TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Four former employees of the Passaic Valley Sewerage Commission have been sentenced on misconduct charges.

All admitted having commission employees perform home improvements and repairs for them during work hours.

Acting Attorney General Christopher Porrino said Tuesday former superintendent for special services Kevin Keogh of Roseland was sentenced to five years in prison.

Former carpentry shop foreman Paul Bazela of Northvale received a three-year sentence for authorizing employees to perform work for Keogh and another supervisor.

The third supervisor, Anthony Ardis of Paterson, received 90 days in county jail and one year’s probation.

Former assistant superintendent Chester Mazza of Totowa received a year of probation.

The sewerage commission manages the collection and disposal of wastewater for parts of Bergen, Passaic, Essex and Hudson counties.
