Editor's Note: Former First Selectman Kenneth Flatto spoke to Patch late last evening; see the comments section for more on his reaction to the report.

First Selectman office announced earlier today an that former First Selectman overstepped his role regarding the contract.

Flatto told the Fairfield Citizen he felt the report to be "strange" and said his actions saved the town between $30 and $40 million.

Tetreau commissioned the firm McCarter and English to undertake the investigation, according to information released by the First Selectman's office. The counsel found that the Town Charter did not give Flatto the authority to enter into building agreeements with the state and BlackRock Realty for the new train station.

Tetreau also accepted Town Attorney Richard Saxl's resignation today after asking him to step down in light of the report.
