JERSEY CITY — A five-letter word is causing heartburn in every neighborhood in Jersey City.
The citywide property revaluation, Jersey City’s first since 1988, is finally underway, with inspectors knocking on doors, homeowners nervous about what their tax bills will be next year and Mayor Steve Fulop urging calm.
Fulop faced a roomful of grim-faced Downtown residents on March 28 to tell them what to expect.
“I know there’s a lot of fear because people assume the worst,” he told them before adding, “It’s going to be disruptive. I don’t want to mince words.”
