James J. Daly, 42, of Edgewater Park, admitted that he illegally received funds between July and October 2011.

Daly was a former Edgewater Park Mayor and the 2011 Edgewater Park Citizen of the Year. He became chief of the squad in 2004.

In addition to being chief, he took on the responsibility of overseeing the squad’s finances after the organization’s treasurer became ill in May 2011.

Daly will receive probation, forfeit his emergency medical technician license and be ineligible to hold public office in New Jersey under the terms of the plea agreement. He must also make restitution in the amount of $4,792.

The sentencing for Daly is scheduled for Dec. 11.
