Brookfield signs off on more funding for Candlewood Lake Authority

The Candlewood Lake Authority is getting part of their requested boost in funding.  When the Brookfield Board of Selectmen met this week, they approved $13,611 additional dollars from the contingency fund for the organization.  CLA asked for a 62-percent budget increase for this fiscal year from the five municipalities surrounding the lake, totalling $139,000.  New Milford, New Fairfield, and Sherman officials agreed to meet the authority’s request.  During budget deliberations in Brookfield, the town agreed to about $125,000, but would pay in full if a majority of others approved the total increase.  CLA bylaws call for the the average of the three towns closest to their requested budget be the amount each pay. The Danbury City Council needs to consider increasing the City's contribution.
