The days of commissioners of the Brick Township Municipal Utilities Authority taking taxpayer-funded medical benefits are over, at least for now.

Though all commissioners appointed to the authority’s board, which meets once a month, are eligible for medical benefits that cost in upwards of $30,000 per year, none are taking them, according to a records Shorebeat recently requested. The five-member board is now completely made up of members appointed by the Democrat-led township council, which in its early days holding a majority of seats pledged to appoint members who would not take benefits.

All members of the board are entitled to a $2,500 annual stipend for their service. Those who do not take health benefits are also eligible for a $5,000 waiver bonus. Several members, George Cevasco, Thomas C. Curtis and Susan Lydecker, take the $5,000 waiver payment. Commissioner Gregory M. Flynn takes a $2,481.03 waiver payment. Commissioner James Fozman, who also serves as a township council member, takes neither benefits nor a waiver payment from the MUA, however he does receive medical benefits from his council position.

    Are they vested in pension system for their part time positions?
    Change the regulation or bylaw and legally prohibit all current or future commissioners and part timers from recieving health benefits or pension credits.
    Do it now for the tax payers.
    Make it LAW.
