The Brookfield Board of Selectmen has approved a request from the Regional YMCA of Western Connecticut to receive Neighborhood Assistance Act funding. First Selectman Steve Dunn says the Y asks for funding each year for their annual support campaign. The program is run through the state Department of Revenue Services, and is no cost to the town. The YMCA is seeking $150,000. They can get donations and the donors can get tax credits.
The Brookfield ordinance about Food Service Establishments was also updated. The change brings the town measure in line with state statute, which says a municipality can withhold or revoke permits for those with delinquent taxes.
The Selectmen also requested Monday that the Board of Finance approve $475,000 in bonding for matching funds for the Brookfield Streetscape Project, Phase 2. They previously approved an application for the money, but not to bond it so the Selectmen want to make sure everything is filed properly. If the Board of Finance approve the request, a Special Town Meeting would be scheduled for July 10 at 6:30pm in Meeting Room 133.
