According to the report , Queen City Carting CEO Frank Miceli, Jr. demolished four “zombie” homes over the summer, although he was banned from doing so by the state Department of Labor.
The report states that the cost of the scope of work Miceli and Queen City Carting completed nears $150,000, which the city allegedly intends to attempt to recover. Companies are placed on the disbarment list if they falsify payroll records or the kickback of wages and supplements.
