A Danbury Police Officer is looking to move into a house owned by the City on the Farrington Woods property. The current tenant of the Chow House has decided not to renew the lease. A Danbury officer has expressed an interest in leasing the Chow House, in a similar situation to the Cottage at Bear Mountain.
City Council President Joe Cavo wrote to the Council that in light of some current events in that area, and because the Bear Mountain lease has proven successful, he believes this arrangement would be beneficial to the City and its interests at that location. Cavo referring to the arrests of 10 men on indecent exposure charges in July on accusations of sexual activity in the parking lot and the wooded park.
Cavo is requesting a committee of the Council be formed at their meeting tonight to look into the proposal.
Peter Elste has been a Danbury Police Officer for 13 years. In exchange for low rent, the tenant is required to conduct security checks and perform caretaking duties.
