Three members of the New Jersey’s Ocean City Housing Authority board have resigned apparently because of a dispute stemming from the reimbursement of money for Superstorm Sandy repairs.
Chairman Ed Price, vice chairman Stephen Lalli and commissioner Marlene Sheppard stepped down after the board voted Tuesday night to repay the city nearly $974,000 of the $1.2 million that the city had authorized to repair a low-income housing complex that was destroyed by the storm.
The Press of Atlantic City reports Price released a statement in which he cited the lack of a shared services agreement prior to the repairs, potential conflicts of interest with the previous chairperson and the nature of the construction performed by the city for his resignation.
