In an agreement signed on July 1, 2014, Clifton City Councilman Joseph C. Kolodziej accepted a three year stint as the Borough Clerk and Administrator of the Borough of Emerson.  Under the agreement, which is on-line here, Kolodziej will receive $125,000 from Emerson for a three-year term ending July 14, 2017.  That annual salary will jump to $130,000 once Kolodziej receives his State certification as a Registered Municipal Clerk.

The agreement, however, provides for a $500 per month reduction in Kolodziej’s salary until he “resigns as Clifton Council Member.”  According to the agreement, “this resignation must take place no later than 6 months after July 7, 2014.”
