In his report to the board, First Selectman Jim Brinton discussed Covid-19, noting he can’t wait until that topic is no longer on the agenda.

He said case numbers are on the rise, promised to put out the best information possible and urged people to stay at home.

Noting the storm that was expected from Christmas Eve into Christmas Day, Mr. Brinton said he would anticipate flooded basements and roads and some power outages.

He noted that utility and public works employees would not attempt to address issues until winds fall below 30 mph in order to keep safe work conditions.

Referring to the work of the Sustainability Committee, Mr. Hubelbank said he’d heard from Sustainable CT, learning that there might be funding for solar power projects. “I’ll bring some more information.”
