Hempstead Supervisor Laura Gillen has asked the town attorney to investigate alleged pay-to-play corruption in the Sanitation Department that was discussed in secret recordings a former employee said he made of conversations with co-workers in 2015.

The recordings, which a federal jury heard in a U.S. District Court civil trial in Central Islip last month, capture alleged department staffers saying sanitation workers pay bribes to get on better trash collection routes and contribute to local Republican clubs in exchange for promotions.
