Outdoor wood-burning furnaces banned By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

Installation of new outdoor wood-burning furnaces and boilers was banned on Sept. 28 at North Haven’s annual town meeting. Existing wood-burning furnaces may continue to be used only if registered within 60 days with North Haven’s Department of Public Works. Additionally, existing units must comply with Connecticut’s Department of Environmental Protection regulations, including that they be at least 200 feet from neighboring residences. Furnaces in question are, essentially, wood-firing boilers in small, insulated sheds with smoke stacks. Heated water is carried through underground pipes to warm homes, buildings, domestic hot water, swimming pools, Jacuzzis and hot tubs. “They’re flawed appliances,” said Nancy Alderman at Tuesday’s meeting before vote. Alderman is president of Environment and Human Health, Inc., a non-profit focusing on protecting individuals from environmental harm, which has led banning efforts in North Haven. “One furnace emits the same amount of smoke as 22 indoor wood furnaces,” Alderman said. “And the smoke never gets hot enough to dis-

sipate and move on. The smoke travels in a plume, and hangs low to the ground. Houses in its wake fill with smoke 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The smoke is similar to cigarette smoke.” “People breathing in this smoke are sick,” she continued. “The property values of houses within the vicinity of

Ci

these furnaces go down to almost nothing. People cannot get away from the smoke. They cannot sell their houses. They’re absolutely trapped.” Eleven municipalities in Connecticut have already barred outdoor wood-burning furnaces, according to Alderman, as has the state of

Washington. She said her non-profit recently conducted a study, measuring levels of PM 2.5, or airborne pollutants, in homes near outdoor wood-burning furnaces. “In a house 850 feet away from an outdoor wood-burning furnace, the level of PM 2.5 was six times that of houses not near an outdoor

wood-burning furnaces, and four times above the of EPA standards” she said. Representing North Haven’s Conservation Commission, Hugh Davis supported Alderman. “This summer, the Conservation

One percent raise for department heads passes BOF muster By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

At the Sept. 22 Board of Finance meeting, an agreement was made to send a letter to the Board of Selectmen recommending a one percent raise for North Haven department heads and deputies. A scheduled one percent raise for such personnel was removed from

the current budget during last referendum season. Department heads and deputies received a 1.5 percent raise last year. The Board of Selectmen alone can approve the raise. “Several department heads have requested that their one percent raises be reinstated,” said BOF chairman Richard Monico. “When they first asked for it, I will say, my kneejerk reaction was, ‘No.’ But then I

thought about it a little bit. And maybe I’m wrong, maybe I’m right. But the department heads, last December, when we were expecting a big deficit in the current budget, generated between $700,000 and $800,000 in savings in the expense side of their departments. And I was impressed with that. “They went one step further, knowing that it was a tough budget

year, specifically on the revenue side,” he continued. “They presented us a budget this fiscal year on the expense side that was actually less than the previous year.” Finance Director Ed Swinkowski said granting the increase to North Haven’s five department heads and two deputies would cost approxi-

On Sept. 14, Ward-O’Brien handed in her resignation during the monthly RTC meeting, citing a personal, serious illness which would significantly impede her abilities to lead. “To be the chairman, you really need to be on every day,” she said. “You need to be talking to people, responding to people in an appropriate time.

A touch of Martha Stewart in North Haven By Dave Marchesseault Special to The North Haven Citizen

Magnificent trophies and plaques were awarded to over 25 local winemakers at the ninth annual Day of Wine & Roses festivities, held Sunday at State Street’s Forget Me Not Florist. Sponsored by the local Rotary Club, the occasion attracted over 200 attendants, and several notable wine judges. Sandra Gluck, a highly-acclaimed chef who was trained at the culinary school within New York City College of Technology, volunteered her time as a judge and shared her expertise. She is the author of several cookbooks and talk show host, hailing from Martha Stewart Living Radio on satellite radio. On Sunday, she demon-

