The Grand Jury criminal indictment against Richard Fevang, former Fleet Manager in the New Rochelle Department of Public Works sparked cries for an independent forensic audit by Councilman Richard St. Paul, In 2009 the New Rochelle Talk of the Sound blog published allegations against Fevang. And several months ago Councilman Lou Trangucci had delivered boxes of DPW invoices to Brian Conway, the Deputy Chief of the Public Integrity Bureau in the District Attorney's office, to be scrutinized. These indictments could result in Fevang receiving up to seven years in prison. Fevang is accused of rigging bids so that it appeared the lowest bidder was being used. Even before this investigation, the Westchester County District Attorney has been investigating Fevang for eight of the last ten years. The City of New Rochelle had hired him even though he had a criminal record, and now there are questions about whether the usual background checks were performed.
