A waterline was planned for the New School Project in Brookfield and it would need to be in place before the start of construction. Project Manager Greg Dembowski says the waterline would go up Candlewood Lake Road to Huckleberry Hill Elementary School. The estimated cost is about $1.8 million. A special appropriation for the water line extension meets the Governor's Executive Order that a town meeting is not necessary because of the pandemic. The Selectmen then sent the request to the Board of Finance to authorize the special appropriation.