Martinek, a sports medicine technician and caterer from Cheshire, were also judges. Another judge was Maria

Carofano, a close friend of the charity fundraiser’s originator and co-chairman, Luigi Nuzzolilo, who credits her with the idea of providing a public event which combines wine and flowers. The owner of the floral shop has hosted the event since its inception and always provides a long stem rose for every female in attendance. The proceeds from the $30 ticket are donated to numerous charitable causes, ranging from high school and college scholarships, to finding cures for childhood cancer and diabetes research. Early reports indicate that approximately $9,000 may have been raised. A “Semi-Pro” category was added this year, due to the submission of several wines that were made under the tutelage of two professional winemakers at The Wine Press located off Exit 9 on I91. In the back corner of the

40-foot wide tent was another newcomer to the program, although a long time contributor to the activity’s buffet tables, Durante’s Pasta, Inc. As friends of last year’s club president, Nick Casella, the family trio served up endless amounts of fresh pasta. The Durante family produced a variety of their gourmet treats on the spot through the utilization of a portable machine which they can bring into any setting, adding to the party atmosphere. The popular shop’s motto is “A taste of Italy at your fingertips.” Described as “family owned since 1985,” the thriving West Haven business located at 78 Fenwick Street is owned and operated by Amedeo and Carmelina Durante, who “immigrated to America from Italy to share their traditions and manufacture homemade pasta for local grocery stores and restaurants.” Their son, Angelo, joined the operation re-

Complementing their pasta offering was a display from the nationally known Grande Cheese Company, whose website describes their products as “Authentic old-world with a new age of craftsmanship.” According to event co-chairman Nick Casella, company representative Lorenzo Durante has been very supportive of Rotary activities in the past. In the opposite corner of the huge tent, with an ad that aptly boasted, “Make your own award winning wines!” stood two good friends of the North Haven Rotary club – Ray Iannuucci and Frank Martone. The affable owners of The Wine Press, which is conveniently located at 118 Quinnipiac Avenue in the Montowese section of the town, hosted a Rotary club meeting and fellowship supper at their establishment shortly after opening their unique enterprise two years ago.

Bucking the trend on Washington Avenue, State Farm has new office

Washington Avenue, a particularly vacant North Haven economic sector, has gained a new financial business. State Farm agent Brendan McCaffery will open an office today, Oct.1, at 444 Washington Ave., offering a myriad of monetary services. “State Farm is known for its insurance,” he said Monday, “but it’s also a bank. You can set up a bank account here. It would be mostly online, but we have ATM cards, checking accounts and CDs.”

“We also offer financial plans,” he added, “like college savings plans. retirement plans and 401k rollovers.” McCaffery is licensed in security and insurance products. Additionally, the shop will include two State Farm employees, licensed to sell life, health, property and casualty insurance policies. McCaffery believes State Farm has cheaper alternatives than other providers of similar services. “A lot of people cannot afford big, expensive brokers to look after their money,” he said. “The important thing is how

much people don’t even understand what they’re paying for because they’ve just always had car insurance, and are used to just paying for it.” “I walk them through their insurances,” he continued. “They might have car insurance with one company, and home insurance with another. State Farm believes combining policies, with discounts, can retain customers longer.” Policies are made personal. “I show customers what they need,” McCaffery said. “I try to get a ‘life picture.’ For example, a young couple

might want to consider this,’” he said. Following State Farm’s procedure for employment, McCaffery created a business plan, which he submitted to corporation officials. After a structured interview with State Farm management, he became an ‘approved candidate’ to oversee an agency. When State Farm decided to open a North Haven address, he successfully applied for the post. “I picked North Haven because I was familiar with it,” he said. “And I looked at the demographics.” “As a new market opportunity, our initial look will be to friends and family,” he added. “On top of that, we have internet leads and direct mail to local zip codes. Possibly one of the most important things is networking.” As so, McCaffery joined the Quinnipiac Chamber of Commerce, and is exploring entrance into other local groups. Washington Avenue

