First Selectman Freda Announces
Central Block Improvements Begin
First Selectman Michael J. Freda announced today that the Town of North Haven's Finance Department in conjunction with its Grantor, the State of Connecticut's Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) has awarded the Central Block Improvements Bid to B & W Paving and Landscaping, LLC. of Waterford, Connecticut.
B & W will commence with rebuilding a portion of North Haven’s Central Block area to optimize parking layout, improve pedestrian safety, create green space, improve drainage, and allow police and fire department responder access to Broadway. The Scope of the Work includes the demolition of existing conditions, the construction of new pavement surfaces, the installation of pipes and drainage structures, the laying of electrical conduits, and an overall improvement of landscaping.
Construction is slated to begin in early October and will be substantially complete by the end of the year, weather permitting.
The project is fully funded through the State of Connecticut’s Small Town Economic Assistance Program (STEAP) Grant and totals three hundred and twenty two thousand dollars ($322,000) for all work completed within the Scope.
“We remain focused on improving the Town’s infrastructure because these improvements to our Central Block, which also includes our police department renovation, continue to be a critical emphasis of this Administration to ensure that our Town residents reside in a town that they can continue to be proud of”, First Selectman Freda stated.
“It is also critical that North Haven keep up with and/or exceed its capital improvement demands to retain our AAA Standard and Poor’s (S & P) highest bond credit rating. Projects such as these are critical components to S & P’s evaluations and are included in the overall rating equation.” Freda added.
“Public Works’ engineering staff has been working very closely with the TPA Design Group of New Haven. TPA was selected for their extensive work in planning, engineering and landscape design and has provided the Town with a phased approach to Central Block Improvements given the grant dollars available to complete the project.” Director Lynn K. Sadosky stated.
Further information on the Central Block Improvements project may be obtained by contacting the Department of Public Works Engineering Department at (203) 239-5321, extension 430.

Richard A. Werner, Chairman
Water Pollution Control Authority
Dear Residents and Business Owners of the Town of North Haven:
Average annualized sewer costs of the rate structures reported in a survey was $472. The cost of sewer service has increased 16% over 3 years.
One of the most commonly reported challenges facing water systems across Connecticut is our aging infrastructure. A rate structure designed to provide sustainable revenue for Operations and capital programs is critical to assure reliable and effective sewer protection.
In 1991, we made a conscious investment as a Community to upgrade and rehabilitate our wastewater and sewer treatment facility in order to provide effective and efficient sanitary sewer services to property owners connected to our public sewer system. We have enjoyed the benefits of that multi-million-dollar investment for the past 27 years. However, as the facility has begun to age we have recently seen increased costs of maintenance and less efficient operation of the plant. As a result, we commissioned a study of the operational status of our current facilities which included a capital improvement plan to be implemented over the next 5-10 years. Spreading those costs of those improvements over a longer period of time will also permit them to be absorbed into our budget gradually without the need for a significant spike in the cost of providing those services in the event of a catastrophic failure.
We have enjoyed the benefits of our public sewer system at an annual fee of $270. Other current annual sewer use fees are $450 in the Town of North Branford, $383 in the Town of Cheshire, $468 in the Town of Wallingford, $425 in the Town of Orange and $449 for Greater New Haven. In order to meet the challenges of maintaining and updating the facilities which are approaching the end of their useful life, we anticipate an increase in the sewer use fee to permit us to undertake these repairs over the next 10 years. We will do so with sensitivity realizing an increase will have an impact on your personal and/or business budgets. This increase will allow us to maintain the facility so that we can all enjoy the benefits of the services it will provide us for the next 30 years.
We will hold a public hearing during the month of September to discuss our annual sewer use fee in light of the long-term capital improvement plan to maintain the facility. We invite you to attend that hearing so that you might participate in the process with us.
Very truly yours,
Members of the Town of North Haven Water Pollution Control Authority
