The decorative drapes are courtesy of Lou Magazzu’s freeholder board. They paid $12 million from the taxpayer’s pocket for this addition that is in dire need of repair. The roof leaks, many rooms are unusable, ceilings are caving in, etc.
In fact, Lou wants to hide this from the public so much that cameras are not allowed inside the rooms where there is damage.
Now Lou is paying the same company that was in charge of this travesty another $12 million to do the Prosecutor’s Office. That’s right, since they have such an exemplary record of shoddy workmanship (it seems some of the flashing was installed incorrectly on the Courthouse) and the company has donated heavily to Democratic causes that they deserve to stick it again to taxpayers.
And Lou’s team had refused to file a lawsuit until the statute of limitations had been exceeded, allegedly ensuring that a contractor that was related to his wife’s side of the family was safe from legal action.
