by Eugene Driscoll | Jul 29, 2014 6:05 pm

Posted to: Derby

FILE PHOTOBack in March, the Derby Board of Aldermen received a report from an engineering firm saying they needed to make a decision by June 3 on what to do with the city’s aging parking garage on Thompson Place.

Just how lousy were the fireworks at the conclusion of the Ansonia Summerfest at Nolan Field July 19?

“IS THAT IT?” some yelled angrily from Wakelee Avenue. They weren’t being divas.

The underwhelming $5,500 “flare show” caused city officials to stop payment on a check issued to the company that put on the disappointing display.

The show simply wasn’t what Ansonia ordered, according to city officials.

“The moment the fireworks ended I ran to talk to the guy doing the display,” Chris Tymniak, Ansonia’s chief administrative officer, said Monday (July 28). “We immediately stopped payment on the check.”
