Fligor Named New Harbor Head; Resigns From Council

first_img“John is leaving huge shoes to fill,” Fligor said. “There was bay water and boats that floated all the way up to the highway during Sandy. And John had things back up and running in nine months. You can’t ever be completely prepared for an event like Sandy. And God forbid anything like that ever happens again. But I’m part of great team in this town. And we’ll push along, because we have to, because the marina is important to our community.” The marina has more than 700 boat slips and Hubeny said it was close to 100 percent capacity in the 2019 season. The marina operates with a more than $6 million budget and generates $1.5 million in revenue from boat slip rentals for the borough’s tax base. At a meeting Sept. 25, the council appointed Kerri Kennedy to fill his unexpired term. Hubeny said the selection process was rigorous. Fligor’s application was one of 20 the borough received after the position was advertised in various local, county and state newspapers, and online on the New Jersey Marine Trades Association website. “I appreciate the council’s support and I just hope I’m everything you think I am. I’ve served on this council for 18 years… This is a great town. Take care of it,” Fligor said to the council. Fligor, who grew up working on boats in the marina and has had four of his own stored there over the years, will lead one of only eight municipally owned and operated marinas in New Jersey. It’s the single largest of that ilk from Maine to Florida, according to Hubeny. Fligor has served as a councilman for the better part of two decades and has volunteered his time with various organizations for the last 23, including the Atlantic Highlands Historical Society and the Harbor Commission. ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS – Louis Fligor’s eyes welled up at a recent borough council meeting when the governing body voted unanimously to name the longtime elected official the municipality’s new harbor manager. But resigning his seat on the council to take the harbor manager position was an emotional moment for Fligor. Atlantic Highlands does not currently have a nepotism policy, but borough administrator Adam Hubeny quickly dismissed the notion. “(Fligor’s) experience might actually be a positive despite the optics,” borough resident Tucker Snedeker told The Two River Times. “The real problem is he got his son-in-law a job at the harbor a few years ago. So how do you get a fair shake as a fellow employee and peer? Who gets the day off or the bonus or the promotion or the better work assignment?” center_img Fligor, 58, officially took the reins of the Marina Sept. 27, and will earn an annual starting salary of $62,500. “Lou’s son-in-law works at the harbor, but there’s insulation there,” Hubeny explained to residents at the Aug. 13 council meeting, noting that all harbor employees report to dockmaster James Osborn. “Mr. Osborne has (worked at the marina) for 42 years. The dockmaster reports to Jim Phillips, who is our DPW director. And if there’s a personnel matter, they will report to me. Normally they would report to the harbor manager, but in this case, if it involves Lou’s son-in-law, they’ll come to me.” The selection committee then interviewed seven candidates and whittled that field down to three potential choices. After a subsequent round of interviews, the committee decided that Fligor checked all of the boxes. Though borough lands are nearly completely built out, Fligor hopes to implement a series of floating boat slips situated in marina waters that will increase capacity and revenue. “It’s something that can be done. It’s part of the vision. But that will take some time,” Fligor said. Though the governing body may have given its vote of confidence, Fligor’s appointment comes with pushback from some residents who wonder if nepotism played a role. According to councilman Steve Borracchia, one of the reasons Fligor was selected for the position is because of his vision to expand the marina’s footprint and make it a more profitable utility. Longtime Atlantic Highlands councilman and community volunteer Louis Fligor has been appointed harbor manager at the marina.Photo by Chris Rotolo Fligor will succeed former harbor manager John Amici who accepted the position in July 2009, not long before the Bayshore was slammed by historic weather events like Hurricane Irene in 2011 and Super Storm Sandy in 2012. “This has to be the least political thing I’ve seen happen in Atlantic Highlands since I’ve been coming to meetings,” said council member Lori Hohenleitner. “Everyone on the harbor commission was fully confident that this was the best person for the job. I’m not necessarily going to be sitting up here for the rest of my life, but if I’ve made one decision that really showed the true character of our town, I’m confident this is one of them.” last_img read more
