Covelle has been under scrutiny since a federal audit report released in April raised issues with the authority's financial practices. Shortly after the audit, reports surfaced that Covelle allegedly hired close friends and family for jobs and contracts.
Gov. Deval Patrick and Medford Mayor Michael McGlynn have both urged Covelle to resign. He had been on unpaid leave since late April.
