Paramus NJ, A late Thursday afternoon, 06/15, fire in a computer server room at Bergen Community College’s Paramus campus forced the temporary evacuation of a building and warranted the response of Borough of Paramus and County of Bergen HazMat teams due to the activation of a fm200 chemical agent fire suppression system. A Paramus EMS ambulance crew was called to stand by at the fire scene, but was shortly released by fire department supervisors after it was determined that no one was injured when the suppression system activated. Damage was reported to at least one (1) computer server. Bergen County Sheriff’s officers were also observed at the scene. Paramus FD and Rescue Squad personnel were active within the fire building.

N.J. Supreme Court denies motion to block raises for Bergen County sheriff’s officers


N.J. Supreme Court denies motion to block raises for Bergen County sheriff’s officers

SEPTEMBER 29, 2014, 7:24 PM    LAST UPDATED: MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2014, 7:32 PM

Bergen County Executive Kathleen Donovan is facing another defeat in her long-running bid to derail a contract negotiated by Sheriff Michael Saudino for his officers, with the state Supreme Court refusing to allow further delay in paying out raises to the union.

The court decision to deny the motion for a stay is one in a string of losses on the matter for the county executive, who remains hopeful the state’s top court will ultimately hear the case.

“This kind of money is just unconscionable for us as a county to be paying off,” Donovan said Monday during a visit to The Record’s Editorial Board, declaring “the case is not over.”

But sheriffs and corrections officers of PBA Local 134 are expected to soon begin seeing some of the millions of dollars due to them under a four-year-pact Donovan earlier deemed “reckless spending.”

“It’s been a long battle for us and this was the top, this was the Supreme Court making their decision and denying her the stay,” said Marcelo Hagopian, union president.

The administration says more than $8.6 million is now owed under the contract, which covers the time period from January 2011 through end of this year. Donovan said they’ll be paying the officers in stages, perhaps one year every four weeks.
