The mayor and police chief of North Haledon, N.J., are under fire for using borough-owned portable generators for their personal use after Superstorm Sandy knocked out power to many parts of town, according to a NorthJersey.com report.

Mayor Randy George used the generator to power his ice cream shop for about a day and then returned it to the public works chief, the report said.

The mayor also allowed Chief Robert Bracco to take a generator home to power his house. The chief had been working around the clock after the storm and had an elderly mother at home. He changed his mind a day later and returned the generator.

The borough attorney is investigating if any laws were broken.
