Ansonia Food Waste Plant Faces Uphill Battle

by Ethan Fry | Oct 16, 2014 8:57 pm

Posted to: Ansonia, Your Right To Know

FILEThe prospects of a plan to put a $20 million food waste-to-energy plant on Ansonia’s North Division Street are looking increasingly bleak, if the questions from local lawmakers are any indication.

On Tuesday several Aldermen raised doubts about the project for about a half-hour at their regular monthly meeting as Chris Timbrell, a principal partner for the company that wants to build the plant, tried to quell their concerns.

Meanwhile, city officials have postponed a trip they had tentatively planned to Orlando, Fla. to see a similar facility there.

Posted to: Ansonia, Derby, Oxford, Seymour, Shelton

GovMalloyOffice on TwitterThe chief of the Derby Storm Ambulance and Rescue Corps said his volunteers were trained last week on how to handle patients with Ebola-like symptoms and are working with Griffin Hospital to coordinate a response should a person with symptoms of the disease appear locally.

“I think, all in all, we’re in pretty good shape to handle something should it happen,” Storms Chief David Lenart said earlier this week.

Ebola was the story of the day in Connecticut Thursday, after a Yale doctoral student was admitted to the hospital Wednesday night after showing “Ebola-like symptoms.”

Ansonia Hopes To Lure Developer To City-Owned Buildings

by Ethan Fry | Oct 16, 2014 8:53 am | Comments (1)

Posted to: Ansonia

FILEThe City of Ansonia is in talks to sell two buildings it owns downtown to the developer who purchased most of Farrel Corp.‘s properties nearly two years ago.

The general idea — make the redevelopment of the city-owned parcels, which sit next to the former Farrel property, easier by combining them under one owner who could develop them all together, rather than piecemeal.

At the same time, the city would look to insert a “clawback” clause into any contract to sell the buildings calling for the redevelopment within a certain period of time.

Posted to: Shelton

FILEPeople of Shelton — the police do not want to cordon off your neighborhood, evacuate homes, and send snipers through backyards every time they respond to a 911 call.

The standoff was resolved peacefully when a 41-year-old man who lives on the road surrendered to police after negotiating with Sgt. Peter Zaksewicz and Officer John Napoleone for nearly three hours.

Women with dense breast tissue face a higher risk of breast cancer, according to the American Cancer Society.

They are also more likely to have an inaccurate mammogram.

Cassetti Talks Surplus, Blight Fight During ‘State Of The City’ Address

by Ethan Fry | Oct 10, 2014 9:09 am | Comments (6)

Posted to: Ansonia

Ansonia Mayor David Cassetti predicted a multi-million dollar surplus in the city’s budget and said there is a new tenant for the former Healey Ford property during his first “State of the City” address Thursday.

But the surplus isn’t yet finalized, he and advisers said, and they declined to provide much detail on the old car dealership, including who’s moving in.

(The Valley Indy learned of the potential buyer, though, and the info is listed below)

Their point, though — the city is headed in a far better direction than it was when Cassetti took the reins of municipal government late last year.
