Bronx News Roundup for Feb. 2

The city may outsource the operation of the water filtration plant to a private company once it’s completed, riling unions and elected officials.

Bronx riders are anxious about the proposed elimination of the Bx34 bus. Boogiedowner is gathering petition signatures to save the bus line.

Now that Democrats run state government, they have a to-do list on rent protections and tenants’ rights.

Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion, who still has not gotten the call for what seemed to be an expected job heading the new White House Office on Urban Policy, is drawing flak for his support of a contributor who wanted to lease a building to the city’s Board of Elections.

The state's new junior Senator Kirsten Gillibrand tried to win over Hispanic politicians angry about her record on immigration over the weekend.

She still has some work to do. “We cannot afford to stand with someone who will make no commitment [to us]," Councilman Joel Rivera of the Bronx said. "We have been given a lot of rhetoric over the years. We need action."

She told the Times , “In a lot of these issues, it’s a case of learning more and expanding my view."
