TRUMBULL, Conn. -- The Trumbull Finance Board and Town Council recently approved money for school bonding and public works projects, while at the same time slashing money from several projects favored by residents and some elected officials, said the Trumbull Times.
Among the projects approved was $1.4 million in public works, $658,500 for highway vehicles, $568,000 for Water Protection Control Authority projects, $451,200 for needed upgrades and repairs to the Trumbull Police Department, $400,000 for city engineering, $250,000 to restore Beaches Pool and $190,000 to install a new roof at the Trumbull Library, said the Trumbull Times. At the same time, a $398,000 project to update Long Hill Green and $197,000 for repairs to the senior center were denied, said the Trumbull Times.
Also, amid the $2.5 million in cuts was $250,000 to build a new playground at Indian Ledge Park, which some residents say creates a safety hazard for children, added the Trumbull Times.
