Following lengthy discussion at a special town meeting, voters by an 81-to-11 margin have approved borrowing $2.8 million to expand the Hawleyville sanitary sewer system to spur local economic development.
Approximately 100 people attended the February 26 standing-room-only meeting held at Newtown Municipal Center.
Residents are called to a special town meeting scheduled for 7 pm, February 26 in the Newtown Municipal Center’s main council chambers to approve or deny a special appropriation of $2.8 million for the construction phase of a Hawleyville sewer line extension, and to authorize the town issuing bonds to cover those costs.
In recent weeks, the Boards of Selectmen and Finance and the Legislative Council all endorsed the project, which is expected to serve as a catalyst for significant economic development in the Hawleyville area.
