A mailer will be created by Brookfield officials to inform residents of the proposed elementary school project.  The mailer will include the overall costs, costs per person and other details.  First Selectman Steve Dunn says they will review the document with legal counsel and it will also go through a review by the state.  He noted that it's illegal to advertise one way or another, using town money.  When a library project was proposed, the library raised private funds for a mailer, which Dunn says anyone can do.  The project includes constructing a building on the Huckleberry Hill campus, tearing down that school and transfer Center School students into the new building.  With anticipated state grant money, the project is pegged at $63.2 million.  A driveway, parking and ball fields would also be added.  The old Center School would be turned over to the town for municipal use.
