Our 09/25/17 Testimony to MTA Board on Gateway Towers, ABO Complaint

September 25, 2017

Reinvent Albany testified at today’s hearing of the MTA Bridges and Tunnels Committee. We asked whether the MTA board met its fiduciary duty when it approved spending for the building and installation of decorative Gateway Towers without a budget for the towers. As of today, the towers, which are stainless steel pylons installed at the entrances to all nine MTA bridges and tunnels, have already cost $47m.
