Atlantic City Water Plant Manager Abruptly Resigns
The turmoil at the Atlantic City Municipal Utilities is continuing.
Following the unprecedented removal of former Board Chairman John Devlin, we have confirmed that ACMUA Plant Manager Anthony Palombi has abruptly resigned.
Atlantic City Municipal Utilities Board Member Nynel Langford confirmed to us that Palombi has resigned, but, was not willing to discuss the circumstances surrounding Palombi‘s resignation.
We have been advised that Palombi possessed the highest levels of certification at the ACMUA.
In other news, we have also confirmed that there was another pipe breakage that occurred last Friday, February 11, 2022, in Atlantic City.
In many respects, it was a repeat of a previous pipe breakage that we reported about on January 27, 2022.
Just like then, we have been advised that the Atlantic City Police Department once again could not reach ACMUA Executive Director Michael Armstrong or anyone else in real time during the pipe break.
Despite having a major pipe breakage so recently, that resulted in water spilling in sub freezing conditions for hours, the ACMUA didn’t tighten their emergency communication plan.
An Atlantic City Police source confirmed that they were able to reach ACMUA Board Member Nynel Langford last Friday night.
Here is a link to our previous extensive coverage regarding a major pipe break with photos:
Here are two other ACMUA articles from the past regarding the removal of John Devlin.
We reached Palombi for comment. He was respectful and polite, but, unwilling to discuss his resignation with us at this time.
Multiple Atlantic City Hall sources have advised that current Atlantic City Board of Education Member Pat Bailey will replace Devlin on the ACMUA Board.
The ACMUA board position pays $ 6,000 per-year, which many residents and taxpayers are unaware of.
This is a developing story. We have calls in to ACMUA Board Member Glen Banfield and others, to obtain additional comments regarding this matter.
Updates as warranted.