They might want to start a savings plan, or they might want life insurance, should anything happen to one of them.” “That’s what we’re here for, to protect them from everyday risk and to help them prepare for the future,” he added. For McCaffery, the Washington Avenue location represents a homecoming. “I used to run a company three doors down – Circle Media,” he said. “I was there for over 10 years. I was the chief operating officer.” Looking to change careers, McCaffery was pointed to State Farm by a friend who runs an agency in Naugatuck. “He thought it would be a good fit for me because I had 10 years sales experience, and 10 years financial experience,” he said. In May 2009, McCaffery attended a State Farm open house for individuals considering a company career. “I went through and thought, ‘I

Bar owner pleads guilty to tax evasion, awaits sentencing By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

Virginia Mazzaro, owner of local restaurant and sports bar J. Roos, admitted guilt Sept. 22 to filing taxes inaccurately, according to U.S. attorney David Fein. Mazzaro, 62, is alleged to have hidden $1,807,221 in gross receipts generated over a five-year period by her shop from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). She faces a maximum term of imprisonment of three years and a fine up to $100,000. According to court documents and statements made in court, Mazzaro purportedly failed to deposit all cash receipts generated by J. Roos

from the 2004 to 2008 tax years into the store’s business bank account. Instead, the U.S. Department of Justice claims Mazzaro deposited her establishment’s cash receipts into her personal bank account, and then invested most of those funds in certificates of deposit (CDs) at various financial institutions. During this time, Mazzaro also allegedly structured cash deposits into her personal and business bank accounts in an attempt to evade financial reporting requirements for cash transactions exceeding $10,000. Last Wednesday, Mazzaro waived her right to indictment and pleaded guilty be-

fore Senior United States District Judge Alfred V. Covello in Hartford to one count of filing a false federal tax return. In confessing wrongdoing, Mazzaro stated that she knowingly filed materially false federal individual income tax returns during the

five-year period. As a condition of her plea agreement, Mazzaro has paid the IRS $1,412,102.37 in back taxes, penalties and interest. Her sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 14, 2010. Mazzaro’s case was investigated by the IRS Criminal

Investigation department, and is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Douglas P. Morabito. J. Roos, located at 249 State St., often hosts live music, fundraisers and parties, according to its website.

need insurance, so it would be good to have some sort of relationship with the dealerships, as well as nearby mortgage brokers, lawyers and accountants.� On Oct. 14, the Quinnipiac Chamber of Commerce will

hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony, according to McCaffery. Official grand opening will be a few weeks later, he added. McCaffery downplayed mindsets that Washington Avenue is still sinking eco-

nomically. “Everyone talks about this area being the doldrums,� he said. “Route 5 is busy. And there’s a lot of traffic on this street. There’s a lot of opportunity for business in this area and on this street.�

Back again this year by popular demand was Rich DiPalma, a well known teacher of Italian at the town’s middle school, who is also a professional singer. DiNorscia said that he’s “grateful for [DiPalma’s] ongoing generosity.� The tenor’s familiar melodies filled the air for much of the afternoon. His talents don’t end there, however, as he and friend Jeff Briglia won the second place in the wine judged professionally under the category of Single Varietal. Nuzzolillo announced that the first place winners judged by the professionals in this year’s competition were: Mario DiGioia (Single Varietal), John Chiari (Red Blend) and Jonathan Martinek (White & Specialty, and the Semi-pro Division.) The first place winners whose wines were judged by the public were: Brian Testa (Single Varietal), Sonny Palmucci (Red Blend), and Jonathan Martinek (White & Specialty.)

