A couple of years ago, the late Councilman Yun invited me to his club where he showed me the city's bonds schedule. He was delighted the bonds would be paid off soon and concluded the tax rate would drop. I knew that would not happened, that the city would keep refinancing bonds. In fact, JC bonds have been refinanced so many times it has lost its tax exempted status. Tax exempt status only applies when bonds builds something. We are building nothing. What the city should do is make this information available for the public.

This is the same group that want affordable housing which pays not a penny to the school system at all. They expect others to pay for affordable housing fair share of funding public schools.


Someone does not understand how amortization and time value of money works.

Great letter in the NJ.com site Yvonne.

Truly tells it like it is.

Pity the older homeowners and the working people in Jersey City.

Keep fighting the good fight.

No, you don't run a city that is short on cash to the point that you refinance your bonds that has one to 6 years left. Once those bonds are paid off, you have more money available. That is poor management and Fulop has been in office for quite some time so if there is a shortage of cash, he can only point to himself.

No, it is not, those bonds were expiring in two to seven years. You don't refinance your mortgage if you have five years on your loan, you are paying more in the long run even if the interest rate is low.

Several months ago, the city refinanced bonds that were do to expire in 2022 to 2027, because it did not have the funds to pay them off. The city should give an account to property owners on all debt.

It never ends. All the development hasnt helped reduce taxes. The rest of the world has seen shrinking budgets and decrease wages not city employess however.
