Silva said the city should put its liability insurance coverage out to bid in an effort to get better prices.

Mayor Bill Scanlon told councilors that the state Department of Revenue has certified $5.7 million in “free cash” for the city, which he said is the largest amount in his tenure and “possibly in the history of the city.”

Silva said the certification is an indication of good budget management by the mayor and his finance department.

“You don’t get free cash in this magnitude without strong fiscal management,” Silva said.
