Bloomfield Fire District Employee Terminated Over PPP Loan – NBC Connecticut – About Your Online Magazine

A Connecticut fire department sacked the employee who obtained a loan from the Salary Protection Program who raised doubts last year.

NBC Connecticut Investigates found that Blue Hills fire department commissioners voted to remove CFO Errol Bartley from office on Monday night.

Bartley did not attend the meeting.

In October 2020, Bartley said he decided to get the PPP loan for the good of the district, without first consulting the fire commissioners.

Several commissioners said the district did not need the PPP funds and were trying to return them.

During the pandemic, forgivable PPP loans were established by the federal government, primarily to help small and medium-sized businesses.

NBC Connecticut Investigates was unable to contact Bartley for comment.
