Two employees of the City's Construction Code Dept. enjoyed a $35/hour salary last year, at their department head's discretion, despite it being in excess of the salary ordinance for their jobs.
According to a report filed by the State-hired audit firm, Wiss & Co., the ordinance, which doesn't give an hourly rate, limits compensation for the two positions of $27,172.00. But during 2008, the two employees were paid $40,792.50 and $35,770.00 respectively.
The auditors recommended that ordinances for hourly employees contain hourly rates or modify maximum salary to conform with work load requirements.
The entire 86-page audit report, complete with photos of Asbury Park, is available from the Community Affairs Dept. web site.
