Parsippany Council Orders Immediate Financial Audit Into Excessive Spending on Computer Firm


PARSIPPANY—The Parsippany Council has formally given the green light for a forensic auditor to move in and investigate monies Township taxpayers so far paid to a computer firm independently hired by township attorney John Inglesino without Council approval.

During the contentious regularly scheduled meeting last week (January 13, 2015), Councilman Lou Valori made good on his promise in comments made to Parsippany Focus that he would call for an independent forensic audit of the mounting bills Parsippany has been paying to Aurora Information and Security Risk based in New York City.  Aurora was hired in February 2013 to disk image the workplace hard drive of former Police Captain James Carfi.   When the council was notified four months after the firm’s hiring, nearly $50,000 had already been billed to the Township by Aurora through Inglesino’s law firm.

Last week, it was revealed that at least an additional $220,000 has been billed by Aurora since (see voucher).

“When I first became a Councilman in January 2014, at my very first meeting John [Inglesino] told us that approximately $80,000 had been spent so far between Aurora and Inglesino’s firm”, Councilman Louis Valori told Parsippany Focus.   “Here we are one year later, and we just found out that Aurora billed the town an additional $220,000 and it has been indicated to me that their bills alone are approaching $500,000.”

At it’s last meeting, the Council voted unanimously to vote for an independent forensic investigation. For more, visit Taxpayers pay Inglesino firm $600,000 and growing over dead-end Captain Carifi investigation.
