ANSONIA >> The city and its former longtime town/city clerk have reached a settlement regarding ownership of more than $260,000 in fees accumulated by the clerk’s office over 14 years.
The Board of Aldermen during its meeting Tuesday unanimously approved a settlement where Madeline Bottone, the former clerk who served in the role for 16 years before retiring last year, and the city will split $262,000 remaining in a city-maintained bank account.
“The City and Ms. Bottone mediated this matter before retired District Court Judge Alan Neves last week,” said Corporation Counsel John Marini. “Ms. Bottone claimed the balance of the account as her retirement savings. The City, however, concluded that the funds were taxpayer property based on provisions of the Ansonia Charter, Code and Connecticut General Statutes.”
