Poll: Plurality Believe Officials Responsible for AECOM Debacle Should be Fired

Written By Editor on 4/22/14 | 4/22/14


Coming off the heels of Friday's vote by the Schoharie County Board of Supervisors requesting the New York State Comptroller's Office investigate the AECOM debacle, Schoharie News readers are deeply divided over what the county's appropriate response to the scandal should be. 

With over one hundred and fifty votes cast, 46% of readers believe that county officials responsible for the circumstances resulting in the stream bank project's $2.6 million budget shortfall should be fired, while 42% contend the county's should respond by covering the project's full costs to ensure final work is completed.

Leave the contract, halt all stream work
  9 (5%)
Try to meet AECOM halfway
  7 (4%)
Pay the full amount to make sure that the work is done      
  65 (42%)
Fire county officials responsible
  71 (46%)
Other (please comment)
  1 (0%)

If anything can be observed from these results, it is that the county is deeply divided over the stream bank remediation project and the fallout associated with revelations that AECOM had conducted work past the purview of their original contract, which had been altered without consent of the Board of Supervisors.
