Valley Indy Radio: Ansonia Budget Battle

In this episode of ‘Navel Gazing: The Valley Indy Podcast,’ reporters Eugene Driscoll and Ethan Fry try to break the Ansonia school funding battle into the simplest components.

The school board has a lawsuit pending against city government for taking $600,000 away from the schools earlier this year.

The city says the money was initially given last year under the assumption the school would not be receiving “alliance district” money from the state.

Ansonia schools received the state money, but argues the take back is in violation of state law.

It’s complicated. Press play to listen.
