New Rochelle Official, Under Investigation, Resigns

NEW ROCHELLE —The City of New Rochelle was close to serving disciplinary charges against Dept. of Public Works Fleet Manager Richard Fevang when he resigned Thursday, according to the City Manager.
Fevand is the subject of an investigation by the Westchester County District Attorney, which centers on over-billing the city for repairs to city cars, trucks and boats. 

District Attorney spokesman Lucian Chalfen would not comment further.

City Manager Charles Strome III writes, “With the conclusion of grand jury testimony, the City prepared charges to be served on Mr. Fevang. However, Mr. Fevang… has advised us of his resignation, effective immediately.

It must be made clear that this unfortunate incident concerns the actions of a single individual in an organization of more than 600,” he added.
