SADDLE BROOK, N.J. – Mayor Bob White has issued an executive order forbidding the spouses, children, parents and siblings of elected officials from employment in the township, according to northjersey.com.
The anti-nepotism order, effective since its issuance Monday, comes after the Township Council failed to adopt a similar ordinance, the report said. Relatives of Saddle Brook department and division heads also are precluded from employment by the township under the order.
