GOSHEN – The Orange County District Attorney’s Office is going to investigate public complaints of alleged financial improprieties of the county Industrial Development Agency, DA David Hoovler said Friday.

A spokesperson issued a statement on behalf of the IDA, saying, “The IDA has become aware of this investigation. It has retained outside counsel and will respond appropriately to the district attorney’s inquiries.”

County Legislator James O’Donnell has been highly critical of the agency and its financial operations and had been raising questions about the management team.

Hoovler said the grand jury would be issuing subpoenas for financial documents.

A senior assistant DA with over 30 years of experience has been assigned to the case.
