How about you shit on where it's appropriate and call out JCPD for doing a piss poor job? It is their responsibility to protect and serve this city. The only time I see JCPD in Lafayette is when double parked (blocking the bicycle lane ) in front of Chico's or taking a nap on Manning & Maple.

There are way too many cops in JC that live in the suburbs, put in their 20, and cash out. Majority of them give two shits whether or not residents in Jersey City are being shot on daily basis.

it turns my stomach that the police department eats up ~20% of the city budget with this record.

A relative of mine works at SIMS Metal, at the foot of Linden ave, stated they are closing within 4-5 years. During a morning safety meeting someone mentioned a casino is going in. Once (when, not if) law is changed for gambling to be legal outside of Atlantic City, this project will happen. Just hoping it will actually be on the south side of golf course, not near LSP.

I believe most, if not all, are done using the "cold patch" technique which is the cheap and short term solution. My guess is that it's due to the aggressive street repaving program that will be implemented in the near future covering 75 streets in total.

This comes from a combination of State and City funds with the former covering 8 streets and the latter 67. City contract bids were due 3/24 followed by council vote (4/22?) and work starting in mid-May, fingers crossed.

Hopefully streets not scheduled to be repaved this year will get the "hot patch" treatment once it does get warmer.

I got an email which contains all the info...

Dear neighbor,

We have officially passed the filing deadline, and the field is set for the election on May 14th. Working together, we can overcome some great odds against the Healy machine.

Can you help by putting a house sign in front of your property? All you have to do is:

1) Respond to this email (info@stevenfulop.com)

2) Provide your address, name, and phone number

We will help put up the sign. And of course we will take it down after the election.

Last week, our team made a commitment to not place signs on public poles. We challenged Mayor Healy to make the same commitment. Putting campaign signs on public property has a long history in Jersey City, but it is unsightly--and our team is trying to clean up the streets, not make them uglier. That's why we are asking you to consider putting a sign on your house, proudly telling your neighbors that you believe in the possibility of change in Jersey City.

Hope you can join us!

Steve

Can anyone here help identify this gentleman? His dog ran up to me without a leash (corner of 8th and W. Hamilton), he apologized and I politely reminded that his dog should be on a leash in public places (90-16 off leash in a public place). Being a reasonable adult, he called me a douche bag, asshole and told me to mind my own f'ing business. We exchanged some more f words and he dared me to call the cops on him but instead, I took some pictures which did not please him.

Offender was a tall & scrawny looking with a golden retriever. PM if you can assist as I do want to report him to the Division of Animal Control with proof of him walking his dog without a leash. Any help is appreciated.

Political Insider: Mayoral race politics dictated new Dabney contract

Published: Saturday, July 28, 2012, 7:23 AM

By Agustin C. Torres/The Jersey Journal
Follow

You just can't get enough of this story. The Jersey City Incinerator Authority approved the "Sandra Cunningham's not running for mayor" contract on Wednesday, guaranteeing a five-year compensation package for agency Executive Director Oren K. Dabney, one of Cunningham's chief political cronies -- even if the JCIA disappears tomorrow. Now we can begin the pummeling.
Let's put this situation in simple terms. The JCIA commissioners unanimously approved the pact Tuesday. It gives about a 5 percent pay hike to Dabney's $120,205 salary. He'll get up to 4 percent (and you know it'll be exactly that) for each of the remaining years. Dabney also gets a car that is available for personal use all the time, except that he can only use it for three weeks each time he goes on vacation. Go figure.

The kicker is that if the JCIA is dissolved or Dabney is removed, he gets paid the remainder of the contract and is guaranteed a pension and lifetime health benefits.
There is a real possibility that his position would not be needed should the city administration have the gonads to go ahead with its initial plan to combine the JCIA and city Department of Public Works into one entity.

One concern, as witnessed by Journal reporter Terrence T. McDonald, is that the JCIA commissioners haven't a clue of what specifically it is they approved. It is amazing that it was Commissioner Mike Rooney -- he of basketball fame -- who questioned what was in the contract. It must have been a knee-jerk reaction by Rooney, who recognized the back door cut to the golden basket.

JCIA attorney Timothy J. Hawkes described the pact to the agency's governing body as nothing different from the one the panel OK'd for the executive director in 2009 -- except the original expires in two years and the new one in 2017. Was it a fib, hyperbole, or perhaps a mental lapse? It almost seemed as if Hawkes was representing Dabney, but what do I know.


