Regular trash pick-ups will continue, but alternate side of the street parking will be suspended. Alternate side parking and ticketing will resume on Tuesday, May 26, 2015.

While City offices will be closed, both Police and Fire Departments will remain open and on duty. For all emergencies, residents should call 911. For non-emergencies, residents should call 201-547-5477.

All City offices will resume normal hours beginning at 9:00 am on Tuesday, May 26th.

Mayor Fulop Announces Building Department to Open on Saturdays for Residents and Small Businesses Owners! 

The Building Department will now offer Saturday hours as part of a 30-day pilot program as the Fulop Administration continues to expand services for residents and small business owners. Jersey City is currently the only large city in New Jersey as well as the only municipality in Hudson County offering Saturday Building Department hours.

The office will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays beginning this Saturday, April 18, 2015. If demand is consistently high for the weekend hours, the Saturday Building Department pilot – which makes the process easier for residents and also encourages building that supports the local economy – may be expanded to include inspections and other in-field services.Read More

Want To Know What Ordinance Your Municode Logo 90Neighbor's Blasting Music Falls Under? Look No Further, My Friend, The Municipal Code Has The Answers!
The Jersey City Municipal Code (Code) is a
compilation of local laws and legislation
 adopted by the governing body of the City.

Over the long course of Jersey City’s history, the Code
has required constant updates, which are currently being
done by the Municipal Code Corporation.

Extremely user friendly, the Code is organized alphabetically by
subject & outlines the duties and responsibilities of all those who
live, work, visit, conduct business and/or provide services
 in Jersey City. 

The noise ordinance, by the way,  is #222 on the Hit Parade!
