Here is a link to that posting http://wethepeoplehartford.blogspot.com/2017/05/wrong-wrong-wrong-let-me-just-say-it.html
This morning, Chief Rovella clarified in an email to all HPD personnel that "by no means will the Police Department pay overtime or credit Compensatory hours for attendance"
I haven't heard from anyone today that was upset or planning to put in for overtime for attending. In fact most were encouraged by Bronin's attempt to clarify information, or misinformation, regarding HPD's ongoing negotiations.

Subject: RE: Conversation with the Mayor
For clarification purposes only, the conversation with the Mayor is not mandatory attendance, it is in fact optional. The Mayor is making himself available to employees of different departments, including the Police Department, to respond directly to your questions and address your concerns. I picked one of the earlier blocks of time available.
By no means will the Police Department pay Overtime or credit Compensatory hours for attendance.
I hope to see as many people that can attend tomorrow at Quirk beginning at 4:00 pm.
As always, best regards.
