Two of the five towns surrounding Candlewood Lake are opposed to a budget increase for the Candlewood Lake Authority. The Newstimes reports that Sherman and New Milford believe the budget might need to be reevaluated. If three of the five towns approve their contributions, all five are required to pay.
Brookfield and New Fairfield officials have each proposed the $79,900 in their local budgets. Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton is expected to present his budget to the City Council next month.
The contribution is $2,100 more than this year. The published report says the Authority is facing a $6,400 hike in rent for their New Milford office.
