Avella requests probe of BSA over mosques
State Sen. Tony Avella (D-Bayside) again has sent a letter to U.S. Attorney of the Southern District Preet Bharara to review the Board of Standards and Appeals for possible improper conduct because its chairwoman appeared at the opening for a mosque that the agency approved.
The agency also recently approved a controversial mosque proposal at 46-05 Parsons Blvd. in Flushing and posted its decision eight weeks after deciding to grant all variances sought.
Avella sent a follow-up letter to Bharara on Sept. 29 about the original letter, which was sent on July 21, prior to the BSA's decision on the Flushing mosque.
