Comptroller to Audit Filter Plant Cost Overruns

The Riverdale Press reports that City Comptroller William Thompson will indeed audit the cost overruns of the filtration plant project in Van Cortlandt Park. In February, the filtration plant monitoring committee voted to ask the city and state comptrollers, as well as the Independent Budget Office, to look into the project's massive cost overruns. So far, the IBO and city comptroller have agreed to audit the project, which is being handled by the city's Department of Environmental Protection (DEP).

The cost of the plant is now triple the original estimate and recently an executive at one of project's primary contractors was indicted for extortion in connection with organized crime syndicates.
