Village clerk offered $700K severance package

LOCH ARBOUR, N.J. (AP) -

Commissioners in a tiny Jersey shore town may launch a probe into a nearly $700,000 severance package for the village clerk.

Loch Arbour's former Board of Trustees cut the deal last year with Lorraine Carafa should the Monmouth County town merge with neighboring Allenhurst.

The Asbury Park Press reports the agreement includes 46 weeks of severance pay at $89,000; 150 days of unused vacation and sick days at $66,000; and fully paid lifetime health benefits for Carafa and her spouse totaling $539,000.

The package doesn't include Carafa's pension.

Carafa declined comment.

Loch Arbour, which has 194 residents, is looking to merge with Allenhurst to ease the high cost of sending children to school in Ocean Township.

Commissioners will vote on the probe on Tuesday night.

    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is holding its monthly board meeting, two days after it heard from a panel on what it needs to do to improve its accountability and efficiency and restore public trust.
    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey could rescind a $1-a-year lease for a park-and-ride lot near the Lincoln Tunnel. The agency's chief of real estate and development told a committee Wednesday that it should change a deal made in 2012. Published reports have alleged that former Port Authority chairman David Samson voted to approve the lease even though his law firm did business with New Jersey Transit, which operates the park-and-ride lot.
