FBI investigating DEP

In tough economic times, one city agency has some explaining to do. A city worker made more than a hundred grand in overtime, hundreds of employees are taking home city cars, and now Fox 5 has learned the FBI is looking into things. Fox 5's John Deutzman continues his exclusive investigation into the city's department of environmental protection.

If it is legitimate then why bother this guy for trying to make as much as he can. Should we be going after DEP and not this guy?

Why is the Department of Environmental Planning paying Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez $100K in overtime?

Hey Wade, governments are always poorly run from strictly a business perspective.

What I do not understand is why over the past two decades do they pay big bonuses to managers of failing companies?

For the same reason Alex Rodriguez has a 10 year contract with the Yankees worth $275 million.

Nice work, if you can get it.

This reminds me all to much of 9/11 and then the big Enron scandal, that got execs and a lot of companies in trouble and then Sarbanes Oxley was implemented. Now our country is facing another crisis with the recession and Mortgages, etc, that only now are they looking into the details behind all this excess, it's a shame it takes such a crisis before the fire gets lit under their asses.

As long as he didn't cheat anyone, I really don't mind a clock puncher maxing his overtime in an era when a guy gets $20M a year for pitching once a week, bank fat cats get taxpayer bailouts and the car guys have their snouts out for the same...

Why is it that you people whine when you don't get city services and when somebody puts in some extra work and gives you the service you need you complain? C'mon, this story is worthless and without merit. You should be thanking him for his hard work and dedication.

There's only one person here on this blog. I'm using various pseudonyms to make guys like you think there's a bunch of us. "We" are in your head! Joke's on you!

EPA and DEP - you see these folks in the little white Prius cars - they are always eating while they eat on driving to the laundermat by my place!

What do they do and I can I have a job like them too? Watch Mr Mayor - mind your own house - it stinks!

A.Harris: Did you even watch the report? I suggest you do. Then take your "you people" comment and shove it where the sun don't shine!

As long as he worked the hours he deserves the cash. There are too many useless employee's getting a free car and free gas at our expense for doing nothing. That's a crime. At least he work. In the PD, FD, City Hall and other agencies the free car /gas perk in all over.
