Mayor Fulop Announces Building Department to Open on Saturdays for Residents and Small Businesses Owners!
The Building Department will now offer Saturday hours as part of a 30-day pilot program as the Fulop Administration continues to expand services for residents and small business owners. Jersey City is currently the only large city in New Jersey as well as the only municipality in Hudson County offering Saturday Building Department hours.
“We know not all of our residents can conduct business during regular hours, which is why we added evenings and now Saturday Building Department hours,” said Mayor Fulop. “One of our goals has been to make government work for the residents, and that means providing the services and programs in the times and places that people need them.”
The office will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays beginning this Saturday, April 18, 2015. If demand is consistently high for the weekend hours, the Saturday Building Department pilot – which makes the process easier for residents and also encourages building that supports the local economy – may be expanded to include inspections and other in-field services.Read More
Mayor Fulop Announces DPW Fills More Than 7,500 Potholes in 5 Weeks
The Department of Public Works has filled more than –7,500 potholes - more than 4.5 times as many as last year – during a five-week period using an aggressive pothole repair plan that coordinated three agencies to improving response times to fill potholes more quickly and efficiently.
“We understand that residents don’t want to wait for potholes to be repaired after the winter so we deployed an aggressive plan to eliminate potholes citywide and to do it quickly and efficiently,” said Mayor Fulop. “By adding personnel and resources from the MUA and the JCIA, we were able to cover more ground and quadruple the number filled in significantly less time without adding costs.”
Pothole crews were deployed beginning March 10th and in the five weeks since have filled 7,568 potholes citywide. The RRC also worked hand-in-hand with the Department of Public Works to ensure that resident complaints were completed with 597 of the 630 potholes that were reported between January 1, 2015 and April 10, 2015 filled. The remaining potholes to be filled will be completed this week, weather permitting.
To report a pothole, residents should call the RRC at 201-547-4900 and fill out the online request form. Read More.
