Description

The Herald-Journal examined how the Resource Recovery Agency, charged with overseeing completion of a tracsh incinerator, opening a landfill and recycling garbage for 470,000 people, spends the public's money. The investigation found the agency exercised weak oversight of spending by outside lawyers, engineers and financial consultants. It approved hundreds of thousands of dollars in vaguely documented bills while overlooking overbillings and double billings. (July 9 - 10, 1995)
