As far as i am concerned most governments want their citizens stoned because they are easier to control.

Is that why marijuana and opiates have been illegal in the US and almost all states for decades?

And why the push to legalize marijuana has been pushed by the public in dozens of states, while the government in almost every one of those states has opposed legalization?

Quote:
The vice story said one NJ proposal wanted to start the tax at 7%, then after several years it would grow to 25%. No idea what alcohol is taxed at but it is pretty obvious the only thing they want is immediate increased usage and a new revenue stream that grows to feed their spending addiction.

Oooookay

First of all, alcohol is taxed at 12 cents a gallon for beer, 87.5 cents for wine, spirits $5.50.

Second, both governments and pro-pot advocates are openly saying they could use this to raise taxes.

Third, spending levels haven't changed much in NJ since at least 2009.

Finally, feel free to go over the NJ budget and tell us all what ought to be cut. You know that property tax relief is a huge chunk of spending, right? Maybe we can cut education spending, perhaps? Police? CHIP?


The state is looking for a big tax payday like Colorado.

Does anyone know how NJ's property tax relief programs will impact the reval costs?

I know there is some sort of income-based rebate and a "senior freeze," but I don't know how that might impact some bills or rebates.


There are lots of hoops you have to jump through and you don't get any relief until many years have passed.

After more than 14 years of proudly serving the Newport community, we sadly announce that our lease has expired and that Confucius Asian Bistro is closing its doors on November 20,2017.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your loyal patronage for these many years and allowing us to serve you.

Best regards and fare well


This is terrible news many of the restaurant spaces are empty now not a good look for the area. I hope they get another good Chinese restaurant soon.

It'll be interesting to see what happens when dispensaries open up for recreational weed. I'm anticipating the NIMBYs that pack every association and board to not allow that type of business to open up in their neighborhood against the best wishes of the residents that overwhelmingly voted in favor of it. Same thing with why we have such poor biking infrastructure - every bike lane proposal is shot down by those boards.


Tell the NIMBYS that the state tax revenues from the sale of weed will bring down their property taxes and they will jump on board faster than you can blink.

Surimi crabmeat is the fake crabmeat you see in Japanese restaurants. It's made from a variety of white fish and is processed to have the approximate taste of crabmeat.

You summed it up perfectly, I thought they were supposed to asses the hvac, condition of the bathrooms and kitchens and any renovations according to the letter I received. I guess those things matter less now.


More important for single-family home than condo. But honestly no need to inspect every home in the city.


I'm ok with the inspection as long as the assessment isn't wildly inflated. The tax dept has a history of doing this.

For a 3-bdrm, that sounds generally right - probably on the low end of the range. I don't think neighborhoods matter that much in the calculation of monthly maintenance fees. A building that's downtown will have the same overhead as one in JSQ. The biggest expense for the building is likely the master insurance policy, followed by the heat/hot water if it's common expense rather than billed separately to each unit owner. A 10-unit building is a small one, so it's not going to get the same economies of scale as, say, a 200-unit building that would make having a gym or hiring a doorman feasible.


I agree with Jaded that sounds reasonable for a 3 br what is the overall sq ft for that unit, if it is 1200-1500 sq ft it's a good deal.

But good in the long run, as those shut out of Razza look elsewhere, other places up their game to compete for these customers, and new restaurateurs see JC as a viable place to open and still be on the NYC foodie radar like Brooklyn is.


One item that was on many peoples wish list who wanted to see night life grow is that we needed a reason for people to come to Jersey City. We have one now.

We are in the cycle of the full moon which makes the tides higher combined with the Cat 5 wind from the storm. I can conceive of a 62 ft wave out on the ocean but not sure about a wave that big making it to land.

Thanks


I've been donating my clothes to St Lucy's there are clothing bins in the lot behind the shelter. I don't know if suits would be useful to their clients but it might be worth a call to find out.

I agree, given the limited info. Look, here's AC and fridge 101:

There's the compressor, the thing that actually makes cold, and there's the controls that tell it when to go on and off. The Compressor has a motor that you can hear start when it needs cold, and stop when it's cold enough. That's in addition to the quieter fan motor.

The compressor has no slightly on, it's either on or off. If your compressor is running, and the tubes behind the filter are getting cold, then your compressor is OK. If you can hear the compressor running and the tubes don't get cold or only a little bit, it's toast. If you can't get the compressor to run, or it gets cold but turns off too soon, it might be just a controls problem.

Honestly, I just don't think a window unit is worth agonizing about. Even a fridge isn't worth replacing the compressor. I did it for a side by side, cost $400 and it crapped out just after the year warrantee. Controls are different. I just replaced the computer AGAIN in my 9 year old fridge that wasn't keeping cold, cost $120 for the part, youtubed the procedure that was easier than swapping a PC motherboard, and it was back working perfectly.


If this is the problem the parts and labor will come close or equal to what you would pay for a new mid price ac.

Sounds like a failing compressor, go to YouTube and put in you make and model along with the basic problem, such as not cooling and see what comes up. If it is a simple inexpensive fix the video can tell you how to fix it.

Robin.

You could be right and I hope you are, I'm expecting at least a $10,000 hit. Do the people who set the ratio each year, the guess of how the total value of all the ratables has risen, know their business or not? How close they were determines how much of a rate change to expect.

Either way this needs to be done. I hope all of us that are here nine years from now keep a vigilant eye out and don't let a delay happen again.


Should we look at Hoboken's taxes as an example of where our taxes will be or are they a horse of a different color?

But Fairway does. How come there's no Fairway love here? I used to go to the one on 133rd all the time when I was visiting Columbia frequently.


When I lived in Manhattan I always went to Fairway, it was a great store many years ago. Recently I went to the store in Paramus and visited the Chelsea location, I was very disappointed. Perhaps I got used to shopping at Whole Foods and realized Fairway is not keeping up with the competition.
