Danbury City Council asked to sign off on help for furloughed federal employees

Danbury officials will take action to follow up on the state bill approved yesterday to help federal government workers.  Mayor Mark Boughton says that measure allows municipalities to establish a program to defer due dates for any affected federal government employee’s real and personal property or motor vehicle taxes, or water or sewer rates, charges or assessment payments. 

He will ask the City Council at their February meeting to assist the federal employees in Danbury.

Boughton says many Danbury residents who work for the federal government have already been affected by this shutdown and this law will provide a small measure of empathy for a situation that is not of their own making.
