Pothole Hotline Established for Bayonne

Maintenance - 2/21/2018 11:07:00 AM

Updated: 2/21/18

Mayor Jimmy Davis announced that Bayonne residents and business owners are encouraged to report potholes to the City's Department of Public Works (DPW). Residents can call the potholes in to the Department of Public Works at 201-858-6070.  Potholes may also be reported via e-mail at publicworks@baynj.org. Messages should contain a specific location for each pothole reported. All potholes reported by the public will be addressed within forty-eight hours, weather permitting.

Mayor Davis has directed the DPW to dedicate crews to address the citywide problem of potholes. During 2017, Public Works employees filled 2,446 potholes around Bayonne.  During the third week of January 2018, Public Works crews filled 2,673 potholes.

Potholes develop each year as a result of the stresses that changing weather causes in street surfaces.

“I would like to thank our residents and local business owners for their help in identifying the locations of potholes.  By working together, we can improve the quality of our streets,” Mayor Davis concluded.

Bayonne to Observe International Women’s Day

AAA - 2/20/2018 11:33:00 AM

Mayor James M. Davis and Council President Sharon Ashe-Nadrowski will be organizing Bayonne’s first International Women’s Day.  International Women’s Day is held annually on March 8, 2018.  The day highlights the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. 

A committee overseeing the event has been created, consisting of several of Bayonne’s powerful and successful women: Sharon Ashe-Nadrowski, first woman to serve as City Council President; Jamie Davis, Bayonne Police Department Telecommunicator; Nancy Chiaravalloti, Ph.D. of Neuropsychology and Neuroscience Laboratory and Traumatic Brain Injury Research at Kessler Foundation, and a Professor in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Rutgers - New Jersey Medical School; Jennifer Circkirillo, Teacher; Andrea Delmar, Entrepreneur; Samantha Howard, Director of the Bayonne Economic Opportunity Foundation (B.E.O.F.); Anna Quintela, Former Director of B.E.O.F.; and Alicia Losonczy, Hudson County PTA President.

The event will consist of a luncheon where girls who are high school juniors will be invited to spend a couple of hours with various female leaders and trendsetters in our community. The program will feature a short film portraying various women who have successfully challenged stereotypes and built their own businesses.

“As the first female Council President, I am honored that we are organizing an event highlighting the hardworking women of Bayonne and affording young women the opportunity to be inspired,” said Council President Ashe-Nadrowski. She continued, “I look forward to being a part of a strong community of dedicated women from Bayonne coming together to serve as positive role models for the young women in this town.”

Ashe-Nadrowski added, “Women have to work twice as hard to reach the same spot as men. I want these young women to know that they can do it.  As former congresswoman Shirley Chisholm once said: ‘If they don't give you a seat at the table, bring a folding chair.’”

The first International Women’s Day was celebrated back in 1908 when a group of women marched on the streets of New York, demanding their rights.  Since then, every year on March 8, ,the world joins hands together to support, raise, inspire, and motivate women across all fields of work.
