New Fairfield residents voting today on ARPA projects

10 projects in New Fairfield proposed to be funding with American Rescue Plan Act dollars are up for a vote today.  Some of the funding would go to premium pay for public health and safety employees and volunteer firefighters, grants to local small businesses impacted by the pandemic and an emergency housing fund to help residents on the verge of homelessness.  First Selectman Pat Del Monaco was asked why residents aren't voting individually on the proposals.  She says while one project may not be important to one person, it may be to someone else and there is something for everyone on the table.  Selectman Khris Hall says it's been a long process to bring proposals to a vote so townspeople have had a chance to weigh in.  Details about the projects and a breakdown of funding can be found on the town's website. Voting is being done 8am to 8pm at the New Fairfield Senior Center Community Room.
