From the NY Post:
The city gave secret permission to Finance Commissioner Martha Stark to moonlight at a real-estate company -- despite rules forbidding department heads to engage in outside employment, The Post has learned.
Stark, 48 - who makes a $189,700 salary as the city's chief of real-estate assessment and tax collection - works on the side at Tarragon Corp., a Manhattan-based company that builds apartment complexes in New Jersey, Connecticut and several other states.
Tarragon paid her $90,316 in 2007 and $44,126 in 2006, company filings show. That included $104,000 in cash plus stocks and stock options.
No other city commissioner or department head enjoys a similar outside gig, officials said.
Since the Post's article was printed, the Commissioner has resigned from her second job. She should have resigned from the first instead.
