MPO votes to give contract to firm guilty of OVERBILLING TxDOT!

See the story in Toll Road News here.

This is an outrage! The MPO Board members likely had no idea, but the MPO staff is who recommended this contractor and the MPO staff is an arm of TxDOT. TxDOT and the MPO staff are complicit in recommending and hiring a company known for fraud and corruption at the taxpayers’ expense!

    Thank everyone who have worked so hard on this issue, keeping the Citizens informed is so important. its a constant determination to keep the issues before the taxpayers. Watch Dogs give them a itch where they can’t scratch. The MPO is asking for board members. I have been approached again about being a Member MaMa Bexar.

    PBS&J settle with TxDOT and Florida DOT

    PBS&J have settled overbilling disputes with TxDOT and Florida DOT which affected much tollroad work. PBS&J, one of the largest engineering firms in the US was formally blacklisted by TxDOT May 24 and had ceased seeking new work at FDOT in April under warnings of a blacklisting.

    PBS&J told TxDOT, FDOT and other clients March 2005 that they had discovered about five years of overbilling committed by their chief financial officer and two other conspirators which defrauded clients and PBS&J itself to the tune of some $36m. The three were fired and the law called in. They have pled guilty to charges of fraud.

    PBS&J pledged to unravel the fraud in detail and recompense clients.

    If this is true, then the MPO is guilty of negligence and worse. Check into the accusation and if it is true then they need to withdraw their approval of the contractor. No business that has been proven guilty of fraud, particularly against the taxpayers, should ever be allowed to even enter the process again.
