New Fairfield is joining the towns of Ridgefield and Newtown in hiring a law firm to intervene in PURA Investigation of Eversource Response to Tropical Storm Isaias. First Selectman Pat Del Monaco and Selectman Khris Hall voted in favor of a retainer agreement put together by Cohen and Wolfe. Hall says this would give New Fairfield formal standing in the matter and will let PURA know the Town’s experience and dissatisfaction of the Eversource’s response. Selectman Kim Hanson questioned the cost of the retainer and whether funds can be recouped through this agreement. He doesn't see the financial upside, with costs that the town has little to no control over. He also believes the documentation can be submitted without this representation.
