JC, UC may get state aid infusion

JERSEY CITY AND UNION CITY — Two local towns that are preparing their 2009-2010 budgets may get a bit of extra aid during these times, even though many cities have lost state aid this year.
According to NJ.com: “The Local Finance Board is scheduled to vote Wednesday on aid to five cities. Board Chairwoman Susan Jacobucci recommended $27 million for Paterson, $2.5 million for Bridgeton, $11 million for Union City, $67 million for Camden and $14 million for Jersey City.”
Jersey City in particular is furloughing workers due to their budget deficit. For more on that story, see related stories below.
