New Mexico AG Joins McKinley County Probe

New Mexico Attorney General Gary King's office has joined a probe into McKinley County.

The Gallup Independent reports (http://bit.ly/Axbadj) that the attorney general's Government Accountability Division requested last week county documents dating back to Jan. 2007 in connection with the county's business dealings with Board of Commissioners Chairman David Dallago's company, the Dallago Corporation.

The office of New Mexico State Auditor Hector Balderas is looking into possible conflicts of interest and the high dollar amount billed to the county by the Dallago Corp.

Since 2008, the county reported that the Dallago Corp. reaped more than $1 million in taxpayer dollars for services rendered under the four-year heating, cooling, ventilation and air conditioning and plumbing maintenance contracts the company holds, in addition to other contract and subcontract work.
