Connecticut's new Municipal Accountability Review Board will meet Friday for the first time to introduce its members and plan future meetings.

The 11-member group was established by the biennial budget that Gov. Dannel P. Malloy signed into law on Oct. 31. In mid-November, Malloy seated his three appointees to the newly formed state board to help Hartford and other ailing communities avoid bankruptcy.

Board members are responsible for working with cities and towns in order to provide early intervention and technical assistance if needed, and to help financially distressed municipalities avoid insolvency or bankruptcy in exchange for greater accountability.

The meeting is set for 10 a.m. in conference room AB at the state Office of Policy and Management, 470 Capitol Ave., Hartford. Photo ID is required to enter the building.
