Conditions which could cause a fire to spread within 25 feet of a structure shall be eliminated prior to ignition.

About 20% to 25% of the entire fire department has retired in the past 2 years alone. None of those positions were filled and 11 Deputy Positions remain vacant. That is a big piece of their operating budget. They also have placed 5 companies off duty to cut back on overtime.

Yes Bear Meatloaf is actually really good , but last i checked plenty of Americans can not put food on the table. So they can donate it to local pantries.

Really?? Most hunters eat what they kill. Or they give it to family and friends to eat. Or they donate the meat to food shelters. I find what you stated to be extremely offensive. Lack of class!

we still have not seen a laid out budget plan that should be driving the decisions (of what/where/how much to cut). if the decisions are made piecemeal, they are guaranteed to be bad decisions.

public safety should be the last to go. however, I do question the need for the police and fire director positions and their staff above the police and fire chiefs or at worst need only ONE public safety director.

eliminating the "semi-autonomous" agencies; JCIA, JCPD and especially the Parking Authority, their costs and redundancies while providing much needed civil service protections should have been on the plate of the mayor/council years ago. now, we learn it was studied, not acted on and the current effort is the opposite of what the study recommended.


Yes! The police and fire directors need to go! The autonomous agencies should also be eliminated. The JCIA should fall under the Department of Public Works.

I would also like to see the city look into contracting out for sanitation services. It is alot more cost efficient to contract it out to a private company and have jersey city residents work for them. The cost of waste disposal, salaries & benefits, equipment are just way to high. One new garbage truck costs around $300,000. CUT IT!

I have taken a pay cut over the last few years. For the better of my business. Maybe city employees should think about not taking a raise for a few years. So they can save jobs and not cut services. Plenty of people want those jobs. If the top pay for a JCPD officer was 80,000 a year. You would still see the same amount of applications flowing into city hall.

- Eliminate the Parking Authority, just as they should eliminate the Incinerator Authority. Patronage pits that serve no purpose other than to award friends, family and campaign workers.

- The payroll of the police department was almost $97 million last year. If the union doesn't want layoffs, they should be willing to take an across the board 8% salary cut. If they don't like it - move back to Jersey City and vote.

- You can't lay off top brass. But you can reassign them. Make them earn their keep and suddenly, by reactivating the dead wood you won't miss the laid off nearly as much.


Agree the Parking Authority should be eliminated. I would also like to see a 8% salary cut across every single department. If you do not like it retire or go get another job. I fully support police officers and firefighters. I would just hate to see this city with fewer police officers and fewer firefighters due to the unions sucking us dry.

Re: Burlington VT, I believe the same company planned the pedestrian malls in Burlington, Ithaca, NY and Boulder, CO. Couple this with the success of street closures on Broadway in Manhattan, and I think this Newark-as-pedestrian mall is a good idea. I live in Paulus Hook and I try to go to Newark Ave area for shopping and food as much as possible in order to support local businesses.

As someone who has walked/biked from PH to Newark Ave, I think another issue with downtown is the empty space between both neighborhoods. I usually stick to York and stop in at Tommy 2 Scoops on the way there or back. There isn't much else in between.


The sad part of that statement is Paulus Hook and Newark Ave were linked at one time. Newark Ave extended all the way down to Warren Street (pre 1960s). All the buildings along Newark Ave were later torn down for the construction of Gregory Park Apartments.

Real reform would be reducing the number of superintendents by eliminating school districts. Capping salaries just means driving qualified education executives into other fields or other states. Having more school districts than municipalities means a gross mismanagement of government resources.


Agreed. I would also like to see the consolidation of municipalities across the state. If your town has fewer than 15,000 people, it should have to merge with a town greater than 15,000. The number I came up with is irrelevant, but we really have way too many municipalities in this state. Ideally for a county like Hudson County they should merge East Newark & Harrison into Kearny. Then West New York, Guttenberg, North Bergen into Union City. And keep Secaucus, Jersey City, Bayonne, and Hoboken. So the county would have 6 municipalities. Then eliminate all local public safety agencies and provide that by the county level. And do so with other agencies. That is cutting the fat!

A little off topic but its kind of strange that the no mans land between Jersey City and Hoboken still remains so valuless in terms of property. It seems that all that can exist there are gas stations, strip malls and vacant lots. You would think there would be a little more desire to build that area up being between two relatively decent urban areas. I guess it has a lot to do with the Holland Tunnel traffic right there.


I really wish we could see some smart development between downtown and Hoboken. A nice link between both cities would be beneficial for both. Downtown still has so much area for development.

If the cops weren't so busy getting over time jobs on construction sites, maybe they could actually walk the beat in Downtown JC. Or maybe we fire all the jerk off meter maids and hire more cops. Let the cops ticket the cars, at least they will be out and about.


They should look into hiring class 2 special police officers. Alot of shore towns hire them during season. They have complete police powers and carry. Fire all of the useless meter maids.

Yes. The gray shacks are a perfect example of historic preservation run amok. Residents in the neighborhood have complained on and off for years to Del Forno (they either own or manage the building) about the people hanging out there. At its worst you had people openly getting drunk, throwing all their plastic cups and beer cans into the street, harassing women walking by and getting into the occasional fight. It's only very recently that things have quieted down a bit over there. I suspect the Rosina's developer leaned on Del Forno because they were getting ready to start showing the building. I wonder how long that will last.


Is it me or is Del Forno slumlords. I have viewed many of their properties in the downtown area and to say the least they are pathetic. The tenaments on Columbus between Barrow and Jersey were renovated about 3 years ago. I asked why there was a drop ceiling throughout the apartment and the realtor said it was for fire protection purposes. Drive by that place and you can tell they really put their money into those buildings... I know they own a few of those tenaments on Barrow also by the park.
