Newsday Jan. 14 – Nassau OKs $98M for Sandy cleanup

“A tree-debris removal service slated to receive more than $40 million from Nassau County for Sandy cleanup has threatened to sue the county and Legis. Delia DeRiggi-Whitton for defamation and libel after she questioned its bills during a legislative meeting.

DeRiggi-Whitton (D-Glen Cove) referred to the letter from a lawyer for Looks Great Services of Huntington as the county legislature on Monday considered appropriating an additional $98 million to pay for Sandy expenses. Nassau is hoping the Federal Emergency Management Agency will reimburse most of the costs, which are expected to total $213 million.

“I am totally amazed that they would have the nerve to suggest such a thing,” DeRiggi-Whitton said. “This is to deter me from doing my job, to not be able to ask questions. The day I feel intimidated from doing my job is the day I am going to leave.”
