The Hartford City Council Monday night postponed a vote on the appointment of Saundra Kee Borges as Hartford;s permanent Chief Operating Officer. According to sources, councilman Alexander Aponte appeared to be the only solid yes vote for her approval. Councilman Joel Cruz was apparently on the fence and may have been a second yes vote .
Issues over the enforcement of an ordinance prohibiting double dipping by retirees prohibited from returning for more than 6 months played a role. Councilmembers said that the lack of management of the City for the last few months since David Panagore left was more of an issue than the retiree issue.
The Counccil will most likely take up the vote at their first meeting in May, although it appears that there will be little movement in the vote tally
