Former DPW worker indicted on fraud charges

Formal charges have been filed against a former public works supervisor in New Rochelle who is accused of falsifying documents to steer city contracts to his favorite vendors.

Longtime DPW worker Richard Fevang was indicted Tuesday on 66 counts of fraud and official misconduct.

Before he resigned last week, Fevang worked as a fleet manager for the central garage on Main Street. His job was to oversee all of the city's cars, but according to prosecutors, he abused that power, steering lucrative repair bids to the companies of his choice.

Fevang faces seven years in prison if he is convicted.
