(Courtesy of Facebook)A Town of Hempstead code enforcement officer with nearly three decades on the job has abruptly resigned after being accused of stealing a laptop computer from his boss’s office earlier this month.Stephen Centore was arrested and charged with felony grand larceny March 5, four days after he allegedly stole a Panasonic Tough Book computer worth more than $1,000 from the acting Chief of Public Safety’s office in town hall on Washington Street.“The town does not comment on issues where there’s an ongoing criminal case,” Michael Deery, the town’s chief spokesman, told the Press.Centore “did not have permission and/or authority to use, posses or remove this item from the office,” according to court documents.Town officials reported the alleged theft to Hempstead village police, who released the 56-year-old Franklin Square man on a desk appearance ticket, according to the police chief.Judge Eric Bjorneby released Centore without bail Tuesday. Centore is due back in court May 2.Centore started working for the town Oct. 7, 1985 and earned $109,000 last year. He resigned from the town building department on March 8.The case wasn’t the first time Centore found himself on the wrong side of the law. He was also suspended 60 days in 2007 and fined $500 in county court the following year after pleading guilty to illegal use of a single family home, according to a Newsday report at the time.It’s also not the only criminal case pending against a Hempstead town official. Hempstead Town Clerk Mark Bonilla refused calls from fellow Republicans to resign after he pleaded not guilty in September to official misconduct, attempted coercion and petit larceny.Prosecutors have alleged Bonilla asked the ex-boyfriend of a female subordinate to give him compromising photos of the woman in an attempt to get the 21-year-old victim to drop a sexual harassment complaint against Bonilla, who has said he’s been set up by political rivals.Centore could not be reached for comment. No attorney was listed for him in court records.last_img read more

admin no comments

first_imgThe €7bn KLM pension fund for ground staff said it had divested its entire holdings in Russia during the third quarter, following the deployment of a new risk assessment tool. Besides market risk, the potential escalation of the European Union’s boycott of Russia also posed a too big country risk, it indicated in its quarterly report.The Algemeen Pensioenfonds KLM reported a quarterly result of 1.8%, mainly thanks to positive returns on its 48.3% fixed income portfolio (1.7%) and its 41.3% equity holdings (1.4%). However, it lost 0.4 percentage points on its property investments.It said its year-to-date result was 9.9%, of which 1.4 percentage points was thanks to its hedge of the interest risk on 50% of its liabilities. Despite its positive result, the pension fund’s coverage ratio dropped no less than 6.1 percentage points to 117% during the third quarter, following decreasing interest rates.The official discount rate for liabilities – the three-month average of the market rate plus the ultimate forward rate – dropped from 2.45% to 2.14%, it added.The KLM scheme for ground staff further said that it had invested €175m in Dutch domestic mortages – approximately 7.5% of its fixed income portfolio – during last quarter, and indicated that it was planning to invest another €75m in this asset class, “because of its above average return against a low risk”.The €2.4bn KLM pension fund for cabin staff, or Cabinepersoneel, reported a 2.4% quarterly result, leading to a return of 12.1% during the first nine months of the year.It said its holdings in fixed income, equity and property returned 1.1%, 1.4% and -0.5% respectively in the third quarter.Declining interest rates came at the expense of 6.3 percentage points of its funding, which dropped to 117.4%, equating to a coverage ratio under real terms of 77.7%. The €7.7bn KLM scheme for cockpit staff, or Vliegend Personeel, said it returned 1% and 8.2% during the third quarter and the first nine months, respectively.Its funding dropped 6.5 percentage points to 126.9% during the last quarter.The asset management for the three KLM pension funds is carried out by Blue Sky Group.last_img read more
