City Hits Mount Manresa Project with $67,400 Fines in Asbestos Violations

Asbestos problems at the Mount Manresa project have led to over $67,000 in city violations, and GOP Borough President James Oddo wants the Department of Investigation (DOI) to step in.

The violations claim that Gaspare Santoro failed to properly address all suspect asbestos in his survey; engaged in improper conduct; and did not take the requisite number of samples in his investigation--taking just 19 samples, as opposed to another asbestos investigator, who took 300 samples.
