Atlantic City MUA Officials Void Bonuses, Claiming it a Mistake

Last Edited:

Atlantic City's Municipal Utilities Authority, or MUA, passed a vote that voids a controversial resolution to give $3,000 gifts to its board of directors, a resolution that MUA officials insist never existed.

Resolution 199, which stipulated that board members with at least five years of service receive payments in December, was signed by Vice-Chair Gary Hill on November 28th and posted on the MUA's website.

After news of the resolution came to light, MUA members have said it was never intended to be voted on, and its posting was a processing error. Instead, the water authority claims it meant to provide the bonuses to outgoing board members, something it has always done.

Hill stated that he mistakenly signed the wrong resolution.
