Nearly $800,000 in bond money is on the state Bond Commission Agenda for New Fairfield Library. Representative Jan Giegler says the funding will be put toward construction costs, an elevator and energy conservation projects among other items. She says investments in resources for the entire community pay dividends well past the initial cost.
Representative Richard Smith called the library a focal point of the community and says he's pleased the state tax dollars will be invested in the town.
The Bond Commission will meet Friday on the $751,000 allocation and other items.
