BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - Bridgeport’s former mayor has given up in his battle with the current mayor over his property revaluation.

The Connecticut Post reports (https://bit.ly/15SqStn ) that former Mayor John Fabrizi has withdrawn a Freedom of Information complaint with state officials against the city’s tax assessor.

Fabrizi had tried using state Freedom of Information laws to try to receive information from a taxpayer-funded revaluation from Mayor Bill Finch’s administration.

He said if had prevailed, the city would have appealed until another revaluation is done with publicly available data.

At issue is whether the public has a right to look at a revaluation paid for by city taxpayers but was not put in place.

City Attorney Mark Anastasi said selective release of preliminary information would cause confusion, unfairness and inequity in the real estate market.