Gluck, who co-hosts a daily cooking program at noon with Betsy Karetnick on satellite radio (Sirius 112 & XM 157) entitled “Everyday Food,� said that she had first heard of Martinek when he called into her show. Gluck, who has also been a freelance writer for Good Housekeeping and Family Circle, commented that “Jon’s very serious about his cooking,� adding that he had invited her to attend the Rotary club’s first Mardi Gras style dance last winter, as well as making a trip to The Wine Press. She described the eight year club member as a “very nice guy and a very good cook.� Now she can add “prize winning winemaker� to the list.

Town to host workshop on youth drug abuse By Linda Semple Special to North Haven Citizen

North Haven is proud to host free parenting classes this October on drug abuse, given the alarming statistics among our youth. Recently, the founder of The Courage to Speak Foundation, Ginger Katz, shared how she lost her 20-year-old

son to a heroin overdose with local students and parents. Katz discussed ways to help your child if you suspect they are using drugs and alcohol. Materials were handed out to parents at the end of the session to further discussion with their children. Parents are invited to attend a month-long series of workshops on drug prevention. Classes will take place

at Town Hall on Tuesdays, Oct. 5, 12, 19 and 26 from 7-9 p.m. The North Haven Substance Abuse Prevention Council will be sponsoring this program. Jay McGuinness, a council member of the council, who has been trained by Katz’s foundation, said, “Children are less likely to use drugs or alcohol if they regularly attend religious

Health Briefs

services, eat dinner with the family and have two or three adults in their life that they can count on.” These classes are not just about drug and alcohol prevention but how to help kids make smart decisions, how to keep a family together during turbulent times and knowing when to get help. McGuinness, Sgt. Marc Fasano and Barbara Hoff-

man will be speaking to the group of parents. If you haven’t registered, walk-ins are welcome for one or all classes. You do not need to attend every session though you are welcome to do so. For additional information, contact Jay McGuinness at 203-985-4845, by email at jmcguinness@unitedmortgage.com or visit www.couragetospeak.org.

Letters to the Editor

Experienced leadership

To the editor: I am writing to encourage all North Haven voters to support our State Representative Steve Fontana, the hardest working public servant I know. There is no doubt that Fontana works tirelessly on behalf of all North Haven residents and he delivers — constituent services, state aid, thoughtful legislation and dependable advocacy, which together demonstrate that Fontana’s priority is to serve the best interests of our town. Fontana is always there for each and every one of us. Despite his long record of accomplishment, Fontana does not rest on his laurels. Over the past two years, he has served as the chairman of the Insurance & Real Estate Committee. In that role, he has worked on a collaborative, bipartisan basis to pass numerous pieces of leg-

islation to protect consumers and improve health insurance coverage. We can all be proud of the work Fontana has done to make our state a better place to live. Now more than ever we need experienced leadership that gets results, so I believe the choice is clear. Please vote for Fontana so he can continue to fight for us. Janet M. McCarty Former First Selectman

Friend and mentor To the editor: I am writing to express my support for the candidacy of David Yaccarino, who is running to represent the 87th District in the Connecticut General Assembly. I met Yaccarino when I was eight years old. His oldest son and I were classmates and close friends at Clintonville Elementary School. When the two of us wanted to join the Cub Scouts, both of our fathers volunteered to

become Pack leaders. Over the course of the next 10 years, I was a regular beneficiary of Yaccarino leadership, instruction and guidance at weekly scout meetings, weekend camping trips and service projects. Looking back, I can now see how selfless and tireless Yaccarino was in his dedication to scouting in North Haven. He was a regular presence in my life, and the lives of dozens of other boys my age, week after week. He taught us how to tie knots, how to build a fire and how to live for a week off of materials we could carry on our backs. But more than that, his influence and example showed us how to be leaders and how to serve others. I have come to know Yaccarino very well in the intervening years. He has been a friend and mentor to me through my adolescence and into my adulthood. I have a great deal of admiration for his devotion to his family, and his industriousness as a small-business owner. He

