WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) - Officials say a suburban New York City commissioner is resigning, and now local lawmakers must decide whether to waive a law that bars county workers from joining companies for at least a year if those companies work with the county.

A spokesman for Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino tells the Journal News (http://lohud.us/1ZcgqlO ) in White Plains that public works and transportation commissioner Jay Pisco will resign on July 1.

Pisco has requested a waiver so he can work with Holzmacher, McLendon and Murrell Consulting Engineers, which has two agreements for work at wastewater-treatment plants in Yonkers and Port Chester.

Board of Legislators Chairman Michael Kaplowitz says rejecting the waiver would be punitive unless an impropriety or a conflict of interest existed.

A vote on the waiver is expected next week.
