Winsted selectmen take first step to repair roads, fix lake drainage

Voters will soon be asked to approve an ambitious spending proposal that will launch road repair projects, repair drainage around Highland Lake, provide a new ladder truck for the fire department and begin payments on Hinsdale School’s renovation. “The Board of Selectmen can vote to approve this bond resolution (for $24.700 million) and set the town meeting and referendum dates,” Rybacki said. “What this resolution does is appropriates the money for bonding, giving you the authority to spend the money.” Money will come to Winsted as the projects progress, the bond attorney said. The tax rate impact hasn’t yet been determined and wasn’t discussed at the meeting. It’s likely that when the proposal goes to the town meeting, those questions could be answered.
