Mayor: concerns likely sparked FBI probe of baseball park

News

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin says his administration contacted federal investigators about one of the original developers of the city’s much-delayed minor league baseball stadium.

Bronin said Friday that concerns were shared with the FBI about Centerplan Construction Co.’s handling of the project, including the alleged failure to pay subcontractors for their work.

The Hartford Courant, citing unnamed sources, reported Friday (http://cour.at/2kVjZU3 ) that FBI agents have contacted people about construction of the Dunkin’ Donuts Park, home of the Hartford Yard Goats.

Bronin said Friday the probe is not focused on Hartford and officials believe it was “prompted by information proactively shared by the city.”

Centerplan’s CEO and founder Robert Landino tells the Courant his company did nothing wrong and he welcomes “anyone to contact me with regard to any investigation.”
