Pursues Another Termination of Employment for Latest Infraction & Will Install GPS Systems in City Vehicles
JERSEY CITY â€“Â With only ten days into office,Â Mayor Steven M. FulopÂ is quickly learning and aggressively pushing to change the culture of City Hall employees with termination charges for any employee violating policy and breaking the law.
