GUILFORD, CT – The Board of Selectmen last week unanimously approved up to $40,000 to fix a flaw at the Sachem’s Hollow wastewater treatment plant.
The city will use American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds for the work.
According to Gloria Nemczuk, chairwoman of the Guilford Housing Authority, an annual cleaning discovered a leak in one of the facility’s tanks. The Housing Authority received three bids to replace all three tanks, ranging from $35,000 to $38,000.
Hoey said he believes the situation is a good use of ARPA funds because the money would be used for infrastructure improvements.
Nemczuk said the repairs would deplete Housing Authority funds because Boston Terrace’s roof still needs repairs.
According to board meeting minutes, there is a possibility that the board could request additional funding if necessary.
