DERBY — The City Board of Aldermen and Aldermen has reinstated Finance Director Agata Herasimowicz. But the city was in no rush for her to resume her duties.
The board reinstated Herasimowicz on June 29 during a sometimes contentious meeting. She has been on administrative leave since March due to allegations that she improperly spent city funds. But as late as July 6, she didn’t have a clear return date and was sending emails to city officials expressing an urgent need to return to work on city finances.
