First Selectman Matt Riiska hopes to have another gas spill informational meeting on Tuesday, August 8. He said work continues on Maple Avenue and is going well.
“We had a really good meeting with everyone last week, he said. “Everyone has worked together cooperatively. Sometimes it’s slow, but it’s slow for a number of reasons. They are excavating 12 to 14 feet deep to remove the contaminated soil. The sewer and water lines are only five or six feet deep and you can’t have them just hanging there.”
