Mayor Takes City’s Financial Plight To Advisory Panel

HARTFORD, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) – Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin went before Connecticut’s Municipal Finance Advisory Commission Thursday, seeking guidance on the capital city’s financial problems.

Bronin, who has insisted he is doing everything he can to avoid a bankruptcy filing by the city, told the panel that Hartford faces a projected shortfall of $22 million for the fiscal year ending in June and a $50 million projected deficit next fiscal year. He also said the city could face cash-flow problems as early as December.

Members of the advisory commission said they would examine the city’s finances but suggested Bronin might find more relief by appealing to the legislature.
