CLARKSTOWN, N.Y. -- A nine-year-employee with the Clarkstown Code Enforcement division has been suspended without pay on multiple disciplinary charges, according to town officials.
The employee, unnamed by the town, worked as a code enforcement officer and was paid $87,000 a year.
"I cannot comment on this matter other than to say an employee was suspended and served with disciplinary charges," Town Attorney Lion Sciarretta said.
Although Sciarretta would not comment on personnel matters, Supervisor George Hoehmann said: "The era of no-show jobs died with the last administration. And I will continue fighting to ensure the people get what they are entitled to -- good and honest government."
Hoehmann added that Clarkstown has a great staff who work hard, but he was elected to clean up town government and no matter who you are or what position you hold you are paid by people and work for the people.
