The Cheshire Herald has a new reporter, Josh Morgan. He did this piece on the pool and the pool consultant report. I found this comment interesting:
Town Manager Michael Milone said the meeting next week will be the first in a series of meetings that will hopefully answer some questions the (P&R) commission has.Forgive me, but... wasn't the $20,000 pool consultant report supposed to answer questions about the pool? Perhaps I'm missing something. Regardless, it's good to hear that we'll be having more meetings!
Here's the only article I've seen recently on the garbage removal scandal (AP) that broke last year... the article relates to Waterbury though.
The MRJ blog recently mentioned:
The Islander East is back in the news as it gathers permits locally for pipeline which will run near Thimble Islands down to Long Island and
A coup, for the Cheshire Youth Baseball League to secure a sponsor willing to ante up $800,000 (Any idea on the donor?)
One more reminder that the Chamber will be having a lunch at Elim Park on Friday with keynote speaker Chris Murphy. I'll have to take a half day from work, but I'm hoping to attend.
I think the state Senate has renewed the old "Heart & Hypertension law." Now HB6956 is up for a House vote. If I have this correct, this bill will effectively reinstate the old heart & hypertension law... a costly law. I think Cheshire now has an annual reserve of a few hundred thousand dollars to pay for costs related to this law.
What else is happening?
