Hoboken PEO reinstated after criminal charges dismissed

City of Hoboken announces:


PARKING ENFORCEMENT OFFICER RETURNS TO PARKING UTILITY

Parking Enforcement Officer Kleber Vera has been reinstated on the job after being suspended in November, 2010. Vera was hired by the Parking Utility in February, 2010. He was suspended without pay pending the disposition of the criminal court case against him which touched upon his office. Ultimately all charges were dismissed.

“Mr. Vera and his family went through a very difficult and very public process, and now that the charges against him have been dismissed, I welcome him back as an employee of the City of Hoboken,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer.

“Kleber Vera had a good work record prior to these events, and I’m happy to hear that his charges were dropped,” added Transportation and Parking Director Ian Sacs.
