Still trying to understand the wisdom behind shutting off water for tenants whose only fault is that their landlord is a deadbeat.

  1. It is understandable that the city is trying to ramp up collections, as well as cut down on expenses like reducing overtime, cutting hours, implementing furloughs, etc, etc.But I can’t understand why the city doesn’t trade older 8 cylinder gas guzzlers in its fleet for smaller commuter-like compact cars with smaller 4 cylinder 2 liter engines.
    It is also shameful that the Booker administration has failed to make better use of the City of Newark website; LIKE MAKING IT POSSIBLE FOR CITIZENS TO PAY WATER, and TAX BILLS ONLINE! Who can understand not being able to pay their bills because the Booker administration is trying to SAVE money by shutting down services like the customer service window catering those who are paying their water and tax bills.
    And why are PRIVATE companies collecting recycling materials which can be sold for a PROFIT??? Can anyone explain that one?
    Once again City government is putting the cart before the horse. Politicians are intelligent during elections, and then seem to take stupid pills while in office………….
