LITTLE EGG HARBOR – The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), has opened an investigation into the affairs of the Little Egg Harbor Township municipal government, with agents having visited the township’s municipal building on multiple occasions this fall, OCP has learned via confidential sources.
Township officials have likely been walking on eggshells as Little Egg Harbor town hall has seen several surprise visits from both federal and county investigators over the past few months, as a part of what appears to be an investigation by the FBI working in conjunction with the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office into township business, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the investigation who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
Investigators Take Interest In Little Egg Harbor Town Hall’s Troubles
Our sources were not yet able to ascertain just who is the target of any investigation, but according to them, one item that has been a point of interest for the investigators working the case has been the allegations contained within the “Greitz” report, which this website published in August, in which an attorney from the township’ s labor counsel concluded there was “no question” that Little Egg Harbor Code Enforcement Officer Michael Fromosky, an extended family member of Ocean County Freeholder Jack Kelly, violated the township’s sexual harassment policy by making inappropriate comments about a female township employee and the police chief.
Per longstanding United States Department of Justice policy, the FBI does not confirm or deny the existence of active investigations via its official channels.
This would not be the first time the FBI has investigated Little Egg Harbor’s officials. It has previously been reported here that an arrangement where Little Egg Harbor’s MUA executive director received sports tickets from an appointed engineering firm abruptly stopped after they both learned of an FBI investigation into that entity, according to allegations contained within a leaked police report.
