This is a conflict of interest. Owning a real estate development company and working for the local town government in their housing department is a big no-no. How did the Town permit him to do both unless they knew and turned a blind eye.

North Hempstead is like all the other town buiulding departments on Long Island for years it was expected you give the building inspector some bucks just to move your project along. Board members got a kick back from him and everybody was happy. Why do you think that certain builders projects allways get approved first. Joe home owner was last on the list because he didn't know he had to pay. Why do you think we have people (political friends of the board members) making a living dealing with the building department.

Tip off the iceberg. Unless the DA wants to protect others with this low level sacrifice. The carcass rots from the head down.

Tim, I moved from Wantagh 20 months ago, I had to pay an "Expeditor" to get my permits taken care of to sell my house. Check out the Town of Hemp Building dept, it's a complete joke It's like stepping back 50 years and a little cash under the table is expected....any realtor will tell you that.

How on earth do you give a person a position of building inspector when they are a developer and involved with construction in the same town. What a huge conflict of interest. I believe that the person who was in charge of appointing him or had the authority to give him his job should also be held accountable.

Mr. Arcieno is innocent until proven guilty but if his attorney starts pounding the table rather than the facts and the law - Andy Arcieno is headed to the BIG HOUSE. Once again the taxpayers take in the shorts.
