The city of Hoboken responded to the arrests of several municipal workers, as mentioned in a previous news item. City Hall's statement is thus:
Three Hoboken municipal employees were arrested earlier today by the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office. The City is currently in the process of obtaining all of the documents relating to the arrests.
Based on the information already obtained, one individual is being suspended without pay pending disposition of the criminal charges. The City will take appropriate action regarding the other complaints when it receives official notice of the charges.
In reaction to today's events, Acting Mayor Zimmer stated: "Any criminal conduct by municipal employees is completely unacceptable and I take this matter extraordinarily seriously. I have ordered all City officials to cooperate with law enforcement in any way required."
We will provide further updates as events warrant.
