WESTAMPTON, N.J. (AP) - The Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office is looking into an allegation that a town committee held a special meeting without giving the required 48 hours’ notice.

Resident Gil Gehin-Scott, who has run unsuccessfully for the committee in Westampton, made the allegation regarding a meeting held on Dec. 12.

He says notice of the meeting did not appear in the Burlington County Times until the day it was held.

But township solicitor George Saponaro tells the newspaper (https://bit.ly/1zuC6hy_ ) the town has proof it sent the notice to its advertising department on Dec. 10, complying with the law.

The special meeting was held to hire Jason Carty as director of emergency medical services and fire chief.



The vote committee hired him by a 3-2 vote.
