N.J. A.G. looking into timesheet issue at Jersey City rec department: sources

By Terrence T. McDonald tmcdonald@jjournal.com
The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY — Officials with the state attorney general's office arrived at Jersey City's recreation department headquarters on Friday to interview city workers about accusations of fraudulent pay records, sources told The Jersey Journal.

The Jersey Journal wrote about the allegations last month, citing sources saying a mid-level recreation official adjusted payroll records so the official's friends and family could get paid for work they did not perform.

JERSEY CITY -- It took only a few hours for a jury to deliver a guilty verdict for the 21-year-old charged with killing a man in broad daylight last year.

Dashawn Mixson faces up to life in prison for the March 28 fatal shooting of 19-year-old Dajour Riley on Union Street.

Nearby surveillance captured the 11:45 a.m. shooting. Riley's girlfriend, who was four months pregnant at the time, testified the two were leaving a doctor's office when a gunmen shot at Riley as he was in the front seat of his vehicle.

Re: Am I allowed to put up fliers informing neighbors about a felon who has moved into the neighborh

It sounds as if the OP has a couple of issues ongoing here - the ex-felon tenant, the new landlord, a gentrifying neighborhood that he is a long-time resident of, etc.

For all - tenants, you do have rights - the right to habitability being a key right that you can defend and protect. And an ex-felon has a right to habitability, too, dear neighbors.

In fact, the felon may be partially protected by these HUD guidelines (not a law - guidelines) which were advised in 2016.

And like Caj brought up, the landlord had no responsibility to let anyone know a felon was moving in - he owns the property - he can basically do as he pleases within the framework of applicable law.

Anyone who is renting needs to be informed. This is a great place to start:

Tenants Rights in NJ

Also, if your landlord is using said felon to create an environment where you "have" to move, well, that's pretty shady, but not unheard of. See more here and a good article here.

Finally, the city has an office for tenant/landlord resources here.

Good luck, Monmouth. I hope this gets worked out for you, but do keep a cool head about you.

This. You want to be so far off this guy's radar that he doesn't even recognize you live in the same building. I lived with a former felon in an apartment building. We found out when her parole officers visited. She wasn't very stable, and upon reflection, we should have just avoided her and her guests. We complained to the landlord (a lot) which pissed off the landlord and she obviously found out the source of all the complaints. It really turned out badly for everyone - we ended up moving from an awesome apartment because of her. Do you even know the relationship between the guy and the landlord? If you want to alert the landlord, do it anonymously.

Absolutely don't post the flyers - that's grounds for harassment. You'll be branded a snitch and that's worse than being a felon. Your camera is a good idea. Just move on with your life and keep your doors locked. You live in a big city - there are criminals everywhere.

This is the best advice ever - https://youtu.be/5Etm-H1FkUE

Good for him and his wife - they work hard and deserve the fruits of their labor. Given that the family has a stalker, however, I wonder why RJC would choose to disclose the location of his second home. Regardless of the writer's motivations, it seems pretty short sighted. The man deserves his privacy and safety.

Bill would allow towns to delay revaluations to curb 'fiscal shock'

Jersey City lawmakers in the state Legislature want to halt implementation of this year's property revaluation until 2019, citing the "fiscal shock" faced by property owners anticipating huge tax hikes.

The bill, (S-2566), would allow municipalities who did not apply reval results to tax bills before April 1 to postpone doing so until Jan. 1, 2019. The delay would allow for towns to provide "revaluation relief abatements" or "mitigate fiscal shock" from steep tax hikes. The bill was introduced last week.

Sports Betting Coming to NJ

Home away from home


By Brent Johnson and Jonathan D. Salant
NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

WASHINGTON -- New Jersey won its long battle for sports betting Monday when the U.S. Supreme Court threw out a federal ban that has lasted for more than a quarter century.

"The legalization of sports gambling requires an important policy choice, but the choice is not ours to make," Justice Samuel Alito, a New Jersey native, said in the opinion of the court. "Congress can regulate sports gambling directly, but if it elects not to do so, each State is free to act on its own."

Gov. Phil Murphy, who replaced Gov. Chris Christie as the lead plaintiff when he became governor in January, welcomed the ruling.

"I am thrilled to see the Supreme Court finally side with New Jersey and strike down the arbitrary ban on sports betting imposed by Congress decades ago," Murphy said. "I look forward to working with the legislature to enact a law authorizing and regulating sports betting in the very near future."

Re: Okay, so who here thinks the Katyn monument needs to go?

Home away from home


By John Heinis/Hudson County View

Jersey City has reached a “resolution” that will keep the Katyn memorial in “an extremely prominent location” just three days after a federal lawsuit was filed to keep the statue at Exchange Place, according to Mayor Steven Fulop. '

“I met w/Eric Lubaczewski + senior officials from the Polish Govt + we have a resolution as a win-win. The goal was one that respects/cares/keeps the monument in an extremely prominent location to honor sacrifices while also giving #JerseyCity a chance to re-purpose our waterfront,” Fulop tweeted about an hour ago.

While the mayor did not provide any further details on social media, an earlier tweet from Consul General of the Republic of Poland in New York Maciej Golubiewski provided a little more clarity on the matter.

“There is an agreement with @StevenFulop. The monument will be on the waterfront 60 meters from the place where it is now. Thank you Erykowi Lubaczewskiemu,” he wrote in Polish.

Lubaczewski, the man being credited by both sides for brokering the deal, is the executive director of the Polish American Chamber of Commerce.

Yesterday, Fulop released an artist’s rendering of the new vision for Exchange Place: a children’s playground, a spray park, green space and an area for a stage area to accommodate live performances.

JERSEY CITY — Plans to relocate a memorial commemorating the massacre of tens of thousands of Polish officers by the Soviet Union in 1940 is facing opposition here in Jersey City and from the Polish Consulate.

The Katyn memorial, a 34-foot-tall monument depicting a bound-and-gagged soldier impaled in the back by a bayoneted rifle, has been a fixture at Exchange Place since 1991. The city plans to put it in storage during a planned transformation of the Exchange Place plaza into a public park, and the statue may not return to its current location.

Suspicious! This poor man was knifed to death in front of the house he lived in for 40 years at 8 am on a Sunday in front of people going to church. Where the hell is Fulop? He is so quick to send letters threatening fines to people who dont paint their garage doors while a retired Jersey City teacher is cut down in the streets. This is disgusting.

If the teachers strike and she goes to either Dickinson, Ferris, Lincoln or Snyder I would let her stay home that day. If she goes to Liberty or McNair she should be fine.

I was a student during the last strike the schools won't be able to hire enough substitutes to control the kids. All they will do is put all the students in Auditoriums, Gyms and Cafeterias and the kids will quickly realize they run the show until this strike is over.



It appears that may be happening:

(Excerpt From the JJ) ...Teachers at School 11 on Bergen Avenue in Journal Square are chanting similar refrains to their counterparts at McNair.

One teacher reported only seeing four substitutes enter the building. Some parents are frustrated about the strike.

"What can I tell you, it's honestly annoying," one woman said. "There's no teachers inside and I can't drop her off because I don't know who's here."
