PROVIDENCE – The State Police have agreed to open an investigation into the Central Coventry Fire District, the Coventry legislative delegation announced last week.
The legislators requested that Attorney General Peter F. Kilmartin investigate the fire district’s handling of its pension fund.
The legislators want Kilmartin to look into the district’s failure to make its or employees’ payments into the Municipal Employees Retirement System between December 2011 and September 2012.
The district is currently under control of a special master. The delegation also asked Kilmartin to investigate a loan the district obtained that was not in anticipation of tax revenue, the release said. •
