Greg’s List: Places to Donate this Holiday Season

By Greg Kelly

 

I’ve heard genuine praise — along with masses of web traffic — for my “Greg’s List: Things to Do in Monmouth County this Weekend.” The list has been published here at More Monmouth Musings prior to every weekend for going on 7 years now. I don’t think I’ve missed a weekend.

 

Compliments about the list include: “There’s nothing like it on the web.” “I don’t start my weekend without it.” “It really tells me what’s happening.” “It’s a fantastic resource.” “I get it all in one stop.” “It’s amazing all the good stuff to do for Monmouth County weekends.” “It’s the most complete things-to-do list around.” Read the rest of this entry »

How Monmouth County Legislators Voted On Busting The Property Tax Cap

The New Jersey Senate and Assembly passed legislation on Monday that allows school districts that have lost state funding for their budgets and are spending less annually than what the state considers adequate to raise property taxes above the 2% cap without voters’s consent.  The 2% cap was the hallmark reform of the Christie administration.  The cap busting legislation expires after the 2024-2025 school year.

The bill awaits Governor Phil Murphy’s signature before it becomes law.  Murphy has indicated he is opposed to busting the property tax cap, preferring to raise income taxes on millionaires.

Of the legislators who represent parts of Monmouth County, only Senators Vin Gopal (D-11) and Sam Thompson (R-12) voted in favor of the bill.
