Middletown to defund $200,000 from sector of city’s police department


MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (WTNH) — The City of Middletown is defunding $200,000 from the police department’s private-duty overtime.

It’s all part of a $211 million budget the Common Council voted to adopt last week. The money taken away from the police department will go to the newly-formed mayor’s permanent task force on anti-racism.

The spending plan also cuts the property tax rate.
