Town meeting was on money matters

FALLS VILLAGE — The selectmen agreed on four agenda items for a town meeting (which will probably be called for early December) during their regular monthly meeting Monday, Nov. 14.The call for the town meeting will include: two appropriations — of up to $10,900 and up to $28,300 — for the highway department and the assessor’s office, respectively. The appropriations requests received a thumbs up from the Board of Finance at their meeting immediately before the selectmen’s meeting (see story this page).Also on the agenda will be an easement on town-owned property next to the Falls Village Children’s Theater at 103 Main St., and a new contract with the Connecticut Resource Recovery Authority for the transfer station.First Selectman Pat Mechare reported receiving notification that the Small Town Economic Assistance Program grants for the Falls Village Volunteer Fire Department and the Children’s Theater had been extended, as requested, to Dec. 31, 2013, and June 30, 2013, respectively.Mechare also reported that the town water system has sufficient pressure now to install a new fire hydrant on Route 7 between Hamilton Books and Beebe Hill Road.And the selectmen took note of a request to close Page Road for a few hours for a block party in August 2012.Mechare also asked the board to approve a change in the town’s policy on days off for employees — that any day off without pay must be approved by a supervisor, and employees must use sick time first. The selectmen (Chuck Lewis and new member Greg Marlowe) agreed.
