Gov. Reinstates Aid to Stamford, Official Says

STAMFORD, Conn. — Good news for Stamford! Gov. Dannel Malloy has reversed his decision to reduce municipal aid to Connecticut's towns and cities. And instead of trimming $54 million in municipal grants, the governor will lay off an additional 1,000 state employees, a Hartford Courant blog says.

“In order to take that municipal aid off the table, there are going to be substantially more layoffs. This is why the governor didn't want to go down this road,” Malloy’s senior advisor, Roy Occhiogrosso, said in the blog post.

Stamford was in line to lose over $450,000, a statement from the Connecticut Conference of Municipalities said. Malloy’s initial proposal was to make 5 percent reductions in payments in lieu of taxes for state property, hospitals and colleges, and in Town Aid Road Grants.

The additional layoffs have not yet been announced.
