The Waterbury Line of the Metro-North Railroad needs some serious attention if we’re serious about reducing traffic congestion here in southern CT.

Ansonia Mayor David Cassetti said Monday (July 28) that the problems plaguing the city’s long-stagnant downtown extend far beyond mere cosmetics.
“Main Street doesn’t just need a facelift,” he said. “It needs a heart transplant.”

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.”
