Many Throgs Neck residents say their streets are still in dangerous conditions

Many residents in Throgs Neck are complaining that their streets have been left in a dangerous disarray. They say a contractor abruptly walked off the Hammond Cove sewer project and left the streets in dangerous conditions.

The contractor, Chris Todino of Todino Water and Sewage, says Con Edison is to blame for his walk off. He says Con Ed owes him $1 million in back fees for the careful work that needs to be done around utilities equipment. He adds that Con Ed officials have refused to negotiate so he is filing a lawsuit.

Con Edison officials say any money owed to Todino Water and Sewage has been paid. They add that as of Wednesday, they have no knowledge of a lawsuit.
