Build it Back
Stringer’s office examined the city’s Build it Back and found there were double billings and a lack of accountability.
During Superstorm Sandy on the night of Oct. 29, 2012, more than 130 homes were wiped out by a horrific fire in Breezy Point, Queens.
Mayor de Blasio said to date, the Sandy recovery program has seen a total 727 construction starts and 878 reimbursement checks sent out.
The mayor unveiled a sweeping report on Thursday that examines the city’s recovery progress.
The city acknowledged it has spent only a fraction of the money available for Sandy-related home repairs and rebuilding, but it’s something Mayor Bill de Blasio has vowed to fix.
