Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn A. Murray announced Thursday that James Ryan, the Irvington superintendent of streets and sewers, faces corruption charges.

The 46-year-old resident of Washington Township in Warren County is accused of using two township construction vehicles for his business, Amber Sewer Cleaning.

Prosecutors say Ryan did a sewer replacement job at a private home on Nov. 11, 2010, which was the paid municipal holiday of Veterans Day.

It was not immediately clear who is representing him.

Authorities say Ryan has been released pending an April 25 court appearance.
