A special town meeting has been held in Brookfield tonight to discuss Phase 3 of the Southern Waterline project along Federal Road. The meeting was needed because the cost of the project has nearly doubled. The money for the project is being bonded and will be repaid by users over time, not taxpayers.
Town officials say the construction is more complicated than originally thought and will require about $875,000 not $495,000.
The final part of the project could be completed in a months time once a bid is accepted.
