Danbury officials say The Danbury Whalers are up to date on payments for the security and public safety presence at games so far this hockey season. City Finance Director David St Hilaire was asked at the most recent City Council meeting about the Whalers putting a sizeable down payment on the debt owed.
Mayor Mark Boughton says he does not expect a change in the number of police needed at each game, but the fire marshal presence will be decided on a game-by-game basis, based on attendance and other factors.
City officials say they received payments for the public safety service for October and November's games. The team will take part in a payment plan to pay off the back monies owed to the City.
