New Fairfield begins curbside brush clean-up
NEW FAIRFIELD — A company will spend the next month clearing roadside brush as part of the town’s clean-up efforts following May’s macro-burst.
Crews began removing the brush Tuesday and will continue to do so from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week until the work is complete, according to an update from First Selectman Pat Del Monaco.
Town roads have been seperated into seven different color-coded zones for the clean-up, which will tackle approximately one of the zones each week. A map of the zones and a copy of the estimated schedule is available on the town website.
Any significant changes to the schedule will be posted on the town website, Del Monaco said.
Voters recently approved $2.75 million for the curbside brush removal in a town meeting last week. The money will be taken from the town’s budget surplus from this year and its general fund with the expectation that it will be reimbursed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
