The Bayonne Tax Collector’s Office announced that third quarter property tax payments are due on Monday, August 10. The nominal legal due date for the tax bills is Saturday, August 1. However, the City Council authorized a grace period through the close of business on Monday, August 10. Payments made by that date will avoid a late fee. Property owners may pay their taxes by mail or in person at City Hall, 630 Avenue C, or at Bayonne branches of BCB Community Bank, or through the City of Bayonne website, www.bayonnenj.org. The third quarter bills are called estimated bills, because Hudson County has not struck an official tax rate yet for 2020. The county will announce the tax rate in August.
By state law, quarterly payments received after the close of business on Monday, August 10, will incur interest charges dating back to Saturday, August 1, the nominal, legal due date for the third quarter. For anyone making payment in person on August 10, the Tax Collector’s Office strongly recommends paying in person at City Hall before the close of business that day at 4:30 p.m. There are boxes inside the two sets of front doors at City Hall where taxpayers can drop off various payments. Be sure to drop your tax payment in the tax box, which looks like a mailbox.
Those who handle their property taxes through their monthly mortgage payments should have received advice copies of the property tax bills in the most recent tax mailing. They should continue paying their property taxes through their mortgages.

Mayor Jimmy Davis announced that the City of Bayonne is joining with the Hudson County Small Business Grant Program: “I understand the difficulties facing our small business community, and I have been fighting hard to get much-needed aid. With the constantly changing guidelines from the federal government, we have faced unpredictable delays. However, I am happy to announce we will be teaming up with the program being created by Hudson County to facilitate the Small Business Grant Program. This will allow us to support Bayonne’s businesses better during the application process. I am confident in the county’s abilities and our ability as a city to make it through this trying time.”
This program is designed to provide financial grants to small businesses affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic. First priority will be given to businesses which have not received any federal grant assistance, New Jersey Economic Development Authority grants, U.S. Small Administration grants, or any other grant assistance. While the county is currently completing the application, small businesses can begin to prepare for the application process by gathering the following documents that will be needed to be uploaded in digital format:
+ Copy of last Form WR-30 filed with the State of New Jersey
+ Copy of last filed federal income tax return or proof of owner draws

The Hoboken Arts Advisory Committee today launched the “Art Box Mural Project” to beautify 15 utility boxes along Washington Street. The City of Hoboken, along with the committee, invite all artists who live or work in Hoboken to submit art proposals reflecting the theme of “equality and inclusion” to be painted on the utility boxes. 15 selections will be based on relevance to the theme, quality of work and proven experience with similar projects. Artists without previous public art experience are also encouraged to apply.
“Hoboken is committed to beautifying our public spaces and supporting our local artists, and I’m thrilled the arts committee is undertaking this quality of life initiative,” said Mayor Ravi S. Bhalla. “The theme of equality and inclusion selected by the committee for the murals is an important one, as Hoboken will always be a fair and welcoming place where all are treated with respect. Thank you to all seven members of the arts committee for their continued efforts on this important project for our City.”

Hudson County Community College (HCCC) Foundation Board of Directors Chair, Joseph Napolitano, Sr., announced that the College’s President, Dr. Christopher M. Reber, has pledged a personal donation of $50,000 to establish an endowed scholarship fund for full- and part-time HCCC students. Dr. Reber will fulfill this pledge through payroll deduction over the next five years. He plans to continue adding funds to the scholarship endowment throughout his lifetime and through his estate planning.
Mr. Napolitano said Dr. Reber created the endowment to provide a stable and perpetual source of income that will assist HCCC students in paying tuition and achieving their academic goals with fewer interruptions or postponements.
More than 90% of HCCC students are eligible for financial aid or scholarships. The Christopher M. Reber Endowed Scholarship will be awarded by the HCCC Foundation Award Selection Committee to full- and part-time students enrolled at the College, including Dreamers and international students, who are in good academic standing; have a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.5; and demonstrate financial need.
