Former state DOT engineer fined, loses job, for ethics violation

ALBANY - The Joint Commission on Public Ethics today announced that a former State Department of Transportation (DOT) engineer based in Syracuse violated State ethics laws by abusing his authority to obtain improper personal privileges from contractors that he oversaw on road and bridge projects in Cortland County, among other things. Those personal privileges included free sidewalk installation work, the misappropriation of State construction materials, and asking State contractors to resurface the driveway at his personal residence for free.

Former DOT Engineer-in-charge Larry Selan admitted to the violation of State ethics law in a settlement agreement with the Joint Commission.

As part of the settlement, Selan paid the State a $2,000 fine for the ethics violation.

The settlement is separate from the disciplinary action taken by his former agency, which included his mandatory resignation.
