Weprint best of the address below, and will chase up abutting week.
The IG’s address begin that the Departmentof Accommodation and Barrio had an “inadequate arrangement of tracking and securingbuildings or portions of barrio that had been accursed by DHB.” And in manyillegal basement apartments, “the abortion of DHB to aftereffect and ensure thatthe accursed backdrop were either legalized or remained unoccupied, putlives in accident and accomplished acreage owners.”

In addition, the address begin a abridgement ofsupervision “concerning time and appearance policies, administration the take-homevehicle action and ensuring that advisers are chargeless of conflicts, especiallyrelated to the backdrop in which they accept banking interests.”
Some of the background, and means that thisscandal was uncovered, from the report:
“In December 20 17, the Administration ofInspector Accepted was contacted by the Yonkers Fire Administration Fire PreventionDivision to address apropos apropos assorted backdrop in the Burghal ofYonkers apropos to violations that jeopardized the bloom and assurance of theresidents aural those properties. These apropos centered about backdrop thathoused actionable basement apartments, additionally accepted as distinct allowance occupancies.
“More apropos was the actuality that DHB hadcondemned these actionable apartments on assorted occasions, about withoutenforcement of those accusation orders the apartments would be re-occupied,creating the alarming and potentially action aggressive conditions.
“During our analysis we additionally learnedof bent action accompanying to bogus and the filing of counterfeit documentsby DHB employees. We acquired aboveboard affirmation that DHB cadre wasaccepting banknote payments for assuming a array of illegal, bent andinappropriate accomplishments in their official accommodation as Burghal of Yonkers employees.
“Condemned Properties: On Dec. 7, 2017, a assassination was committed in the basement apartmentof 9 Riverview Place in Yonkers. The Yonkers Badge Administration responded to thescene and apparent a ample bulk of marijuana and biologic paraphernalia. Basedon the affirmation collected, the YPD bent that the victim was a biologic dealerwho was a citizen in a basement accommodation of the premises, and that thehomicide was biologic related.
“The blueprint of the basement apartments ledYPD to doubtable that the abode was an actionable SRO. The Yonkers FirePrevention Division was notified and responded to the arena to audit theproperty. Aloft analytical the premises, FPD issued corruption notices to theowner and arise the acreage to DHB, which ordered the accusation of thebasement apartments.
“The Fire Prevention Division theninformed the IG that the basement apartments of the 9 Riverview Place propertyhad absolutely been accursed aback in 2010 based on the aforementioned violations of anillegal SRO. In fact, assorted backdrop endemic by the aforementioned individual,Aurelio, who was issued summonses for actionable basement apartments and otherviolations aback in 2010. Admitting the actuality that abundant summonses and letterswere served aloft Assuncao, he bootless to accomplish the all-important alterations to theproperties.
“After the assassination at Riverview Place,the YFD xxxxx, conducted inspections of all the Riverview Place backdrop anddiscovered that the acreage was onceagain accommodation tenants and accession rents in actionable basement apartments.Again, orders of accusation were issued by DHB and violations issued.
“It was at this point that the commissionerof the Yonkers Fire Department reachedout to our office, which led to our investigation. YFD’s capital affair was thatthe altitude in these backdrop were not alone actionable but alarming andpotentially life-threatening and it did not arise as admitting DHB was enforcingthe accusation orders or ensuring that the altitude surrounding the illegalapartments were corrected.
According to the report: “We apperceive that thesituation with the client of the Riverview Place/Beech Street backdrop is notisolated. Cadre from both DHB and FPD accept arise that actionable basementapartments are aggressive in Yonkers, decidedly in the Southwest allotment of the city.
“Landlord Assuncao awash some of hisproperties in 2016, admitting accepting outstanding violations or fines. All theproperties were actuality awash to the aforementioned buyer, Jason Stricker. The architecture departmentfiles for Assuncao’s backdrop included what the IG begin was a forgeddocument, claiming that three backdrop had been inspected.
“The belletrist apropos 9 Riverview and141 Beech were purportedly active by Patrick Losco, chief architecture inspector,and the 13 Riverview letter was purportedly active by Lawrence Donahue, buildingssupervisor. These belletrist were artificial in an attack to bright the backdrop ofany violations above-mentioned to their sale.
“In our antecedent altercation with again DHBCommissioner William Schneider in January 2018, he declared that he was unawareof any artificial abstracts accompanying to the accountable properties. He accurately statedthat there had been no captivation by the Yonkers Badge Administration accompanying toany bogus analysis in his administration as accompanying to the subjectproper1ies. The Yonkers Badge Administration additionally accepted in January 2018 thatthere was no almanac of a complaint or analysis accompanying to the subjectproperties or artificial abstracts at DHB.”
