Documents: West Haven officials were paid at least $60,000 for COVID compensatory time

WEST HAVEN — Several high-ranking and salaried City Hall officials collected a total of more than $60,000 in compensatory payments from the city’s allocation of federal pandemic relief CARES Act funding by the end of 2020, according to city documents.

Seven employees who worked as either department heads in City Hall or were otherwise salaried officials earned a total of at least $61,000 in overtime compensatory payments reportedly related to the city’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic — which was reimbursed from the city’s $1.2 million allocation of federal money from the Trump administration. Seven of the payments were dated Dec. 31, 2020; a payment to an eighth worker was paid in 2021.

The information on the payments was provided by the New Haven-based law of firm Lynch, Traub, Keefe & Errante, which is working on behalf of the city.

The Register first reported in September that some city employees and administrators had been paid overtime or compensatory money with COVID-19 relief funds, in some cases thousands of dollars, with officials saying it was for extra hours worked during the pandemic. Mayor Nancy Rossi has said the overtime expenditures were appropriate.
