NJ Official Calls in Sick, Works Other Jobs

Officials are investigating after records show a part-time public employee called in sick in one northern New Jersey town while working in five other towns.

Records show Frank Recanati was out sick from his job as West New York’s plumbing sub-code inspector 33 times in 2010 and 2011.

But the 47-year-old was working at his other public jobs on 17 of the days.

Recanati tells The Jersey Journal there were plenty of times he called out because of lingering back issues or kidney stones.

Recanati earned $131,455 last year from the six municipalities where he works part-time as a construction official. West New York Mayor Felix Roque tells the newspaper he hasn’t heard complaints about Recanati.
