Posted to: Shelton, Shelton School Budget 2015-2016

Ansonia Says Lawyer Won’t Give WPCA Its Files Back

by Ethan Fry | May 26, 2015 6:39 am

Posted to: Ansonia

Ansonia officials are asking a judge to make a local lawyer give back files from the city’s Water Pollution Control Authority they say he’s kept for more than a year.

The lawyer, John F.X. Androski, represented the WPCA for more than a decade, but was replaced in a series of changes in local government after David Cassetti was elected mayor.

Androski says he was fired because of age discrimination. He filed a complaint against the WPCA with the state’s Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities last year, which is still pending.

The city maintains WPCA members merely opted not to renew Androski’s contract.
