TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A former official of the Passaic Valley Sewerage Commission has admitted he had employees do renovations at a former PVSC superintendent’s home while on agency time.

Paul Bazela pleaded guilty Thursday to theft by unlawful taking, a third-degree crime.

He admitted having subordinate employees finish renovations at the home of former PVSC Superintendent for Special Services Kevin Keogh.

A Passaic County jury previously convicted Bazela of misconduct and other charges related to employees doing personal work for a different agency commissioner.

The state will recommend Bazela be sentenced to three years each on the guilty plea and the guilty verdict, with the sentences to be served concurrently.

His sentencing is scheduled for May.
