Do the people in charge ever place ads for city positions or do they just use the mayors rolodex.18 percent property tax,increased school tax and now a 9 percent rise in county taxes while other towns around us are mantaining a stable tax base is insane.

2 calling for freeze on hiring by the city
Wednesday, May 10, 2006
By EARL MORGAN
JOURNAL STAFF WRITER

Jersey City Councilman Steve Fulop and Councilwoman Viola Richardson are proposing a freeze in hiring by the city, citing a recent increase in property taxes and the specter of higher county and school taxes.

"When you can't pay the mortgage, don't go out and hire a gardener," Fulop said at Monday night's council caucus.

Fulop and Richardson say they would exempt anyone on the state Civil Service list for Police and Fire department appointments and promotions, although Fulop said he would prohibit creating new police detectives since that is not an actual rank.

"Making guys detectives is more about patronage," Fulop said.

Fulop said he wants a resolution on tonight's council meeting agenda. But that idea immediately ran into opposition from his colleagues Monday night; there was no clear decision on whether the resolution will be included.

Corporation Counsel Bill Matsikoudis said a hiring freeze already is in effect.

"Show me the memo on that," Fulop retorted. Several council members, including Bill Gaughan and Michael Sottolano, voiced opposition to the idea.

"You have to remember there are departments that need to hire inspectors or other personnel," Gaughan said.

Fulop held up a list of names he said represents recent new hires on the city payroll.
