The search for an Eastern Connecticut State University student missing since last month came to Ansonia this week.
The mystery surrounding the disappearance of 20-year-old Alyssiah Wiley has attracted statewide attention since state police announced she was missing April 26.
Wiley’s mother, Corrinna Martin, spent Tuesday and Wednesday evenings canvassing Ansonia neighborhoods spreading the word about her daughter’s case.
Martin said that while her daughter didn’t have friends or family in Ansonia, it is an “area of interest.”

Derby’s Redevelopment Agency met for the first time in more than a year Tuesday, where city officials said three developers are interested in bringing new activity to parts of the city’s long-stalled downtown redevelopment zone.
The city has been trying for years to spur new businesses in the area that stretches along Main Street next to the Housatonic River from roughly the Derby-Shelton Bridge to the former Lifetouch property.
In the latest in a series of setbacks, the preferred development agreement with California-based Eclipse Development Group expired April 18 due to the company’s inability to secure a viable anchor tenant for the area.

Did Seymour’s Board of Police Commissioners violate the law by having department brass sit on executive session interviews of job candidates?
That’s the question at the center of a complaint currently under review by the state Freedom of Information Commission, part of a larger battle between retired Detective Sgt. Ronald Goodmaster and the Seymour Police Department and Board of Police Commissioners.
Goodmaster’s FOI complaint was the subject of a two-hour hearing at the FOI Commission last week. His lawyer says the complaint is just one of a “vast morass” of issues that will likely culminate with a lawsuit.

What a difference a year makes.
The Derby tax board May 7 approved a preliminary budget for next year that includes a slight tax decrease for city taxpayers.
A final vote on the budget will happen Tuesday (May 14). The May 7 vote was the anti-climax of a drama-free budget cycle in Derby.
