Sign thieves at large

NORTH CANAAN — A late August joy ride has left North Canaan to deal with missing signs, skid marks, and a toppled porta potty. The Board of Selectmen reviewed the damage during a Sept. 5 meeting.

“They knocked out the porta potty, they did donuts around the trees, and they took all the signs from Sam Eddy Field,” said First Selectman Charles Perotti, adding some signs were also taken from streets between Town Hall and Allyndale Road. 

Most of the stolen signs were tossed in the swamp behind the Little League field and have been recovered, but others remain missing. 

Resident Trooper Jeremy Ribadeneyra reported he is still looking for the bandits. 

Electric vehicle charging stations have been installed at the municipal parking lot on Railroad Street and have been approved for use by the building official. Perotti said a meeting with Eversource was scheduled complete the setup and set a price per kilowatt hour before activating the chargers. 

The Board announced that $37,000 worth of grant money is available to North Canaan businesses looking to improve exterior facades. For over a decade the Facade Grant program has helped give local shops a fresh face.

“The grants are for businesses in town that want to spruce up the front of their buildings,” said Perotti. 

The application is available online at www.northcanaan.org/events/grant-application