We interviewed Lawrence Donahue in February 2018 and asked him about the artificial approval letters. He declared that he became acquainted of the abstracts as the aftereffect of a chat with a appellation allowance company. Donahue denied atrocity according to the IG’s report. An agent of Statewide Abstract, a aggregation that provides appellation insurance, accomplished out to Donahue by e-mail to ask whether the two added approval belletrist purportedly active by Losco were legitimate. Donohue responded by e-mail July 28, 2016 that Losco did not accomplish inspections on either 9 Riverview Place or 141 Beech St., and “these belletrist are additionally forgeries.
“It should be acclaimed that CommissionerWilliam Schneider was CC’d on that e-mail. When we asked Mr. Donahue whatbecame of the artificial letters, he declared that Abettor Schneider came to hisoffice, took the files and told Mr. Donahue that the amount was actuality referredto the YPD. Finally, we asked him whether he knew who had artificial the lettersand he declared that he had no idea.
“Patrick Losco was additionally interviewedregarding the artificial belletrist and he accepted abundant of what was declared by LarryDonohue. While he declared that it was his acceptance that the amount was beingreferred to YPD, he was additionally beneath the consequence that the amount was referredto the Yonkers ambassador general.
“In attempting to actuate who may havebenefitted from the artificial letters, we angry our absorption to the propertyowner, Aurelio Assuncao. It fabricated faculty that if the violations and condemnationswould anticipate the auction or lower the amount of his property, he would angle togain if those violations and condemnations were cleared. It was certainlypossible that he could alone admission the acreage files and admit afraudulent approval letter.
“At this point in our analysis adetermination was fabricated that about the artificial certificate concluded up in the DHBfile, it was a bent act. The amount was referred to law administration and ouroffice maintained a bound administration to facilitate the analysis froman authoritative perspective. Mr. Assuncao was interviewed and providedinformation implicating a chief accommodation ambassador at DHB by the name of JosephGuarniero. Assuncao declared that he had paid Guarniero banknote on multipleoccasions to either avoid assertive violations or, as was the case here, providefraudulent abstracts asserting that assertive violations had been cleared.
“Assuncao was able to present evidencelinking Guarniero to the artificial documents. Specifically, during analytic ledby our office, with abetment from law administration agencies, Assuncao statedthat accustomed the accord amid him and Guarniero, Guarniero offered toprovide counterfeit approval belletrist for the backdrop that were the subjectof the sale. In accession to his statements, Assuncao provided a cord of textmessages amid himself and Guarniero added demonstrating that there hadbeen a arrangement to bamboozle the appellation aggregation and the abeyant client of theproperties
“He declared that ultimately Guarnieroprovided a approval letter for anniversary of the three backdrop for $2,000 incash.
“As we connected our investigation, itbecame bright that Guarniero acclimated his access as accommodation administrator at DHB toassign himself to assertive accommodation complaints for backdrop area he knew hecould agitate bottomward the acreage owners. Our appointment interviewed added propertyowners who anecdotal agnate interactions with Guarniero. They declared how certainviolations would be abandoned with the simple action of putting up fingers.Three fingers – $300, bristles fingers – $500, etc.
“Based on those aforementioned interviews we learnedthat Guarniero may not accept been the alone agent in DHB to corruption hisauthority in this address but he is the one for which acceptance affirmation wasdiscovered.
“Given the actuality that we sat bottomward with the commissionerat the alpha of our analysis to be told that he had no bond ofany artificial belletrist in his administration was adamantine to believe. By the time welearned that Abettor Sclmeider had in actuality been affected on an e-mail fromone of his inspectors to a appellation aggregation analytic the actuality of theclearance letters, the abettor had retired.
“For the record, the abettor hadannounced his retirement above-mentioned to our acceptable complex in the amount so thereis no adumbration that he larboard his position in ambition of theinvestigation. There is still a catechism however, as to what would accept becomeof the artificial belletrist had we not commenced an investigation. Clearly, the YPDhad no advice accompanying to the matter.
“The inspectors whose names were artificial onthe approval belletrist sat by for a year and a bisected after anytime allurement aquestion about who ability accept perpetrated this bent act. They were thevictims but they didn’t act like victims. One of the inspectors whose name wasforged was asked if he was anytime questioned by the badge or whether he wasasked to accommodate a autography sample. He was not. The point is that someoneviolated the accessible assurance for claimed accretion and no one in DHB seemed to beconcerned in the least.
“When the mayor’s appointment was initiallynotified of our allegation in August 2018, they anon concluded Guarnierofrom his position and commenced antidotal actions. At all times theadministration accurate our analysis and followed our interimrecommendations,” address the IG in his report.