JCIA commissioner?
I don't want to paint everyone who serves on any agency during this city administration with the same paint-by-numbers brush, but what do you say when Phil Flood, widower of the late Councilwoman Willie Flood, advises Rooney that he can see the contract the next day, after he provides a rubber stamp vote?

To placate Rooney, and probably set him straight, the crew went into a closed door session to discuss the contract. I presume it was done because a reporter was the only member of the public. Had McDonald not been there, then we could have become more philosophical -- whether you would have heard the tree fall in the forest.

Why is it a "Cunningham is not running for mayor" contract?
Despite the protestations, Mayor Jerramiah Healy must have agreed to the pact. It helps state Sen. Cunningham's pal. Some believe Cunningham plans to challenge Healy and Downtown Councilman Steven Fulop for mayor. This vote appears to be a concession to Cunningham by the mayor to keep her out of the race.

Next, I suspect, the senator would like to name a number of Healy's council running mates.

The mayor does protest the Dabney -- or is that future Assemblyman Dabney (beware, Charles Mainor) -- contract, some.

He says: "We're going to review all of the contracts for the executive directors of all the autonomous agencies to make sure that there are no raises inconsistent with the fiscal restraints we've placed on all city directors and employees for the past three years."

The mayor's staff says they knew of the contract vote but were unaware of the pact's terms. Let's see, they knew there was a contract vote but were not made suspicious by the fact there was already one in place? One JCIA member who approved the contract is Kevin Lyons, who works in the Mayor's Office.

The proposed merger of the JCIA and DPW was being ballyhooed by the Healy administration as a way of cutting spending costs, including jobs, to the tune of about $6.4 million. Most of those whose jobs may have been threatened would probably come from the JCIA, where Cunningham has most of her patronage, but the main concern is obviously Dabney's position.

So naturally, Healy gets cold feet as the May election approaches and there is only talk of a small amount of downsizing. It reminds most people of the mayor's decision to postpone property revaluation -- until after the city election.
Then, the city decides to bail out the JCIA by providing funds to pay the agency's surprising $7 million debt in past due bills. Dabney claims the city is to blame for not giving the agency enough funds to pay carting companies -- who are probably not picking up garbage from restaurants, colleges, and other questionable sites. Remember, I said "not" ;).
I forgot to mention that the JCIA commissioners decided to reopen Dabney's contract to reward him for exceptional service. This probably includes providing a flatbed truck for Jersey City Democratic Organization use in the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade.

Fulop's reaction is stronger. He and fellow City Council members Rolando Lavarro, Nidia Lopez and David Donnelly have asked for the state attorney general to probe the JCIA's action, called for the agency's board members to resign, and plan to introduce an ordinance to place the JCIA within the DPW. They will also frown a great deal at the Aug. 1 council session.

I'm surprised they did not take the matter to the city ethics board. Oh, wait, is there one? I don't recall the panel of moral principles meeting in several years.

So the guy mismanages the agency to the tune of $6.8 million, has the city bail it out (1) and gets rewarded?

Being that his former contract did not expire until 2014, a new one was signed with so many loop holes that if the agency is dissolve or merged with DPW (as expected), JC residents will be stuck with paying this hack ~$126k to ~$150k annually over the next 5 years with benefits for the rest of his life (!) and to top it off, use of city car...."superior services rendered" indeed, suckers.

Where are the pitchforks people?

60,000+ views and still lots of complaints. Being that JCPD/animal control isn't or just feasibly can't enforce the leash/poop laws, how about just
shaming these jerks on JCList?

I haven't had that much bad experience with dog poo (luck?) but dealing with people that let their dogs off the leash really grinds my gears. Yes, I understand your bitch is harmless, playful, "does not bite" and you want to let her to be a free spirit. But your ignorant (of the law) ass does not understand
that it agitates my dog because all he wants to do is smell her asshole while she mocks him from far away. Not cool.

Not picking up dog shit or letting your dog off the leash in public space (unless in a dog run) is against the law so you would be doing your civil duty to bring attention to those who break the law. I can't imagine it's illegal or get in trouble to take a picture/video of someone breaking the law
in public. Next time you see someone that does not clean up after their dog or has it off the leash after a warning, just whip out that phone and tell them to "Smile, you're on JCList" take a pic and post it on this thread. Any opinions?
