The SCI reports that Harrison paid out over$1.8 million inseverence pay to its employees. Who got the money and how much? Is it still in the contracts to pay money for unused sick and vacation time? How many layoffs will this cause because Harrrison won't be gettting its 5.7 million in aid from NJ.

You better watch out, you better be good, Chris Cristie is coming to town. He knows if you have been good or bad and who is not and who has their hand in the cookie jar.

A Police Chief retired with a huge severence pay and then went to work for the Board of ED. Guess who that was?

His name, JT, is featured in today's Jersey Journal. He got a pension of $93,000 and $305,000 in severence pay. That wasn't enough. The Mayor then gave him a job as truant officer in the school system because he put off his retirement date so that the present Chief could be appointed without a test over more qualified officers. Greed is the game.

Today's Jersey Journal named JT as getting 305,000 in severence pay in 2005. He also gets 93,000 in pension and now works for the Harrison Board of Ed checking on out of town students. How much can he eat?

For retirees, fat checks for unused vacation, sick time

Thursday, December 03, 2009

Some findings pertaining to Hudson County communities in the State Commission of Investigation report on fiscal waste in municipal government that were released Tuesday:

HARRISON

23 public employees who retired between 2005 and 2008 collected $1.8 million in combined payouts for unused sick and vacation leave.

In 2005, former Police Chief John Trucillo alone cashed in more than $305,000 worth of unused sick and vacation leave.

In response to a DCA recommendation to curtail payouts, Harrison granted its officers unlimited annual sick time in exchange for ending lump-sum payouts at retirement. Harrison's paid Fire Department and civilian municipal personnel were not included in the arrangement.

Former Administrative Clerk/Deputy Municipal Clerk Marion Borek retired with a check for $241,851, the bulk of it for 881 days of accumulated unused sick leave.

HOBOKEN

From 2004 to 2009, retiring Hoboken employees collected $3.87 million worth of terminal leave, including individual payments as high as $97,000; and $3.14 million in accumulated vacation leave.

Hoboken's former police chief Carmen LaBruno received a retirement package of $350,000 - $125,000 in accrued unused vacation leave, $150,000 in terminal leave and $75,000 in unused accumulated compensatory time. LaBruno's final salary as police chief was $210,794.

Hoboken police and fire personnel, in addition to lump-sum leave redemptions, are entitled by contract to cash stipends at retirement - $2,000 for rank and-file police officers who retire with less than 28 years of service and $2,000 for firefighters with less than 30 years.

Also, uniformed and civilian employees in Hoboken routinely receive longevity raises ranging from 2 percent to as much as 18 percent per year on top of regular salary adjustments. Depending on the employee group, they also qualify variously for a mix of special leave benefits, including personal days off for private events, such as weddings and baptisms.

UNION CITY

All civilian municipal employees receive one day's leave at full pay every year for Christmas shopping.

Civilian employees qualify for a $200 cash stipend for using no sick leave in a year, $150 for using only one sick day and $100 for using just two sick days.

WEST NEW YORK

Police officers receive time off not only for weddings but also for baptisms, confirmations and first Holy Communions, provided they take an active role in the ceremony.

He's a triple dipper. 305,000 severence pay, 93,400 Police Pension, 12,243 fom teachers pension fund. But that' not enough. Mcdonough gave him a job at the Harrison BOfEd as a truant officer.
