Two more people have been arrested as part of a widening investigation of corruption at the North Bergen Public Works Department.

The supervisors are accused of assigning employees to work on election campaigns and do to chores around their homes.

Troy Bunero and Francis "Frank" Longo were each indicted on conspiracy, misconduct, theft and other charges Friday.

The Attorney General's Office alleges they submitted fraudulent paperwork allowing employees to be paid overtime for working on campaigns. Authorities say the men also assigned workers to renovate Bunero's home and paint Longo's truck.

Authorities say they did personal favors and chores for Superintendent James Wiley.

Wiley pleaded guilty earlier this month to directing public works employees to work on election campaigns and projects around his house while on the clock.
