Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton says the City is working on it. That's his response to comedian John Oliver offering to donate $55,000 to Danbury-area charities, including $25,000 for teacher requests on Donors Chose, if the city renamed the sewer plant after him. If not, Oliver said he would make charitable donations to “rival” towns including Waterbury and Torrington.
Boughton plans to release a response by the end of the week.
He said the City Council would have to approve any renaming of the sewage plant. The City Council is holding their regular monthly meeting tonight. A new name for the sewer plant is not on their agenda, but could be discussed tonight as an add-on item.
He added that it's very generous, appreciated, and just a great distraction for people to get laughs.
