Home away from home


(Excerpt from Rev. Santora Column - NJ.com)

"Hannah Peterson, spokeswoman for Jersey City, confirmed what the Archdiocese of Newark has told me: The city will orchestrate the designation of a developer to buy the property and put market-rate housing inside the church's shell while also relocating the shelter and providing an undetermined number of transitional housing units.

"The overall plan for this area is to keep the St. Lucy's shelter in the vicinity of its current location and rehab the church for a residential project that would subsidize a state-of-the-art shelter, as well as new affordable/transitional housing in that area," Peterson said."

Snoop Dogg isn't the only music sensation that's spending his Fourth of July in Jersey City.

World renowned R&B singer Akon was pictured with his old friend, Mario Costa, owner of Ringside Lounge, located at 475 Tonnele Ave.

Akon – whose legal name is Aliaume Damala Badara Akon Thiam -- has kept ties with the city since he attended Dickinson High School on Palisade Avenue.

The hip-hop star will be on the #50STAR stage with Snoop around 8:30 p.m. – located at the foot of Montgomery Street at Exchange Place.

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

JERSEY CITY — The question of whether Jersey City's Katyn monument is moved may soon be in the hands of voters.

A group opposed to moving the statue from its Exchange Place home delivered a petition to City Clerk Robert Byrne on Tuesday seeking to overturn a June 13 ordinance that authorized moving the monument one block south. The petition has over 10,000 signatures, the group said.

N.J. Budget: 5 Things you Need to Know

5. School funding will be revamped.

Murphy said he will sign a bill to overhaul the state's school funding formula. Money will be shifted over seven years from districts considered overfunded under the school funding formula to underfunded districts.

No district will gain or lose more than $3.5 million next year.

More about funding overhaul

"...Jersey City, which stands to lose the most funding, is getting a special reprieve from the state. Under a separate bill, the city could levy a 1 percent payroll tax, with the school district as the sole recipient."

What Will Be Closed in HC if the State Shuts Down

By Ron Zeitlinger
The Jersey Journal

If state lawmakers and Gov. Phil Murphy can't come to an agreement on a new state budget by midnight Saturday, you'll still be able to play the lottery, but you won't be going to Liberty State Park.

The looming shutdown would keep all non-essential state workers home, but since the revenue from the lottery is deemed essential the games will go on. But Liberty State Park on the Jersey City waterfront, the state's most visited park, would be closed.

Come Monday, the most noticeable closure would be the Motor Vehicle Commission offices and vehicle inspection stations in Hudson County. Unemployment services will be open, but the One Stop Career Center will be closed.

JERSEY CITY -- Laurie Galvin's Dodge minivan is more than just a vehicle she uses to drive to and from work.

"That's my legs," she said. "It's the only way I can get around."

Galvin woke up early Sunday morning for church and found the van she's owned since 2002 was stolen right out of her driveway on Gautier Avenue. Police have still not recovered the van.

The 68-year-old woman, who works in the purchasing department at City Hall, said she was in an accident when she was in her 20s and suffered an injury to her spinal cord.

Plastic bag bans have now been adopted by Jersey City's and Hoboken's councils, just as New Jersey prepares to stop municipalities from enacting local bans.

Both measures, which passed with unanimous support, would largely require retailers to provide only reusable and/or recyclable paper bags to customers. There are exemptions, including bags to wrap newspapers, dry cleaning items, frozen foods, meat and fish.

Mega-landlord intimidating tenants who reported horrible conditions, group says

By Caitlin Mota
The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY – Local religious leaders say a mega-landlord has installed cameras directly in front of some tenants' doors, one month after they spoke out about being treated unfairly.

The new cameras and a proposed security system that required tenants in some buildings provide photos of their driver's licenses are the newest forms of intimidation landlord Joseph Ehrman uses, Jersey City Together said during a June 18 rally.

Ehrman, described by the group as a "predatory landlord," owns multiple management companies in Jersey City, including Sixth Boro, Optimum Property Management and Golden Apple.

JERSEY CITY — In the aftermath of the City Council's June 13 meeting that dragged on for nine hours, the nine-member body is considering a new limit on how long members of the public can speak on an issue.

Under a measure up for initial OK next week, members of the public would have a five-minute cap on their comments during public hearings for ordinances on second reading, hearings for which there is currently no limit. The cap would mirror an existing one on speakers during each meeting's general public comment portion.

Agreed - and they have parking if you're driving. To the OP - hold your nose and get your issue solved in person. It's the NJDMV - you don't want to deal with the larger issue if your docs expire or become invalid. Good luck and keep us updated!

Hearing on Jersey City's Katyn memorial pushes council meeting into wee hours

So things start to get loopy at Jersey City Council meetings once they go beyond midnight.

At the council's Wednesday night session, the body's nine members sat for a near record nine-hour session, just over six hours of that on a single topic: the planned relocation of the Exchange Place monument to the 1940 Katyn massacre.

Snoop Dogg to headline Jersey City Fourth of July celebration
Jun 15, 2018


JERSEY CITY – The Fourth of July celebrations being held in the Exchange Place area of Jersey City will feature rapper Snoop Dogg.

Snoop Dogg is also a singer, songwriter, record producer, television personality, and actor, who has sold more 23 million albums in the United States and 35 million albums worldwide.

He will headline Jersey City’s fifth annual July 4th festival on the Hudson Waterfront to celebrate Independence Day. The carnival-style spectacle will take place at the Hudson River Waterfront and the adjoining area surrounding Harborside, both of which have light rail stops for easy commutes from nearby towns.

The all-day music, food, technology and entertainment experience boasts views of the New York City skyline, and will become the scene of the state’s largest fireworks show.

The celebration will begin at noon with a full-scale carnival, continuous entertainment, several beer gardens, and an elite conglomerate of food trucks. The show will culminate with the world-renowned fireworks company Grucci lighting up the skyline from multiple barges on the Hudson River.

KEARNY -- Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop is accused of shoving a cop at Kearny High School Tuesday night during the Hudson County Democratic Organization election, but police say he won't be charged.

Kearny Mayor Al Santos said the incident occurred outside a voting booth in a room attached to the high school's cafeteria but Fulop has denied making contact with a police officer and called Santos' allegations "baseless" and "clearly just politics."

Apologize to the Kearny cop you shoved, Santos says to JC Mayor Fulop

13 JUNE 2018 BY KEVIN CANESSA | JOURNALIST & WEBMASTER

Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop owes the rookie Kearny police officer he shoved last night an apology, at the very least, Kearny Mayor Alberto G. Santos told The Observer earlier today.

This all stems from an incident Santos says occurred Tuesday night, June 12, at Kearny High School, at a contentious meeting of the Democratic County Committee to pick the party’s chairperson for the next term.

Santos says Fulop, an ally of Union City Mayor Brian Stack who was running for the top seat — Stack lost to County Executive Tom DeGise’s daughter, Amy DeGise — was trying to make his way into a room that had a voting machine in it for committee members to vote for either DeGise or Stack.

Thing is, only poll workers and those voting are allowed in that room, according to the bylaws of the Hudson County Democratic Organization.

When the Kearny police officer assigned to a door to that room wouldn’t let the Jersey City CEO in, that’s when Fulop reportedly shoved the cop to try to gain access.