Bad boilers To the editor: High school boilers running on borrowed time? I am a certified heating technician who shares my opinion about the high school boiler issue. People overseeing maintenance issues at our schools may not have as much expertise in boiler operations. Can’t State Representative Steve Fontana change this legislation? When people feel cold, they must turn up the heat. What are the consequences, if they do, knowing a hard winter may break the boilers? The temperature hovers around five degrees. People feel cold and demand more

heat. The boilers are stressed to their limit, running constantly, knowing they might be defective and have structural weakness. Boilers are shut down one by one. It gets cold inside the building. The town is forced to shut down the high school while emergency repairs are being made. This is a race against time, knowing pipes will freeze within hours. Pipes burst and water damages everything inside the school. More repairs must be made. A massive cleanup begins. Computers, electronics, lighting, books, furniture, woodwork, carpeting and ceiling panels must be replaced. Everything must dry out. The school is shut down for a long time. Students must be bussed to other towns, causing classrooms to overflow there. Learning is disrupted as it becomes chaos in a strange place. The boilers in the high school are the only way to heat this massive structure. The boilers are running on borrowed time. The only permanent fix is to replace the boilers. New boiler replacements must exceed Boiler Industry Standards, as the See Letters, next page

Commentary

Taking care of business is good for Connecticut families By State Senator Len Fasano Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, not just because they provide jobs for many people, but also because they bring innovative products and services to consumers. In the towns I represent – North Haven, East Haven, and Wallingford – there are hundreds of small busiFasano nesses which support our local community. In October of 2009, the Small Business Administration reported that Connecticut was home to 75,626 small employers. Although the economy is weak, in our area, we’ve seen a number of small businesses open up this year. Just a few weeks ago, I attended ribbon cutting ceremonies at Mrs. D’s and Amici Hair Salon. There are also a number of other establishments that have recently opened their doors in

ones there now may not. Last school year, $43,000 was spent on boiler maintenance on four-year-old boilers, meaning breakdowns are frequent. There’s nothing else to do, knowing the defective boilers will not last, and shutting down the school in the dead of winter has serious consequences that puts the town into deep debt over many years. Morris Pedersen North Haven

Bipartisan work

To the editor: I am voting for Steve Fontana for State Representative of the 87th District and here is why: Fontana has 14 years of experience working in a bipartisan fashion for the residents of North Haven. He has collaborated with State Senator Len Fasano at the state level and with First Selectman Mike Freda and second selectman Tim Doheny at the local level. He is an experienced leader whose efforts have resulted in state funding for the high school, the Todd Drive project and the public works garage. He continues to promote job creation by increasing small business loans and

Wallingford and North Haven: Farmer Joe’s, Knee-High Tutoring, Shoprite, Good Feet, CR Socials, Insure.net and Sun Nails, to name a few. The men and women who have decided to invest in our community deserve a lot of credit. It is never easy to start a new business venture, and now, more than ever, entrepreneurs face serious challenges. Thankfully, there are many people still willing to take a chance, and it is that attitude that will lead us out of the recession. While my philosophy is that government doesn’t create jobs, people do, the legislature does have a role to play in making Connecticut a more business-friendly place. This past session, we were able to pass a pro-business bill, Public Act 10-75, An Act Concerning the Recommendations of the Majority Leader’s Job Growth Roundtable. Among other provisions, this bipartisan legislation calls for up to $500,000 in loans and lines of credit for small businesses and nonprofits; expands the existing state job creation tax credit to

tax credits, to help terminated employees keep their health insurance, to support programs that reduce electricity rates for seniors and to help towns save money through multi-town opportunities. We need Fontana to continue the fight for North Haven residents. I encourage you to vote for him on Nov. 2, 2010. Patricia Brown Former member of the Board of Finance

Many questions To the editor: After hearing the quasipresentation by the D.E.P. at the North Haven Inland Wetlands meeting on Sept. 22, I am more concerned than ever about the highly contaminated industrial waste that they are trying to pawn off on North Haven. One of their priorities, as they stated, when they clean up an industrial waste site, is to dump it nearby to save trucking expenses. Doesn’t matter where that is, long as it’s close, I guess. They also have other trucks dumping in our Tire Pond. When questioned as to who they are, I believe they stated they are all registered — “registered to whom?” They were off by over 200,000 cubic yards on how much fill they dumped.

