Even though the Newtown High School addition project was cleared for occupancy in 2011, the project was just closed out. The Public Building and Site Commission made the certification, after a leak in the area of the rear cafetorium was finally addressed. Commission chairman Robert Mitchell told the Newtown Bee that $350,000 was used to rebuild part of the exterior wall and the roof. The Commission has sent the information to the First Selectman's office and the town attorney to consider why the town, not the contractor, paid the money for the fix.
