ANGELINI: LOCH ARBOUR IS A SMALL TOWN
WITH A BIG PROBLEM
Assembly Republican Deputy Conference Leader Mary Pat Angelini, R-Monmouth, said tonight’s special meeting in Loch Arbour Village to discuss the reported $700,000 severance payout taxpayers may have to pay its municipal clerk if the town merges is a glaring example of how overly generous fringe benefit packages can affect a town and its future.
The separation package includes a payout of two weeks for every year of the clerk’s 23 years of employment and a $66,000 payout for 150 days of unused sick and vacation time.
“I hope Loch Arbour’s commissioners will conduct a thorough review of their legal options and use all the available resources in order to resolve this issue in the best interests of taxpayers,” said Angelini. “Residents in Loch Arbour already shoulder an enormous tax burden and this pitfall could derail their efforts at exploring shared services or merging. The people in Loch Arbour are dealing with the impact of one superstorm, they don’t need another one impacting their financial situation.”
Angelini re-stated the need to reform the policy granting a payout for unused sick time upon a public employee’s retirement. She is a co-sponsor of A-2495, which would eliminate this fringe benefit. Angelini’s running mate in District 11, Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande, is the bill’s primary sponsor.
