Some cities and towns could see less state aid

HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH)  –  Under the Governor’s proposed state budget some cities and towns could receive less state aid next fiscal year than this year.  The Connecticut Conference of Municipalities attributes that to what they say is a flaw and is asking the General Assembly’s Appropriations Committee to correct it.

The CCM says nearly 70 cities and towns could see a reduction because some state grants are not fully funded and because of shifting grant distributions.

According to the CCM among the reductions Hartford could see a cut of $2,553,440 and New Haven $1,216,132.

The reductions would impact property taxpayers in those communities.
