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. It also concluded that tens of thousands of dollars in parking meter payments were missing and may have been stolen.
Two parking meter technicians were placed on unpaid leave, the city said last month.
