Mayor Jimmy Davis announced that the City of Bayonne will hold an unveiling ceremony for its 20th anniversary September 11th Memorial on Wednesday, April 6, at 11:00 a.m.  The ceremony will take place in front of Bayonne City Hall, which is located at 630 Avenue C, between 27th and 28th Streets.

Mayor Davis said, “Bayonne played an important role in providing emergency response on September 11, 2001 and in the days that followed the attack on the World Trade Center.” He continued, “It is most appropriate that the new memorial will include a piece of steel from the World Trade Center.”

BAYONNE’S SAINT JOSEPH BELLS ON ROAD TRIP

Bells on a road trip: The bells from the former St Joseph’s Catholic Church of Bayonne are shown on a truck that left the city recently to go to Cincinnati, Ohio.  That’s where the bells will be polished and prepared for their new home in the soon-to-be- constructed bell tower in Fitzpatrick Park.  That park is located on Avenue C between 26th and 27th Streets, across the street from City Hall.  The park is named after former Mayor Francis G. Fitzpatrick. Mayor Jimmy Davis’s Administration saved the bells, so that they would be preserved for future generations in their new home.  St. Joseph’s Church served Bayonne’s Slovak Catholic community.

Outdoor Dining Permits Available in Bayonne

          In order to support the local economy, Mayor Jimmy Davis and the Bayonne City Council have announced that, beginning April 1, 2022, local food and/or beverage establishments may be able to establish temporary outdoor seating with the issuance of a temporary use permit. These permits may allow food and/or beverage establishments to expand the areas available for seating on a case-by-case basis.  These temporary use permits were approved for most establishments for the past two years through an active mercantile license from the City of Bayonne.  If a food and/or beverage establishment received approval in 2020 or 2021 for temporary outdoor dining, a new application is not required if the proposed use remains the same.  However, proof of 2022 insurance must be provided. If the business proposal has changed, a new application will be required.

Major Bayonne Paving Program to Begin on Avenue A and Several Side Streets

Mayor Jimmy Davis announced that a major street-paving program is starting in Bayonne on or about Monday, March 28.

Preliminary work on handicap ramps and concrete will take place on several streets in the coming days. Milling and paving will come next in late April or early May, weather permitting.

Milling involves grinding up and removing the old street surface, so that new paving can begin. Signs will be posted on the appropriate streets to advise residents of the construction activity.

The $1,854,136.25 paving contract was awarded to the 4 Clean-Up contracting firm. The work is funded in part by a grant of $802,443 from the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT). The rest of the funding comes from the New Jersey Infrastructure Bank (I-Bank).

Mayor Davis said, “The City of Bayonne appreciates the state funding that will help us resurface streets throughout the community.” Mayor Davis continued, “Each year, the Department of Public Works prepares a list of streets that need to be resurfaced and then seeks to match those streets with available state or federal funds. We ask for the public’s patience with the paving process and look forward to its successful completion.”

The streets that will be resurfaced include Avenue A from North Street to 20th Street and from 26th Street to the avenue’s terminus at 36th Street; Prospect Avenue from 21st Street to 25th Street; 4th Street from Avenue C to Kennedy Boulevard; 9th Street from Broadway to Avenue C and from Kennedy Boulevard to Avenue A; 11th Street from Kennedy Boulevard to Avenue A; 18th Street from Avenue E to Broadway; 25th Street from Kennedy Boulevard to Avenue C; 38th Street from Broadway to Avenue C; and 39th Street from Broadway to Avenue C.

Additional street-paving work is being planned and will be announced in the near future for additional streets in 2022 and 2023.

Bayonne Residents Need to Wrap Mattresses for Curbside Pick-Up

hearing on block grant

Bayonne Mayor Davis advised Bayonne residents to wrap mattresses that they want to be picked up by sanitation crews. The mattresses can be wrapped either in plastic or in mattress covers. Mayor Davis said,

“Due to current health concerns, the mattresses must be wrapped for the protection of the sanitation workers.” The Bayonne Department of Public Works estimates that Bayonne residents dispose of five to twelve mattresses per week.

This issue has arisen recently, because some sanitation workers have bypassed unwrapped mattresses. City officials want to make sure that residents set out wrapped mattresses for curbside pick-up, so that they will be picked up and not become eyesores on local streets.
