PATERSON, N.J. (AP) - A former Passaic Valley Sewerage Commission official has admitted having agency staffers perform work at the homes of his mother and his girlfriend while they were on agency time.

State authorities say Anthony Ardis pleaded guilty Wednesday to conspiracy to commit official misconduct. They will recommend that the 62-year-old Paterson man receive probation and a county jail term of up to 364 days when he’s sentenced July 15.

Ardis also will have to pay restitution to the agency, although that amount has not yet been determined. He also will be barred from holding public employment in New Jersey.

Ardis held several positions during his tenure at the agency, serving as a commissioner, director of management services and its chief ethics officer.