Quite a discrepancy wouldn’t you say? Are they even checking what those other trucks are dumping? Then they told us that they screen the fill and only put the good stuff in the pond. If it’s so good, why are they hauling it out of the Hamden yards in the first place? When questioned as to how good, our commissioner was told, “Good enough.” Then he was told there are grades of fill that people can live with, and another nonhuman grade. So, basically, the pond is getting the nonhuman, cancer-causing fill. The D.E.P. should care if this poisonous fill leaches through underground streams, overflows, or the breach collapses and the Tire Pond contaminates the Quinnipiac River, where humans boat and fish. They also did not know where the breach was, when one of the commissioners asked them. But they were the ones who authorized the breach and flooded the pond with the water from the Quinnipiac? It now could be a weak spot in the pond wall. We were informed that they would be monitoring the pond water. For what? They could be contaminating it worse than ever with carcinogenic soil. Of course it is going to get worse. Then See Letters, next page

small businesses; provides financial and technical assistance to established businesses; establishes a green manufacturing pilot program; provides tax credits to encourage private investment in technology-based businesses; and establishes the Connecticut Competitiveness Council. While these programs are important, the real challenge to doing business in Connecticut is directly related to our out-of-control spending. When our state budget increases, the result is higher taxes, higher energy costs and higher property taxes. For example, the budget that passed at the end of the 2010 legislative session established a new tax on electricity to be paid by all Connecticut residents and businesses in order to pay for a budget shortfall. Not only is this irresponsible, but it also is a business and job killer. Even with small pieces of business-friendly legislation, unless there are major changes to the way government is run, businesses will not truly have the opportunity to meet their highest potential.

Colella returns; additional freelancers needed In future issues, the North Haven Citizen will be welcoming back Paul Colella’s most popular columns, including Patriots and Scoundrels. Colella will restart his Remember When series, which explores interesting histories belonging to North Haven residents. Relating shifts in American culture and technology to locals’ distinct pasts, he illuminates important moments in one’s life, recognizing personal struggles and achievements. Patriots and Scoundrels will also make a triumphant return. Picking up where he left off, Colella continues plotting out adventures of North Haven residents from centuries past. Collella’s commentary will also return to the paper’s pages. Additionally, the North Haven Citizen is still seeking a few new freelancers. Reporting on local topics is a terrific way to earn some extra money, improve one’s resume, better one’s writing, and keep in touch with your hometown. If you’re interested in exploring journalism as a career, this is a great chance to boost your portfolio of clips. What we would want is no more than one to two stories a week from individuals connected to the community. Choose your own topics, or select subjects from North Haven Citizen’s own story lists, compiled in-house. This could mean features, profiles, sports, business, education or even covering municipal meetings. Those interested should contact The North Haven Citizen at 203-317-2232, or by email at kswartz@thenorthhavencitizen.com.

The North Haven Citizen — Friday, October 1, 2010

Letters Continued from page 13

what do they intend to do? Dig up a couple of million cubic yards of poison and bring it back to Hamden? They couldn’t seem to stop speaking disparagingly about the absentee owner of the Tire Pond. It was like they were the ‘Knights in Shining Armor’ come to save us. But the absentee owner never dumped industrial chemical waste, to my knowledge, in the pond. There will be another Inland Wetlands meeting at the Park and Recreation Center on Linsley Street at 7 p.m. on Oct. 6. Our State Senator, Len Fasano, and State Representative, Steve Fontana, will be attending. Please attend, and stop the “Angel of Death” from using our town as an industrial waste dump. Joan R. Mazurek North Haven

