PEEKSKILL -- The Peekskill City Council is considering pulling the funding for The Preservation Co. after Deputy Mayor Drew Claxton was accused in news reports of improperly receiving thousands in home improvement grants, according to lohud.com.

The Council has the ability to pull the $313,000, federally-backed grant with a majority vote, Acting City Manager Richard Leins told lohud.com.

If the city does pull the grant, it could then award the money to another nonprofit, according to lohud.com.

Mayor Frank Catalina said the Preservation Co. has not cooperated with the city's investigation into the allegations of wrongdoing, according to lohud.com.
