The Candlewood Lake Authority dedicated a new Patrol Boat this morning for the CLA Marine Patrol. The boat is replacing a 2002 vessel which had to be taken out of service due to hull issues. 60% of the cost of the boat was paid for through a Connecticut Intertown Grant Equipment grant. Sherman First Selectman Clay Cope helped secure the grant with the support of elected officials from New Milford, Danbury, Brookfield and New Fairfield. The dedication ceremony was held at Sherman Town Park near the boat launch.
