It is unlawful and unfair that residents are holding parking spots, especially around the schools. Teachers and staff have very limited space for parking. Please address the issue.

Today, the efficiency of the Internet has pushed many services to be available ONLY online. Our ISPs (Internet Service Providers) are the toll booths to the roads of efficient living.
I am increasingly unhappy with the state of the how we get to those roads: the toll booth operators. I don't have much choice in the matter.
I have access to Comcast, Verizon, or a Satellite provider. The Satellite provider is grossly overpriced for what limited service it offers. The low download caps make streaming video or music an impossibly expensive option. Therefore, I really only have Comcast or Verizon to choose from.
In the link below, you can see that Comcast and Verizon both have decreasing speeds when providing Netflix service. I am left with no alternative.
While service is becoming worse, it didn't stop my Verizon FiOS bill from becoming worse. The price was raised by 8 dollars this year.
I have to wonder about Verizon's plans and prices. They seem deliberately set up force me into a corner. I have the slowest plan offered (15Mbps download), but it is expensive and the price keeps increasing. I have felt stuck in a corner since I noticed the changes in their plan in June of 2011. In 2007, the fastest plan (3Mbps download) Verizon offered was available for about 30% less than what I am paying today.
Verizon uses the same price tactics with their wireless service. However, I was able to drop Verizon for a carrier that I’m satisfied with because there many wireless carriers to choose from.
My only real alternative for Internet service is Comcast. But the difference in pricing between Comcast and Verizon isn’t worth switching. Neither offers affordable plans. Comcast offers a more affordable plan than Verizon, but it doesn’t make any sense to reduce my connection bandwidth by 65% for only a 16% reduction in price.
My last concern is that Verizon is not committed to their FiOS customers. In a recent deal with Comcast, Verizon promised not to expand its FiOS service to other markets. If they have that kind of deal, then Verizon may continue to increase prices and Comcast will benefit from any customers Verizon loses as a result.
This is where I am. I’d leave Verizon for Comcast if I didn’t feel manipulated to do so.
If you look at the link again, you can see that Comcast and Verizon are not the only ISPs out there. There are plenty of choices available, just not in Kearny. How can we fix our access to the Internet? How can we improve this essential service and make it more affordable?

ice is beginning to form from all the accumulated snow on the side of the high school in several locations and by the parking lot. What's the name of the company that was recently contracted to remove the snow/ice, it appears some or too much might have been piled against the street walls and with temperatures dropping again, these might lead to more icy/black ice spots. This company should be contracted again to properly remove all snow accumulations from locations where ice has piled up.

Davis Ave from king street to bergen ave was worked on for the new water pumps. The snow storms came, then salt, then plows. It is almost impossible not to avoid an accident along this route. Please repair. Hopefully not a bandaid job.
