Former U.S. Marshal Eugene Corcoran has just been named the Deputy Commissioner of Enforcement with the Department of Buildings, marking the first time that the DOB has appointed a former law enforcement official to its senior leadership team, according to the New York Times. Corcoran’s appointment comes on the heels of accusations of corruption and mismanagement directed at the DOB, along with a series of gaffes including the deadly Deutsche Bank fire in 2007, the Azure crane collapse at 333 East 91st Street in 2008 and the subsequent allegations of bribery against a top-ranking city crane inspector. Corcoran’s job will focus on managing the inspectors and officials who oversee contractors and developers throughout the city. [NYT]
