New York rules that embattled Owasco highway superintendent’s personal business can’t participate in public projects

The Department of Labor ruled in 2019 that Robert Bruno, the embattled public works official in Cayuga County who is accused of official misconduct, also failed to pay more than $112,843 worth of wages to employees of his business.

The Auburn Citizen uncovered the failure to pay wages on four Auburn public works projects.

Bruno operates ‘Robert Bruno and Bob Bruno Excavating Inc.’ The ruling from the Department of Labor means that they cannot participate in any public work contracts across the state for the next several years.

Bruno serves as elected highway superintendent in Owasco, and has been under investigation following criminal accusations that he used his position as highway superintendent to help his private business.
