Spring 2014 Update:

With the good weather upon us the construction season is in full swing. The restoration of Fernwood, Northwood, Poplar and Mabel Streets will take place this spring with milling of the roadbed with a coarse coat of asphalt and curbing. Damage to lawns and driveways will be addressed at this time. The final paving will take place in the September/October timeframe.

Roads that will be reclaimed and resurfaced this year are Reed Ave (partial), Dale Street, Sutton Drive, Tracy Circle and Polk Lane. A section of Reed Ave between Ellis and Creston along with Reed Court will have the sanitary line replaced and roadbed resurfaced.

Installation of bus shelters on Route 75 and Schoephoester Road are scheduled to be installed in the August – October timeframe. The shelter on Main Street will also be replaced at that time.

As a Town we continue to work through the funding issues in regards to the exit ramp project on Rt.20/Rt.75 on the east side of Rt. 75 The project has received a state project number.  This state project entails reconfiguration of the exit ramp and the alignment of a frontage roadway to allow access to the land mass in back of the Quality Inn for future commercial/residential growth opportunities and to alleviate some of the traffic congestion on the current corridor.

We have met with the State DOT and the engineering consultant STV, Inc to start the engineering study of the train platform relocation to the center of Town. This phase of the project will get the project to a 15% buildup of final design. The remainder of the design will take place when Federal and State funding become available.

A Town Meeting allowed me as the First Selectman to sign the sale agreement with AMTRAK for the purchase of the Historic Station in the center of Town. We have received word that AMTRAK will be signing and the official transfer to the Town should take place late summer.

The leaf dump is open to residents to bring their yard debris and a separate area has been set aside for grass clippings. The site is open from 8:00am – 3:45pm Saturday and Sunday until December.

We have Food Share coming to the Town Hall every other week for the foreseeable future to distribute fruits and vegetables to those in need.  The hours they are at Town Hall are every other week from 9:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.  We ask that you bring your own bags.  If you need further information please call Christina at 860-627-1446.

My office is always available to your inquiries and I may be reached at 860-627-1444 or by email at swawruck@wlocks.com
