Hillsdale borough administrator Jon DeJoseph resigned during a special council meeting Monday, several borough officials confirmed. His final day in the position was Tuesday.

DeJoseph will continue to work as borough CFO through January to work on the temporary budget and will receive several payments from the borough as part of an agreement for his resignation.

DeJoseph said he could not comment on the terms of the agreement.

Council President Tom Kelley also said he couldn't comment on the agreement.

Mayor Max Arnowitz also declined to comment on the agreement, but said he believed DeJoseph had done a good job as administrator, winning grants for projects like road repaving and improvements to borough hall. DeJoseph also was responsible for obtaining a piece of steel from the World Trade Center which was included in the new 9/11 memorial in Veterans Park, Arnowitz said.

"I think Jon DeJoseph did an excellent job as administrator," Arnowitz said. "He accomplished a lot of things."

DeJosph was first appointed administrator in early 2012, Community Life reported at the time. He had previously served on the council before taking the position.

Kelley said he expected officials would discuss their search for a new administrator at the reorganization meeting, which will be held at 12:30 p.m. Sunday in borough hall.

Kelly is a tool, read his comments in community life. This guy is dangerous. Vote him out next time. DeJoseph did nothing but good for Hillsdale. all Kelly does is act like a fool pushing his ego on others. He is like the two ousted clowns from township

Don't the taxpayers get to know how much they're paying for this gentleman to slip out? Wasn't there a DeJoseph years ago that was head of the DPW?

Hey Pete. For a guy who has contributed nothing productive to your community, you sure have a lot to say. Keep your nose out of other peoples business and go back to kneeling before the political clown show in your town.

You should post with your real name if you have something to say. "Noah". Clever but cowardly.
