THE OFFICE OF MAYOR JAMES M. DAVIS 100th DAY BRIEFING | The City of Bayonne, NJ: "At one of my first public meetings I stated, “The Bridge will be built.” That is as true today as it was nearly one hundred days ago. However, that does not mean that city residents will need to suffer in silence. My administration holds Bi-weekly Meetings with the Port Authority in order to monitor construction progress. My feeling is that with a project this massive the flow of information is vital to its continuance. Along those lines, we have requested that the Port Authority hold periodic Public Meetings with concerned residents. This ensures that there are levels of accountability, both to my administration and to the Bayonne public at-large.
Along with public input on the Bridge project, come the more objective layers of accountability: data and analysis. To ensure the health, safety, and well being of Bayonne residents, the city has hired two engineering firms to conduct Environmental Testing and offer Structural Assessments of homes in the zone directly impacted by the on-going construction."
