Cooling Centers and Water Facilities for City Residents Open for Residents to Cool Off During Excessive Weekend Heat 

Jersey City is opening three cooling sites from Friday, August 12th through Sunday, August 14th as temperatures are expected to reach into the high 90’s.

The City’s two senior centers - the Joseph Connors Senior Center, at 28 Paterson Street and the Maureen Collier Senior Center, at 335 Bergen Avenue, will be open as well from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.

Neighbor'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, btw,  is #222
on the Hit Parade!
