COOLING CENTERS TO REMAIN OPEN THROUGH WEEKEND ALONG WITH WATER FACILITIES; Three Cooling Sites Open, as Well as All Park Sprinklers and Pools Citywide

Mayor Steven M. Fulop and the Jersey City Office of Emergency Management (OEM) have announced that three cooling centers will remain open through the weekend of August 1st & 2nd. Temperatures are expected to remain in the 90s for the next several days. As long as temperatures continue to exceed 90 degrees, which could last until early next week, the cooling centers will remain open.



The Mary McLeod Bethune Community Center, 140 Martin Luther King Drive, will be open this Saturday and Sunday from from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.,  while both the Joseph Connors Senior Center, at 28 Paterson Street, and the Maureen Collier Senior Center, at 335 Bergen Avenue, will be open Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.


In addition to the Cooling Centers, The Jersey City Free Public Library and its local branches are also available to residents. Locations and hours here.



All residents, especially the elderly, disabled people, pregnant women and children under the age of two are encouraged to STAY INDOORS or take advantage of the cooling facilities if necessary.



“We are anticipating several days of high heat and humidity and will be opening our cooling centers for residents who need a place to find relief,” said Mayor Fulop. “Residents are reminded to check on seniors and neighbors who may need assistance, and to take advantage of our park sprinklers and pools, which are great places for children and families to cool off.



In addition, all City parks and pools are open for residents to enjoy. For a full schedule of pool and sprinkler locations, please visit: http://jerseycitynj.gov/swimming/sprinklers/

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!
