The first round of audits into how special municipal aid is spent in New Jersey should be released next week.
The Department of Community Affairs began auditing towns that get special aid this year. Towns receiving municipal aid came under fire following a March report by the state comptroller.
"Special municipal aid was supposed to be temporary," says Assemblyman Declan O'Scanlon. "Some of these cities have been getting it for 11 years with not much to show for it."
Audits for Newark, Camden and Union City won't be released until July, after this year's budget has been decided. Gov. Corzine is currently asking for $140 million in special municipal aid.
