West Haven Mayor Nancy Rossi recorded a three minute video on Friday, Oct. 8, 2021 informing the public that an audit had found problems with the way the city spent federal coronavirus relief money.

Connecticut’s Municipal Accountability Review Board, or MARB, recently voted to increase its control over West Haven’s finances following an audit that determined the city misspent hundreds of thousands of dollars in federal relief funds.

Connecticut Mirror Investigative Reporter Andrew Brown has been following this story.

On "All Things Considered," Brown spoke about what sort of control MARB will exert, what MARB is prepared to if the current move to Tier-4 Control doesn't solve the problem, and the degree to which Mayor Nancy Rossi is — or is not — to blame.
