JERSEY CITY AND BEYOND -- Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop does not have the authority to halt the revaluation of homes said Donald J. Kenny, of the Hudson County Board of Taxation, on July 9.

In a report to the Hudson County Freeholders, Kenny said the Fulop and the Jersey City Council can request a delay, as it did last year, but it is up to the tax assessor and the county Board of Taxation to recommend a delay to the state.

He said Fulop has the power to not fund the revaluation process, but this would likely result in action by the state Attorney General to force the revaluation to continue.

Fulop ordered a halt to the revaluation process after taking office on July 1.
