The name of Trenton Business Administrator Eric Berry came up in passing at a recent City Council meeting, but supposedly nothing transpired. Now the Trenton paper has an article saying Berry has resigned and is on his way to Plainfield.
Berry holds the distinction of being the seventh business administrator in the cabinet of Trenton Mayor Tony Mack, which definitely tops the revolving door in the Queen City.
Acting City Administrator David Kochel is still on the job here due to a change in the Municipal Code, which previously limited acting terms to 90 days. Now he can stay on until early November. That is, unless a "permanent" city administrator is named and confirmed to serve concurrently with the balance of the mayor's term, which ends Dec. 31, 2013.
The City Council's next meeting is an agenda-fixing session Monday, 7:30 p.m. in City Hall Library. The regular meeting is 8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 11, in Municipal Court.
