Legal remedy to the construction debris, some replete with asbestos, in a walled enclosure in which debris is piled hire that the walled perimeter is a hazard in the Homefield Section. The cost to clean the property of the construction debris has languished in legal “hell”. It has been advised that the clean-up would cost the City of Yonkers over $2.5 million. One must wonder why so many at Yonkers Corporation Counsel have failed to receive the financial remedy required. When the protagonists are recognized to be so intimately connected, one must wonder who is watching out for the public interest. The window of opportunity to pursue Joe Spiezio legally and Financial may have been lost by delaying the pursuit in a time fashion.
