PEEKSKILL, N. Y. -- The Westchester County District Attorney's office is looking into a $15,000 grant from Peekskill-based Preservation Co. to a city official as other city officials grapple with whether they should continue to support the housing assistance agency, according to a lohud.com report.

The lohud.com report is pointing to the fact that about half of a $75,000 state grant was awarded a combination of current and former Peekskill officials, along with an employee of Hudson River HealthCare, which helped found Preservation.

Meanwhile, the District Attorney's Office is looking at a $15,000 grant that went to Deputy Mayor Drew Claxton, says lohud.

Mayor Frank Catalina is still waiting for a response to his January request for a list of all current and former city officials, employees and families who got a grant from Preservation in the last 10 years. Peekskill officials are considering withdrawing a $313,000 federal grant awarded to Preservation until questions are resolved, according to lohud.com.
