The governor’s office announced a series of grants Monday under the state’s Small Town Economic Assistance Program (STEAP), including $500,000 for Oxford’s Agnes Schiavi Tetlak Park.

Grants were awarded to 28 towns throughout Connecticut for the purpose of funding a variety of economic development, community conservation and quality-of-life projects.
“These small town grants allow the state to partner with municipalities on projects that will help improve our communities, rebuild our infrastructure, and create jobs,” Gov. Dannel Malloy said. “These are investments that will make our towns a better place to live and work, will increase the quality of life, and help attract economic development and growth.”
Oxford will receive a grant for $500,000 for the design, construction and completion of Phase I of the Agnes Schiavi Tetlak Park project, including excavation, site preparation, utility work and completion of an all-purpose athletic field. The overall project also includes building a pavilion on site.

It has no direct correlation, but is representative of the warped priorities of this town. The STEAP money only covers phase one, then I suppose the rest will go on the backs of the residents.

Dave: Be careful of the self-serving republican who reveals negative information against Temple and McKane. You know who I mean. The one who typically posts "side notes."

Ms. Carol Troublemaker who sows nothing but negative. As my friend Charlie says, "I understand".
