EDISON - An investigation into the Passaic Valley Sewerage Commission that began last fall has led to three arrests that took place earlier today.

According to a news release, the three officials arrested are Anthony Ardis, 56, of Paterson, Kevin Keogh, 45, of Roseland, and Chester Mazza, 69, of Totowa.

As Kane in Your Corner explains, the investigation isn't over yet. The attorney general's office accuses the three officials that were arrested today of forcing employees to do personal repairs or home improvements for them during work hours.

State Attorney General Paula Dow says "these public officials treated subordinates as if they were almost their own personal piggy banks and personal handymen."

The arrests took place on the same day that Wayne Forrest, the PVSC executive director, officially took action against an example of waste that Kane in Your Corner exposed last year, PVSC's sky-high salaries. More than 80 PVSC employees earned more than $100,000 a year. Forrest is slashing salaries back to where they were two years ago.
