Suffolk County prosecutors are investigating possible corruption in Revere’s parking meter system that may account for about $90,000 being missing, city officials said.

The disclosure came as city councilors criticized Mayor Brian Arrigo for his handling of a probe that grew out of an audit of city finances. The audit, launched in March 2016, found more than $2 millionsitting in idle accounts.