Stop dumping

To the editor: In 1993, Upjohn stopped operating. They had potentially polluted the Quinnipiac River worse than any manufac-

turer in North Haven. They also contaminated their 80acre site with carcinogenic chemicals. The EPA has authorized Pfizer, the new owner and another drug company, to do remedial work on the heavily contaminated site. It will include capping a one-acre hole, 30 feet deep, filled with carcinogens, dredging, consolidating, covering, acres of poison sites and removing others. Some of the chemicals are benzene, toluene, dichlorobenzidine, benzidine and diozane. Upjohn was subjected to a study due to the incidence of bladder cancers in the area. Over the years, Upjohn was told to remove all the dangerous chemical cesspools off site. But it never happened. Instead, they left us and our future generations this legacy of poisons in the ground. Too little, too late for this remedial work. But it is not too late to save the Quinnipiac River, by stopping the D.E.P. industrial waste dumping in the Tire Pond right now. We should all be the protectors of this beautiful river that meanders through our town. There will be another

North Haven Inland Wetlands meeting and continuation of the public hearing on the Tire Pond, Wednesday, Oct. 6, at 7 p.m. at the Park and Recreation Center on Linsley Street. Our State Senator, Len Fasano, and our State Representative, Steve Fontana, will be there. Robert A. Mazurek North Haven

Ice Cream Social at Montowese

Successful programs To the editor: I urge my fellow voters in North Haven to re-elect Steve Fontana as our State Representative on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 2, 2010. I have known Fontana for many years, and appreciate the fact that he goes to great lengths to solve constituent problems for North Haven residents, while also fighting for all of us when it comes to job creation, education, health care reform and so many other issues that impact our lives. I have noticed that Fontana works very effectively across party lines in order to do what is in the best interest of North Haven resi-

On Sept. 24, the PTSA at Montowese Elementary School hosted a “Welcome Back Ice Cream Social” from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Families and students were invited to enjoy ice cream sundaes and start the new school year off with a sweet treat. dents. Fontana works very well with our Republican First Selectman Michael Freda and Republican State Senator Leonard Fasano. The maturity and respect that these three civic leaders show toward each other is essential to getting things done for the people. We are fortunate to have had Fontana as our State Representative for the last 14 years. I urge my fellow citizens to return Fontana to Hartford so he can build upon the successful programs he has initiated for all of us. Kim Karlin North Haven

Summaries for North Haven Youth Football week five

North Haven Youth Football had another stellar week, posting a 4-2 record. North Haven 8th grade (41) defeated Old Saybrook on Sunday, with Jay Jones scoring on a pass by Zachary Kastenhuber. Additionally, JB Boggs scored behind the blocking of Jeff Ranciato and Pat Vanavore. The defense held Old Saybrook to six points, behind the tough play of Joe Corniello, Tom Gallagher and Hunter Coughlin.

Friday, October 1, 2010 — The North Haven Citizen

Banned Continued from page 1 Commission looked into this,� he said. “We came to the conclusion that these furnaces should be banned.� “The EPA has declared these furnaces’ emissions as very toxic, and detrimental to health,� he added, “especially to children, the elderly and anybody with cardiovascular and respiratory diseases.� Several speakers opposed the ban, citing a fear of personal freedoms being impinged. Dissenters suggested, as compromise, allowing only EPA-approved furnaces. Alderman said EPA standards have yet to include outdoor wood-burning furnaces. “This really has nothing to do with freedom,� she continued. “One used to be free to put asbestos in houses.� “We all have to think about what are our rights?� she

added. “Do we care that our neighbors are getting sick?� Voting included calls for and against the banning. The ‘ayes’ were more numerous and given victory. The approved ordinance is on file with North Haven’s town clerk. According to the ordinance, it is now a violation to construct, install, establish, modify, operate or make use for any reason of outdoor wood-burning or wood-fired furnace or boilers. A fine of $250 will be imposed for each violation, according to the ordinance. Each day of operation is considered a separate violation. Other town meeting votes included: acceptance of Cavallino Way as a new North Haven road, the adoption of an amended flood damage prevention ordinance, and the transfer of $381,105.96 within the 2009-10 budget for balancing purposes.

