WATCH VIDEO & Listen to Podcast. > City Council of Atlantic City drained a little more of the swamp… and voted NO. They denied local socialite Gary Hill with getting another 5 yr MUA / AC Water Company board-member term. The fiscally responsible vote went down on Wednesday evening, Jan 25, inside Council chambers.
This coveted MUA / Municipal Utilities Authority position costs Atlantic City taxpayers $36,000 annually.
For the past 10 years, Mr. Hill, who also serves as a CRDA board member, received an annual $6,000 MUA / salary. In addition, Mr. Hill has enjoyed a platinum healthcare package for himself and his husband, ex AC Councilman; John Schultz.

If re-appointed, the MBCA & Schultz-Hill Foundation executive would have been grandfathered into another 5 year MUA term that includes full healthcare. Since 2011, health-care is no longer offered to part-time municipal personnel in AC.
On the Jan. 27 edition of the ‘Hurley in the Morning‘ radio show, Harry Hurley shared this news with his listening audience.
AC Councilman George Tibbitt called in to discuss this failed MUA resolution.
WPG’s Hurley calls this audio clip: “seven minutes of gold.” It’s how political sausage is made. LISTEN HERE >
Opponents of Hill say his MUA board position barely qualifies as a part-time job, but still provides for platinum health plan including eye care & dental.
MUA board-members. A plum gig for sure…..for a few easy hours per month….estimated to be valued at close to $500 per hour.
