City Looks to Increase Dog License Fees & Offer a Discounted 3-Year License
#1
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


Under the proposal, the annual dog license fee would rise from $6.70 per neutered dog and $9.70 per unneutered dog to $8 per neutered dog and $12 per unneutered dog. But the city would also offer the option of a three-year discounted license costing $20 per neutered dog and $30 per unneutered dog.

The Sussex Street school found one bedbug on a teacher on Tuesday and exterminated that teacher's room, according to principal Terry Watkins-Williams. She says the school plans on bringing an exterminator back over the weekend, and that she and other school leaders are currently awaiting further instructions from the Jersey City school district.

If you missed it ...

we caught up with Park & Sixth owner Brian Dowling last week:

"I love the diversity, the people, the restaurants here. The customer base is a little more artsy, more cerebral," he says. "Locals have been stopping in, saying 'I can't wait' and 'There's nothing like it down here.' There are some great places like Taqueria and Ibby's in the neighborhood, but my place is unique."

Latest Twist in Jersey City Food Truck Saga: Vendors Band Together, Bring in NYC Group for Support

lengthy update story published today by JCI:

As City Hall continues to consider potential changes to Jersey City?s food truck ordinance, about a dozen vendors have formed a coalition to push for substantive reform.

The vendors say they are acting out of frustration with both the glacial pace of city government and a sense of stepped-up enforcement from the Jersey City Police Department (JCPD).

Check out the full story here.

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Mariano Vega (finally) resigns; Phil Kenny forfeits his seat as well
#9
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


Iwitness is correct. Here's some more about what's next.

"Reached this afternoon, City Clerk Robert Byrne confirmed that Vega is stepping down only as Council President but retaining his At-Large seat. He says that the council can either continue to function with At-Large councilman Peter Brennan running the show as Council President Pro Tem, or the council could elect a new president altogether.

As for Kenny?s seat, the council can vote to appoint someone to fill it within the next 30 days; that person would serve an interim term until the November 2010 elections. If the council can?t come to an agreement on who should be appointed, the body could in theory continue to operate as an eight-person council until next fall as well."

You are right IWitness, wording was a little unclear coming out of city hall. But Vega resigns ONLY his council president position; NOT his at-large seat.

Re: Associated Press: Jersey Journal to keep operating as cost goals met

The Jersey Journal is Saved but At Least Five Jobs Are Lost

Yesterday Jersey Journal publisher Kendrick Ross announced that Jersey City?s only daily paper and its affiliated community weeklies had met first quarter revenue projections and will continue publishing for now, avoiding an April 13 closure that was threatened earlier this year. But the paper will be forced to press on with a smaller staff.

?The paper is living on to fight another day,? Bayonne reporter and Newspaper Guild Local 42 president Ron Leir says, ?partly as a result of sacrifices made by employees.?

Those sacrifices include the departure of five editorial employees, several who have spent decades at the paper. Leir says that he is taking a buyout, along with sports reporter Leon Banks, life editor Rebecca Markley, columnist Earl Morgan, and arts editor Jeff Theodore. That leaves seven guild positions in the editorial department. All eight editorial management positions were spared.

Mayor Healy Declines Another Candidate Forum

This Wednesday, the Jersey Journal editors are putting on a mayoral forum at New Jersey City University that is to be videotaped and published on NJ.com, but only four of the five candidates will be there.

The campaign of Mayor Jerramiah Healy sent a letter earlier this week to the Journal saying it ?welcomes and supports a vigorous conversation,? but ?will give first priority to attending debates that are sponsored by respected, fair and unbiased organizations and that reach a broad audience.?

It would be great if someone could create a direct comparison chart of the candidates and their views/history in online or word/excel based spreadsheet.

While we don't have the ability right now to get this granular and comprehensive on the candidates, we will be rolling out a series of stories this month on the candidates' positions on specific issues, like the environment, crime and criminal justice, the arts, and development/transit. Not quite the same, but it's something.

Is there a website that shows all the city council votes and the vote records of the members?


We are also currently pursuing foundation grants to set something like this up for the city, based on the lovely THOMAS system for Congress.

We will keep you posted.

as promised, dntshoot, we made our 2009 elections database live today. it includes info on every candidate running for mayor or council and can be organized by ticket or office.

each candidate's page has a bio, links to our coverage of that person, and a google news feed of other news outlets' coverage.

it's relatively low-tech but we think it's a good one-stop resource.

check it out here.

as for the school board, we'll be publishing q&as with many of the candidates in a few weeks.
