Convicted felon Anthony Mallia, Ramapo’s former building inspector has been removed by the Spring Valley Board of Trustees as Mayor Alan Simon’s top aide after they voted against amending his contract, which has been maxed out. The Journal News says Simon can try to get the board to vote again, but he’s already failed two other times. Mallia was hired in January last year after pleading guilty to undercharging contractors for permits and shortchanging taxpayers by $150,000. He got five years’ probation, but no jail time. He originally faced a 188-count indictment, which included dozens of felony counts of falsifying and tampering with business records.
