BERGENFIELD, N.J. -- The borough’s recreation director has been found in violation of state ethics law, NorthJersey.com reported.

Robert Gillman, who was a councilman at the time, acted improperly when he voted to approve $300,000 for a building to be used by the Bergenfield Police Athletic League, the board ruled, according to the story. The Local Finance Board ruled that vote and others to pay vouchers of more than $16,000 for the P.A.L.were improper, according to NorthJersey.com.

Gillman participated in a unanimous council vote to introduce the $300,000 bonding ordinance, but didn’t participate in the final vote, leading some residents to complain that there was a conflict of interest, NorthJersey.com said.
