North Bergen Public Works Indictments Continue
Another employee of the North Bergen Public Works Department has been indicted in an ongoing investigation into corruption at the agency.
The charges against Timothy Grossi, the department’s deputy director, were announced Monday by the state attorney general’s office.
According to the eight-count indictment, the 72-year-old Jersey City resident allegedly ordered employees to perform personal chores for him and others at the expense of taxpayers. He also allegedly had employees work on political campaigns.
It’s not yet known if Grossi has retained a lawyer. He’s the fourth North Bergen DPW staffer to be charged in an ongoing investigation into abuses at the agency.
DPW Superintendent James Wiley, who was supervised by Grossi, pleaded guilty in September to similar charges.
