Town Manager's Report - September 8, 2020

Police Department Relocation

I’m pleased to let you know that the Police Department move to the new facility at 110 Addison Road is complete.  The department is now in the process of settling into the new facility.

My sincere appreciation to the Public Building Commission, the entire project team and the general contractor, LaRosa Building Group, for bringing this phase of the Public Safety building project on-line.

A dedication ceremony and building tours are planned for Saturday, September 26th.  The dedication ceremony will be at 9:30 AM and small group tours will take place up to 11:30 AM.

 

Renovation & Expansion of Future Fire and EMS Facility

Phase II of the Public Safety Complex building project entails renovating and expanding the 340 Bloomfield Avenue facility for the fire department and emergency medical services.  The general contractor has started the initial site and utility relocation work.

The fire department will continue to respond to emergency calls from this location.  Fire Department administrative offices have been relocated to a trailer on the west side of the building and a few larger trailers are being used to house fire department equipment and supplies.

This project is expected to take 12 to 14 months to complete.

 

East Barber Street Boat Launch Activity

This past Sunday there was unusually heavy use of the East Barber Street boat launch area.   Apparently there was a very large regional jet ski club or group using several boat ramp locations along the CT River causing congestion at each of them.  The CT Department of Energy and Environmental Protection closed the East Barber Street boat ramp area and requested individuals to leave the area as there was too much congestion/overcrowding and persons were not adhering to proper safety measures.  Windsor Police assisted the DEEP in clearing the area.  Separately, on Sunday, the volunteer fire department was dispatched to the river to assist a boater.

 

November 3rd Election

Polls will be open from 6 AM to 8 PM on November 3, 2020 for the Presidential Election. To register to vote you must be a U.S. citizen, a CT resident and 18 by 11/3/2020.  If you can’t make it to the polls, you can vote via absentee ballot.

This election, the state is sending registered voters an application for an absentee ballot. You’ll need to complete and return the application to the Town Clerk (via mail or drop box which is located at the back of town hall) as soon as possible to receive an absentee ballot mailed directly to your home.
