Puerto Rico gov. requests audit into contract awarded to tiny energy company

But Chris Chiames, spokesman for Whitefish Energy, said the company is committed to the work despite the risks. But the demand is greatly exceeding the number of available spaces for animals.

Amid the crushed buildings and smashed lives that Hurricane Maria left in Puerto Rico, a Hamilton County doctor-in-training is working with U.S. military members to make a difference. There was no formal bidding process. Russ said this generosity has given Maegan and Haniel something Puerto Ricans aren't currently accustomed to receiving from the U.S. - hope.

Now lawmakers want more scrutiny.

Zamot spent 25 years with the Air Force and helped manage energy and infrastructure projects, according to the board.

In their time of need, it is unacceptable for our POTUS to threaten aid when they need it the most.

"It was a very creative time for us", starting with building an emergency room from the ground up aboard ship, he said.

"This doesn't pass the smell test", Rep. Luis Gutierriez, a Democrat from Illinois said.

PREPA's decision to contract Whitefish could be a costly one. Zinke's office described Whitefish as a "small town" with a population of roughly 6,000 people.

Primarily, her trip this week is to bury her grandmother who recently died, Miranda said. Hurricane Maria, considered to be a category 5, did direct damage to the beloved island.

President Trump on Thursday gave himself a perfect rating for his response to the hurricane that devastated Puerto Rico.

"They presently have food and water, their home was not destroyed, but all their employment income has stopped, and their money is running low", states a letter to Mara Landing owners on the GoFundMe page. Its biggest government job other than that was replacing a pole.

Whitefish did not ask for a payment guarantee, and it got the contract with PREPA.

"We have provided so much, so fast", Trump said, adding the disaster in Puerto Rico was "worse than Katrina". Zinke has admitted he knows the company's CEO, although Zinke claims he had no role in brokering the contract.

The utility, which filed for bankruptcy in July, shortlisted two, including Whitefish.

"Under the contract, the hourly rate was set at $330 for a site supervisor, and at $227.88 for a 'journeyman lineman, '" The Washington Post reports. And they say it's going well so far. It disturbed me to find out that even after a month of recovery efforts on the island, people are still dying because they don't have safe water to drink.

"One of the sad things about the island is - they're American citizens". Already, the company has scaled up to 300 employees in Puerto Rico - and it says 700 more are on the way.

"These are some of the most critically ill patients I've come across in my entire career", he said.

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz engaged in an angry back-and-forth with Whitefish Energy on Twitter, after she called for more transparency about the tiny company's $300 million contract to restore the island's power. "But Whitefish was ready to". She told Yahoo News on Wednesday that she found the deal "alarming" and said it "should be voided right away".
