Michael Barile, a member of the Carmel Town Board, pleaded guilty on Feb. 8 to secretly hooking his restaurant to the public sewer system so he wouldn’t have to pay for using it, according to the Putnam County district attorney.

Barile, who co-owns the Blu Restaurant in Carmel, had been served with multiple cease-and-desist orders by the town, the DA said in a statement. He agreed to pay a $105,000 fine.
