Clarkstown Fines Developer for Illegal Dumping

The town of Clarkstown fined a developer $15,000 last week, claiming he let construction fill be dumped on his Valley Cottage property near Rockland Lake State Park despite numerous warnings to stop. Akinyinka Olateju is looking to build 35 condos there, but the violations have put a temporary stop to his project. Clarkstown supervisor George Hoehmann says he was told to secure the site but he didn’t…

Olateju claims he didn’t hire the people who were doing the dumping. He is due back in Clarkstown Justice Court next week.
