Lavarro proposes fewer street cleanings in Jersey City

Updated 7:38 PM; Posted 7:38 PM
By Terrence T. McDonald tmcdonald@jjournal.com

The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY — Council President Rolando Lavarro wants the city to cut down to twice-a-week street cleaning citywide, an idea that is part of a package of proposals Lavarro calls "street sweep reform."

The package includes simple items like a ticket amnesty program — one that would give residents a complete break for tickets issued before Jan. 1, 2017 — and an idea that may be a tough lift, a plan to keep anyone from getting their driver's license suspended because of unpaid street sweeper tickets.

Whose N.J. class ring ended up at the bottom of a lake in Texas?

Larry the metal detector starts off most of his days waist-deep in water searching for his next treasure.

"There's no telling what's in the ground," the 51-year-old said.

But there's one that he found on Aug. 5 that has him and his partner, Pam, stumped -- and they're asking the same question over and over: How did a 3-year-old Jersey City grammar school class ring end up in a lake in Cleburne, Texas, population 29,377.

Jersey City property owners getting extra time to pay tax bill
Updated 9:02 AM; Posted 9:02 AM
By Ron Zeitlinger The Jersey Journal

Jersey City is giving Jersey City residents a grace period to pay their Aug. 1 tax bills, officials said.

The municipal tax rate of $1.48 (per $100 of assessed value) was certified by the Hudson County Tax Board on July 27 and property owners are expected to receive their bills in the next three weeks.

Because of the delay, residents will have a 25-day grace period from the date they receive their bills, city officials said.

Jersey City's first low-cost spay/neuter mobile van is gassed up and on the road, thanks to an extraordinary fund-raising drive by a local business.

Exchange Physical Therapy Group co-owner Jaclyn Fulop -- who spearheaded the campaign that raised more than $125,000 -- and Liberty Humane Society cut the ribbon for the van Monday during a ceremony at the animal shelter at 235 Jersey City Blvd.

JERSEY CITY — Jersey City spent one day riding high on its new policy decriminalizing marijuana before state Attorney General Gurbir Grewal told the city's new chief prosecutor on Friday that the policy is void because it violates state criminal laws.

AEG Live set to take over Loew's in Jersey City

Posted Jun 26, 2014
By Terrence T. McDonald The Jersey Journal

AEG Live, one of the globe's largest concert promoters, is set to win a contract to take over management of the Landmark Loew's Jersey Theatre in Jersey City, and the firm pledges to bring "top talent" to the Journal Square theater.

A city official said AEG offered "far and away" the largest bid to run the venue, saying it would pay $350,000 annually to rent the city-owned theater for 30 years and contribute $3.5 million toward renovation of the 85-year-old former movie palace.

Mark Shulman, AEG's vice president and general manager, said the firm hopes to make the Loew's "a hub for the entire area." Programming should begin in late 2015, after renovations are complete, according to Schulman.

AEG, which will partner with New Jersey City University and Mana Contemporary to offer 40 community events annually, was competing with Live Nation, Ace Theatrical Group and local firm Catch a Rising Star.

Drivers, here are the words you've all been waiting to hear: The Pulaski Skyway is open.

And two days early, no less!

The New Jersey Department of Transportation had said the spans that make up the Skyway would reopen by Monday, but drivers were overjoyed and even a bit confused Saturday when they found they could again travel on its lanes.

It came really close, but New Jersey won't shut down for the second year in a row.

Gov. Phil Murphy and fellow Democrats who control the state Legislature reached a state budget deal Saturday evening, capping more than four months of drama, according to two sources familiar with the talks.

Murphy will hold a joint news conference with Senate President Stephen Sweeney and Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin at 7:30 p.m.

NJDOT: NEWS RELEASE: June 29, 2018

Pulaski Skyway reopens to two-way traffic marking a major milestone as new deck is complete

Rehabilitation project continues with substructure and ramp work


(Trenton) -New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today announced that the northbound lanes on the Pulaski Skyway are scheduled to be reopened by Monday, July 2 returning two-way traffic to the iconic bridge.

