Wednesday, January 14, 2009

Ten supervisors and a retired worker at Consolidated Edison are accused of soliciting and accepting more than $1 million in kickbacks from a contractor.

Authorities say the contractor worked at projects in New York City and Westchester County since 2004. The projects included the cleanup following a Manhattan steam pipe explosion in that killed one person and seriously injured two others in July of 2007.

A spokesman for the utility had no immediate comment. The defendants were arrested today and are awaiting arraignment in federal court in Brooklyn.
