HARTFORD Mayor Pedro Segarra said Monday he would ban the use of all city-issued credit cards for business-related entertainment, following a recommendation by the city’s internal audit commission.

The commission, after reviewing more than 400 purchases made with the credit cards, recommended better oversight and enforcement of spending policies, and urged a ban on use of the cards for dining and entertainment. The group’s report on the purchasing cards was released Friday.
