FMERA Mayors Did Not Violate Confidentiality (Update)

The dark clouds of controversy are starting to swirl around the authority charged with redeveloping the shuttered Fort Monmouth.

According to the Asbury Park Press, the Mayors of Eatontown and Oceanport, who are members of the Fort Monmouth Economic Redevelopment Authority (FMERA), admitted to regularly briefing their council members about confidential FMERA information affecting their towns.

The issue reportedly came to light when Eatontown Mayor Gerald Tarantolo withstood searing criticism for refusing to share FMERA information with his towns Council Members.

However, a FMERA spokesperson says while there is an expectation of confidentiality among FMERA board members, they don’t consider what the Mayors share with their respective councils in executive session a breach of that confidentiality as earlier asserted in published reports.

A spokesperson goes on to say Mayor Michael Mahon of Oceanport and Mayor Michael Skudera of Tinton Falls will not face any consequences for sharing information with their councils and word that sharing such information could be jeopardizing millions of dollars in redevelopment deals is grotesquely exaggerated.