mately $6,600 in total. “It’s not significant dollars,� Monico said. “As far as I’m concerned, it would be something they would have to absorb from their own departments’ budgets.� “Department heads stepped up to the plate,� he continued. “It’s more of a gesture, thanking them for their work, for their dedication in last year’s budget, and how aggressive they were in this year’s budget. I see the upside, I see the downside. “I sometimes like to give a person a pat on the back for doing well. Even though we expect them to do well, I think they went a little beyond,� he added. Board member Michael Hallahan was cautiously in favor. “There are some people in town, the unemployed,

ment against that is the incredible increase in cost of the benefits that they get to maintain year in, year out.� Public opinion, however, could differ. “One percent seems a very nominal cost,� Hallahan said. “But, symbolically, you’re playing with fire here.� First Selectman and board member Michael Freda had high praise for the department heads and deputies. “I am very pleased with the efforts of the department heads, particularly since Dec. 1,� he said. “We’ve had several meetings with department heads . . . They’ve responded tremendously in terms of slowing down spending, cutting costs, making sacrifices.� “As we move forward in difficult times, I have confi-

who would be against any increase at any time for any reason,� he said. “And we have to think about those people.� “But I see the motivation for rewarding the department heads for doing a fantastic job,� he added. “I see the total expense of this being a very reasonable amount.� Hallahan believed a raise would work toward retaining talent in town hall. “I want to keep the department head salaries competitive versus other towns,� he said. “When you lose someone good, you’re going to regret it.� “Having saved $700,000 or $800,000, if your numbers are correct, is going beyond expectations,� he added. “One and a half, and now one, that sounds in line with what most of the unions have been getting.

dence they’ll continue to respond well in terms of doing everything to represent the best interests of the taxpayers in terms of looking at their individual departments as if they’re their own companies,” he added. Although she eventually gave her support, board member Dyann Vissicchio reminded her peers to consider both sides. “It’s a double-edged sword,” she said. “If you’re in corporate America, if you do a good job and save money, 1142798

“We still have this discussion with the Board of Ed about this one percent that’s been going on for quite awhile with the teachers’ union,” she added. “It was discussed at the last Board of Ed that it wasn’t really in the contract, and there was a lot of emotion about the thought that the teachers might be getting one percent, even though their benefits did go up.” At first, board member William Kohlhepp said, he was concerned about setting a poor precedent in light of future contract negotiations. However, he decided one percent was a small enough figure not to warrant anxiety.

“I think we can certainly absorb that expense in the existing line items,” he said. “It’s not a huge amount. They certainly deserve a great deal of credit for getting us to the position where we actually continued to run the town last year within the revenues we actually had. It was on their backs that we accomplished what we did on the expense side.” Nevertheless, Kohlhepp urged acknowledgement that recessionary times persist. “When we originally gave them the one percent, we assumed some financial conditions,” he said. “Now we’re thinking of reinstating the one percent.

financial conditions changed? Are we feeling comfortable with that?” “I would do it based on the fact that it’s an affordable amount of money, and we probably shouldn’t have made that cut,” he added. “At that time we were trying to make every possible cut, and at this point I feel a one percent raise is a reasonable thing to give them.” All board members present spoke in favor of drafting a letter for North Haven’s Board of Selectmen. During public comment, Chief of Police James DiCarlo thanked the board members for considering the raise.

you’re not rewarded. Everybody did a good job — it was truly a team effort — but, in being at some of these budget meetings, and listening to the public and the concerns, we have to take that into consideration.” Vissicchio recalled contention during budget debates, especially with North Haven’s Board of Education. “We have to think about what we heard from the public, and how they would feel,” she said. “It was a big concern during budget time – every bit of money we were spending was being questioned. I’m just trying to be cautious and play both sides.”
