like most cities, there can be no tax pass alongs, since rent control is under the Consumer Price index, another group of residents will not feel the impact of this massive tax. It is time for JC to fix their rent control laws. It is also time for JC to sue to state since the sales tax and income tax were passed by state residents to pay for education and not have it on property.

During the 1970s, state senators visited JC and other towns to push for the income tax. They told us it would take place of property taxes. They lied. JC should sue. I voted for the income tax because I did not want it on property.

I don't know if it includes last year but I do know that rent control tenants and affordable housing cannot have a tax increase so this is strickly on the small property owners, which is wrong.

Re: Journal Square Community Association Calls on City Council to Conduct Hybrid Meetings

It was Council-President Watterman who reduced public speaking from 5 minutes to 3 minutes including ordinances which had numerous pages related to an ordinance. So, I don't expect her to add more time to the city council by having expanded meetings with a hybrid. However, since there is less parking downtown, this does make sense. You will spend more time finding a parking space than using your 3 minutes speaking.
