WOODBURY - There are new developments on the toxic dumping scandal in the Town of Islip.
Newsday is reporting that a Conservative Party official was consulted months before the public was made aware of the problem. The District Attorney announced a probe in May after 50,000 tons of asbestos-laced debris was dumped in Roberto Clemente Park in Brentwood.
A source says Islip officials met with party leader Michael Torres in January, when some of the debris was allegedly moved.
There are still no arrests in the ongoing investigation.
