From The First Selectman's Office

Senator Eileen Daily has committed her entire life to being a public servant. She has served with distinction as a Westbrook resident in many different capacities including First Selectman.

Her legislative achievements benefited all of the municipalities she represented. As Chair of the Bond Commission, she was instrumental in Westbrook securing the much needed funds to dredge the Patchogue River which restored the marine industry.

I know I speak for all of the municipal employees when I tell you that she will be deeply missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family.

Notice of Public Informational Meeting related to the replacement of Bridge 154-002 Winthrop Road over Falls River, Westbrook, CT

On behalf of the Town of Westbrook, Woodard & Curran will host a Public Informational Meeting on Wednesday August 05, 2015 in the Multi-Media Room at the Westbrook Town Hall located at 866 Boston Post Road beginning at 7:00pm.

The meeting will provide an informational forum related to the planned replacement of Bridge No. 154-002 which carries Winthrop Road over the Falls River, adjacent to the spillway from Messerschmidt Pond. The Town of Westbrook received a funding commitment from the Local Bridge Program for Fiscal Year 2015 and a recent extension based on the difficult winter weather of last year. Although the bridge structure is located entirely within the town of Westbrook, some associated roadway work will occur in Deep River as the town boundary divides the project limits.

All interested parties are welcome to attend the meeting which will provide project details related to the planned bridge replacement, answer questions and solicit public input.

We look forward to presenting the details of this important project and answering any questions related to the plans. If you have any questions about the meeting, please feel free to contact me at smedeiros@woodardcurran.com or (860) 265-8069.
