NJ Says: Gloucester City Violated Workers Sick Leave Law

CNBNews Point of View Those governing the City of Gloucester City, have lead the residents to believe that Great Things Are Happening in their City floating the above banner on city stationary for the last three decades and on other city owned literature and internet portals. Yet as we have stated before we keep looking for one thing that residents can point too and say with pride that "Great Things Are Really Happening in our City". It certainly hasn't happened with our property taxes. Since 2018 Gloucester City has been listed in the top 30 communities with the highest property taxes in the state of NJ. There was a slight reduction this year. But, the property taxes are still too much. Especially when you consider that Gloucester City is so poor it qualifieds to be an Abbott School District, one of 31. The City is so distressed it qualifies to... Read more →


CNBNews Point of View: What Would Those Running For Gloucester City Council Do?

Looking at the parking problems near the Middle School mentioned by Mr. Eberle and the derelict vehicles parked throughout the west side of Gloucester City, the question is why those running our City allow these problems to exist. City ordinances were passed in the 1960s designating the police and later the Housing Authority, to enforce that legislation. But in most cases nothing is done. Unless you complain loud enough, then and only then will action be taken. Earlier this year, we pointed out similar vehicles violating the city statutes parked on Little Ridgeway Street. Thankfully after that problem was made public the issue was resolved. The 30-plus police officers and the six Housing officers can't tell us they don't see the violations as they are in plain view. Likewise, the seven incumbent members of the City Council can't use that excuse either. It would be nice to know what the... Read more →

The Penn Medicine | Virtua Health First Proton Therapy Center Opening in Voorhees

Fewer than 50 in the United States.

UPDATED WITH PHOTOS AND NEW NUMBERS William E. Cleary Sr. | CNBNewsnet GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ (CNBNewsnet)(September 21, 2022)--Twelve years ago, we looked at the housing market in the City of Gloucester City. Former Mayor William James and the council were worried as blight was absorbing sections of the city. They were concerned too about the number of homes converted into apartments. CNBNews graphic file The numbers today reveal that rental properties have increased from 1946 to 2,987 in 2022; or 1,041 more, according to records acquired in an OPRA request by CNBNews.

Know all this before your building inspection

Home inspections have evolved into an essential component of the home-buying process. Whether you select an appointment viewing, an open viewing, or a combination of the two, a viewing brings you one step closer to selling. The benefit of a Building inspection is that the seller shows as many people as possible, and the more people visit your house, the higher your chances of selling. What exactly is a pre-sale building inspection? A pre-sale inspection is a third-party evaluation of the condition of a property. The building inspector's report indicates any crucial faults or maintenance concerns on the property. It is vital to remember that a pre-sale inspection is not a value but focuses on accurately reporting the physical condition of the property. A preview is a vital component of the property purchasing process since it allows the buyer to examine the property's condition before making an offer. Pre-sales inspections... Read more →


THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY: JAY WALKING

Dorothy Philbin | CNBNews If you are young you might not remember Jay Leno, host of the Tonight Show. He would go to a major street corner and ask people questions about current events, government, or whatever. Usually, the answers were not just wrong but shockingly wrong. I met Jay a few years back and asked him "how many 'normal' people d o you have to edit out to get the results you air?" His answer: very few. Jesse Watters has taken to doing much the same thing, tonight's interviews were in New York and the subject was the Fourth of July. Many of these questions come from the citizenship test.

Many Shipping Ports in New Jersey Are Facing Logistics Crisis Due To Labor Shortages

Container ship docked at Holt Logistics Terminal, Gloucester City NJ (CNBNewsnet file photo 2007) (The Center Square) – Americans buying 30% more goods from overseas has helped create a logistics crisis at ports caused by a labor shortage and practices of ocean carriers that exacerbate the problems.

DOROTHY PHILBIN | CNBNewsnet GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ --Years ago, I took a Criminal Justice course at St. Joseph's University.

Many times, I read on Gloucester City Facebook pages that this is not the city in which many of us grew up. I've lived here for 70 years, and I can attest that... Read more →
