Are there any pictures or renderings of what is being proposed. I'm having trouble picturing what this group wants to do.

Of course we can have it both ways. Didn't you see that episode of South Park (S7 E1 I'm a little bit country)? Saying one thing and doing another is one of the founding principles of our great nation.

There are two things that make those air planes frightening, first they fly low over JC. As an example, you can see them on their approach to EWR, they are very noisy. The second concern, if they were to crash in JC, they fly over at different points where the oil trains run in JC. Some chemicals in those oil trains are explosive. An accident in Canada with oil trains actually wipe out and entire town. It is one thing to have air planes for emergency use or even for news but it is another thing to have air planes over a populated area for tourism.

I don't think he was saying the map was the falsehood you keep peddling; more likely it was your assertion that more redevelopment leads to higher taxes. I mean, he pretty much said exactly that.

That is certainly a possibility, but I'm not sure. I do know that my neighbors on both sides were paying very high taxes, as both of theirs went down. One neighbor did a gut renovation prior to her inspection, and her taxes still went down.

Got my letter in the mail yesterday. I'm over by Lincoln Park. I was not surprised to see my taxes go up (only $200 for the year), but the surprising part was the small increase over the previous assessed value. The $200 per year increase also came with a +$400k increase in the assessed value. The former homeowners were paying 2018 level taxes for the last 30 years. WTF

Hey Yvonne, you have so many comments on why the system is f'cked, what is your solution? If you were the mayor, how would you have dealt with the court order to perform the reval?

I'm not asking about what you would have done in the past 30 years; I'm asking what you would have done if you were in the same situation as Fulop. If the courts were forcing you to do something, in your opinion is very unpopular, how would you have done it differently? How would you balance the needs of your neighbors who have been living in DTJC their whole lives versus the needs of the people who have been overpaying?

If you're feeling generous, you can try bringing a power strip and extension cord. Everyone would want to be friends with the person that brought extra spaces to plug in.

Won't somebody think of all these unfortunate souls that mistakenly bought a multi-unit building, and now are sitting on huge gains in their investments? I mean, how can we expect them to dip into some of their profits to pay a fair property tax. If we don't protect them now, how else will all their money trickle down to the rest of us helpless saps that only own a single family, or don't even own a home?


Resized Image

Now I see people are organizing a protest of the new assessments. I have no problem with people exercising their right to assemble, but do these people really think they are going to get sympathy?

Serious question, do people think they were, or feel, cheated in someway when they bought their property? Did they think the taxes being payed under the old assessments were fair? Did they think the taxes would never increase?

Re: Cat Groomer Recommendation?

We brought our Maine Coon to Groomingdales several years ago and it didn't go very well. We wanted a wash and a cut, but we got a phone call after the wash saying that the cat was so agitated that they wouldn't be able to do a cut. I doubt it had anything to do with their service or training, it's just that most places cater to dogs. Dogs are loud, social animals and of course cats are not. We learned how to do "cat baths" and bought some grooming clippers off Amazon and did everything at home. Sometimes it took 3 days to do a finished cut because cats don't tolerate sitting for more than a few minutes, but overall it was WAY less stressful than bringing them to a groomer. Maybe another option would be the mobile groomers that come to your house?


I went though the same scenario at Groomingdales. They were able to give her a cut one year, but the next year poor kitty was not having it. We bought a set of pet clippers and went to town ourselves. We also take the multi-day route to lessen the stress levels. Treats also play a big part in the yearly lions cut. I'd be happy to help someone with their first time trimming if needed. I'm no groomer, but I can get the job done.

What are you looking to have done? I have a long hair with a triple layer coat and we had a hard time finding any local places that did grooming on cats. Most places said that cats were to difficult.

I ended up learning to give my kitty a lion cut in the summer, and cut her nails at home.

This looks like the same spread sheet that was posted earlier.

I wonder what the likelihood is that some JC politicians are browsing this forum.
Have any newspaper articles appeared that anyone can point out that explore the disruption in the lives
of the aged? These people only seek to live out their lives in the buildings and neighborhoods to which they've become accustomed. They've been good citizens, obeyed the laws, raised their families to do the same, and are now faced with the hardships of ridiculously high tax rates which make no sense whatever. The politicians of New Jersey should be ashamed for abandoning these seniors in the waning years of their lives.
And for those of you who offer economic reasoning and proffer same solutions to the panic in the lives of these citizens, remember: "what goes around comes around".


I can't take credit for this idea, but I will pose the question to Rich. Rich, if you feel so bad for all the seniors who now sit on 1+million dollar homes, I'll make a deal with you. You round up all the people you claim are going to be forced out of their homes. Bring them to me, and I will buy their homes/land for what they originally paid for it. I will let them live out their remaining years in their home, and they can continue to pay the same taxes to me, I'll make up the difference, and everyone wins. Of course, I get to keep the land/property once the current resident passes away.

Deal?

The free ride is over now people. If you didn't prepare for this inevitable bomb, that's on you.

The market won't collapse, it will go though a little turbulence as people adjust to the reality of what they should have been paying in taxes.

To the people who were paying seriously under assessed taxes, what did you think was going to happen? I mean, you had to know your 2.5M house was not really supposed to be assesed at 200k, right?

I think I saw this on WPIX news the other day, but given the size of the Leonia police dept, and the many grey areas already mentioned, this is not really going to be enforced in any real way. This was done mainly so GPS like Waze or Google will now reroute people around the neighborhoods since the software now sees the streets as closed.

R/C Car Racing in JC?

Anyone into racing R/C cars in JC? I used to do a lot of electric on and off road, but it's been awhile. Looking to see if there is any interest since it's always better to race with other people.

I have had mixed experience with using the app and the response from the city. I have had good luck with potholes getting filled, tree trimming, and trash clogging sewers. Anything else seems to get closed pretty quick. Hopefully the data from reports is being collected so city resources can be allocated to the areas that need it.

Tried Gringos for the first time on Saturday evening. We go there are around 6:30pm. The outside area was pretty full, and so was the dinning room. I was prepared for a wait, but to my surprise I was seated right away. Ordered drinks pretty quickly, and some chips w/ salsa and guacamole for the table. Chips came quickly, and were decent. Drink were okay. Not the best margarita I have ever had, but I have had far worse. We ordered the Al Pastor, Holy Mole, and Pig Out tacos. I like the Al Pastor and Pig Out the best.

Overall it was a good experience except for the service. I know the service in DTJC can leave one wishing for more; especially given our proximity to NYC, but this was one of the worst experiences yet. Our waitress seemed to be to busy chatting with her friends behind the bar than to server her tables.
