Contractors association allege irregularities in NMC’s accounts dept | Nagpur News

Nagpur: Large-scale irregularities have surfaced in Nagpur Municipal Corporation regarding clearance of outstanding bills of the civil contractors. Though bills were pending from February to October, the accounts department, which has no full-time chief accounts and finance officer, has cleared some bills of April out of bills pending for eight months.
The NMC Contractors’ Welfare Association has approached municipal commissioner Radhakrishnan B and urged him to resolve the issue. “Quite often the in-charge CAFO comes to office in an inebriated condition and uses foul language,” the memorandum stated.
“CAFO Hemant Thakre takes a lot of time to sign the bills and clear payments as per journal voucher sequence despite lots of requests and complaints,” the association alleged.

The ultra-luxury Faena House condo, an oceanfront Miami Beach tower that is home to billionaires Ken Griffin, Lloyd Blankfein and others, has a big lawsuit on its hands.

The condo association is suing the developer, general contractor and subcontractors for a laundry list of alleged construction defects at the 17-story building, including a broken elevator in the penthouse, missing art, cracking in the concrete and chalky paint.

The 44-unit Faena House, at 3315 Collins Avenue, has made headlines since it was completed in 2015.

Brooklyn-based interdisciplinary design studio Peterson Rich Office (PRO) and nonprofit civic organization the Regional Plan Association (RPA) have released a new 18-page report detailing design strategies and scalable solutions meant to boost the well-being of the roughly 600,000 New Yorkers living in deteriorating New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA)-owned and -operated developments. In total, NYCHA, the largest housing authority in the United States, acts as landlord for roughly 8 percent of all New Yorkers.

PRO was selected by the RPA to lead research and design work for the report last June as part of the organization’s inaugural J.M Kaplan Chairs for Urban Design fellowship, which expressly focuses on generating new and innovative design solutions that could be implemented at critically underfunded public housing campuses across all five boroughs. As envisioned in the initiative, funds to implement such strategies would come from a mix of (dwindling) federal, state, and local sources
