Manager rings up 10,000 town cell phone bill


An official in charge of managing a Long Island town's cell phone accounts rang up thousands of dollars worth of personal calls on his own town cell phone.

Newsday reported Tuesday that Town of Islip cell phone manager Robert L. Komorski resigned after investigators discovered he had racked up $10,000 worth of personal calls.

Komorski confirmed that he had resigned. He said of the cell phone use: "I guess I could have been more vigilant."

Komorski said Monday he had already paid back $10,000 in restitution.

The West Islip resident worked for the town for 17 years, including 10 years overseeing cell phones.
