A hold on the disbursal of state grant money to Middletown remains in effect until the borough submits a completed audit covering the use of grant fund proceeds by the Greater Middletown Economic Development Corp. from 2008 to 2010, authorities say.

 

State Rep. John Payne, whose office represents most of Middletown, told the Press And Journal that the hold impacts hundreds of thousands of dollars, including a $250,000 grant to help the Middletown Volunteer Fire Department pay off the new addition to the fire house on Adelia Street.
