By Ron Zeitlinger | The Jersey Journal

The beleaguered Jersey City Board of Education has settled a lawsuit with its former superintendent for $398,250, according to the settlement agreement.

Marcia Lyles had sued the district last January, saying the school board and the teachers’ union impeded her ability to run the school district, defamed her and created a hostile work environment. Lyles was fired in early February 2019.

Surprise for New York Renters: No More Broker Fees

Regulators unexpectedly banned broker fees for renters, which in the city have long amounted to as much as 15 percent of the annual lease.

"...The new laws, aimed at protecting tenants and strengthening rent regulations, said that tenants could be charged no more than $20 in fees when applying for an apartment, including background and credit checks. The rent laws passed in June also capped security deposits at one-month’s rent, further diminishing the lump sum amount renters typically must pay before being given keys to an apartment."

The state is shutting down a troubled charter school with campuses in Newark and Jersey City, one of four schools that Newark’s schools chief had urged the state to close.

M.E.T.S. Charter School must cease operations after this school year due to persistent concerns about low academic achievement, chaotic classrooms, and high staff turnover, the state’s education commissioner said in a letter Monday that was obtained by Chalkbeat. The move leaves roughly 700 students to find new placements for the fall.

Re: House Inspector to avoid--John Estes, Regional Home Inspection

Home inspectors are not psychics. I have found that most of the home inspectors we've hired over the years do a good overview inspection of the home, but if you want to dig a little deeper (especially with the older stock in the area) you really do need to hire independent experts in plumbing and electrical. You learn these lessons when you buy your first house - especially your first old house. I think it's a little crappy to come on here and blame your home inspector - hope he comes on here (he's gotten good reviews by the way in past threads) and gives his side, too.

Five current and former public officials and political candidates – including Jersey City school board president and former state Assemblyman Jason O’Donnell – were charged Thursday with taking thousands of dollars in bribes in the form of campaign contributions in return for hiring an unnamed tax attorney for lucrative government legal work.

Envelopes and paper bags filled with cash and even a coffee cup stuffed with cash – were delivered to the defendants by the cooperating witness at restaurants, parking lots, a political fundraiser, and a campaign headquarters, according to Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal.

Jersey City joins Newark in suing de Blasio’s homeless relocation plan

By Nolan Hicks and Julia Marsh
December 17, 2019 | 6:31pm

Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop announced Tuesday his city is joining a federal lawsuit challenging a de Blasio administration program that pays for working-class homeless New Yorkers to move across the Hudson River.

Fulop made the announcement as New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio laid out a new $100 million a year effort to tackle the street homelessness in the five boroughs — one of the most visible symptoms of New York’s housing shortage.

“Meanwhile… we’re joining onto the lawsuit from Newark against NYC for pushing their homeless population to NJ cities (including JC without communicating anything or providing proper support,” Fulop wrote on Twitter, linking back to a live feed of de Blasio’s announcement. “That @NYCMayor plan is not solving the problem that is abdicating the responsibility.”

"A suspect involved in a prolonged firefight in Jersey City, N.J., that left six people dead, including one police officer, had published anti-Semitic and anti-police posts online and investigators believe the attack was motivated by those sentiments, a law enforcement official familiar with the case said on Wednesday."

@StevenFulop

Based on our initial investigation (which is ongoing) we now believe the active shooters targeted the location they attacked. Due to an excess of caution the community may see additional police resources in the days/weeks ahead. We have no indication there are any further threats

Of course you can - with an extra serving of phorid flies!


Did you know that some species of phorid flies are known as "coffin flies" because they can live and flourish in the cavity of a dead person who is buried? I am fun at parties.

Monday, November 4, 2019 5:47PM

NEW YORK (WABC) -- Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea will be promoted to New York City Police Commissioner after it was announced that James O'Neill will resign from the position of top cop.

...Shea joined the NYPD in 1991. He rose through the ranks working in narcotics, investigations and plainclothes units in Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx. He commanded the 44th and 50th Precincts in the Bronx

He grew up in Sunnyside, Queens, and was one of five kids in an Irish-American family.

His brother, James Shea, retired from the NYPD as a deputy chief. But he didn't go very far -- just across the Hudson River where he serves as Jersey City Public Safety Director. His other brother Paul is deployed with the U.S. Army.
