Administration - 11/16/2018 2:11:00 PM

Mayor Jimmy Davis announced that the Bayonne Department of Public Works responded to the snowstorm of November 15, 2018 with fifteen vehicles that plowed and salted the streets.  The City of Bayonne used 230 tons of salt, and Board of Education vehicles used 12 tons, for a total of 242 tons.   The City has about 600 tons of salt on hand left over from last year. 

Pre-storm weather forecasts suggested that there would be one to three inches of snow.  The actual amount of snow that fell was five to six inches.   Mayor Davis observed, “The weather forecasts turned out to be wrong. The City of Bayonne was prepared with trucks and salt, so we were able to respond to a storm that was more severe than expected.”

Bayonne’s thirtieth annual Interfaith Thanksgiving service has been scheduled for Monday, November 19, 2018 at 7:00 p.m., at St. Vincent DePaul Church.  The church is located at 47th Street and Avenue C.  The event is sponsored by Bayonne’s Interfaith Clergy Association, and will include clergy from various religious denominations.  Bishop Gregory Cook, the senior chaplain at Bayonne Medical Center, will offer the homily.

Father John Fencik, Pastor of St. Mary’s Orthodox Church and Chairman of the Bayonne Interfaith Clergy, said, “The annual Interfaith Thanksgiving service brings together people of all faiths and those without a religious affiliation.  The event provides an opportunity to thank God and to celebrate our community’s religious and cultural diversity.  We ask members of the public attending the service to bring canned food items to help Bayonne’s people in need.” 

The service will include musical selections by St. Vincent’s Youth Choir, St. Vincent’s Senior Choir, and St. Peter’s Prep Vox.  Musical accompaniment will be provided by Tom Norton, the St. Vincent’s Church organist.   

A light reception will follow the service.