“Rehabilitating an 85-year-old structure that is 3.5 miles long is a massive undertaking, and the completion of the redecking portion of this project marks a major milestone, but there is still more work to do,” NJDOT Commissioner Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti said. “Greater deterioration of steel required more extensive repairs than expected, and combined with some of the worst winter weather in New Jersey history, this portion of the 11-contract project took longer than originally anticipated. We appreciate the public’s patience while these necessary repairs were made and traffic was rerouted. The good news is the innovative materials and methods used to rehabilitate the Skyway mean this deck will last for decades to come.”

JERSEY CITY -- A former Jersey City police dispatcher maintained his innocence when he was sentenced to 40 years in prison Wednesday for strangling his wife in the presence of their 2-year-old son in their Country Village home in 2014.

"There isn't a more intimate, violent and cruel death than strangulation," Hudson County Assistant Prosecutor Linda Claude-Oben said of the death of Monica Montone, 34, who died at the hands of her husband, Kevin Montone, 37, on Aug. 18, 2014.

New Jersey retailers stock up on fireworks ahead of July 4
Posted: Jun 25, 2018 8:05 PM EST
Updated: Jun 25, 2018 8:05 PM EST

HAZLET - Retailers all across New Jersey have been stocking up on fireworks ahead of the Fourth of July holiday.

Former Gov. Chris Christie signed a law last year allowing certain types of fireworks to be sold in New Jersey. But the law was signed very close to the holiday, which meant that many shops were not able to stock up in time.

But this year, with ample time to stock up, everything from small convenience stores to big box stores are carrying the items.

PS - Looks like the rt 440 tent is not open yet. Saw this on the web site:

NOTE: Some Stands & Tents may not yet be open. Open dates are subject to local laws, ordinances and regulations

I thought I was transported to South of the Border on I-95 today when I saw the many TNT Fireworks signs, flags, banners, and a big white tent in the Rt 440 Kmart parking lot. I saw the tent go up during the week and was wondering what it would hold. Well today I found out it is a TNT Fireworks tent.

I know some are legal now after Christie signed the law on June 28, 2017. I guess there wasn’t much time last year to get stores stocked for the 4th of July. Looks like they are well stocked this year saw them in Target.

Interesting to see how many fires and injuries there will be in JC this year.

TNT Fireworks site: (and don’t think it is just for us hicks on the other side of rt 78…it looks like they have a TNT tent Downtown too..wee doggies!)

https://www.tntfireworks.com/locations ... 3652-jersey-city-nj-07305

PS – as I was getting food at the nearby Wendy’s 3 JCPD SUV’s were next to the tent and it looked like they were going over the sellers (with a Joe Dirt mullet) papers and seeing what he had in the nearby storage trailer. Reminded me of when we used to get busted for having mats of firecrackers back in the day. The coppers used to confiscate them and bring them to the “evidence room”…yeah right.

Summer has only just begun, but the summer festival calendar in New Jersey is in full effect, chock full of events dedicated to food, music and community fun.

Maybe you want to pick some blueberries in the birthplace of the fruit's cultivation. Maybe you want to take a ride in a hot air balloon overlooking summer greenery. Maybe you want to eat some barbecue ribs while listening to Foghat. And maybe you want to eat your weight in seafood, tacos or Jersey tomatoes.

There's a festival for that.

Survey our list of summer festivals below to help plan your weekends, day trips and other outings this season.

** ** we made the list ** **

July 4: Freedom and Fireworks Festival, Jersey City

Snoop Dogg headlines the fifth edition of Jersey City's Fourth of July celebration, the Freedom and Fireworks Festival, which runs from noon to 10 p.m. on July 4. The festival's carnival and pyrotechnic display will be at Exchange Place (Montgomery Street at the Hudson River) with fireworks by Grucci after sunset; www.freedomandfireworks.com
