Roaming through Italy made a reality


Friday, November 19, 2010

Meeting veterans up close and personal at Montowese School By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen Last week, Montowese Elementary School students learned about service and sacrifices recognized by Veterans Day from a primary source — former American soldiers. Dressed in uniforms identifiable from past United States’ conflicts, two dozen local veterans visited classrooms Nov. 10 to discuss wartime experiences. Jim Fontana, who piloted a World War II B-26 Marauder bomber in the European Theater, told fifth graders

about his entire journey, beginning with flight school in an open-cockpit aircraft. “I was 18 years old,” he said. “I had never gotten higher than a second story building. Then on my first flight, I got 18,000 feet up, and they turned the airplane upside down. There was nothing between me and the ground but air.” “After a couple of hours, they came down and if you were okay, you went on with your training,” he added with a laugh. Active duty included 15

The North Haven High School Boys Soccer team would like to thank all those who contributed their time, support and generous donations in helping to make their 2010 trip to Italy a reality. The boys participated in an International Soccer Tournament in San Marino, Italy, and enjoyed a wonderful and educational experience as they traveled to Milan, Venice, Rome and Lake Como. It was a trip of a lifetime.

A ‘new day’ for economic development and building department procedures By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

At North Haven’s Nov. 10 Board of Selectman meeting, topics included economic development and building department issues. Economic development During his monthly town overview, First Selectman Michael Freda announced that Yale-New Haven Hospital would put a new branch into North Haven. Yale-New Haven Hospital will populate 120,000 square-feet in the Crossroads building at 6 Devine Street. Additional space at the rear of the property could provide room for future expansion. By the end of calendar year 2011, Freda said, North Haven will have

a radiology center and full emergency room, pediatric and geriatric facilities. “This will bring 200 white collar jobs to North Haven,” Freda said. “The bigger picture here is the fact that it provides residents with an outstanding service.” In line with his long-stated economic development goals, Freda mentioned that Yale representatives had been taken along Washington Avenue. “Earlier in the year we showed Yale sites all over town,” he said. “Ultimately, it was Yale’s decision where to go. In addition to the Yale plans, the former Quebecor property at 297 State St. will be bought.

Police Union tackles hunger this Thanksgiving By Paul Colella Special to the North Haven Citizen

Thanksgiving is a time to gather with family and friends and give thanks for the blessings bestowed upon us. Unfortunately, there are those who are struggling during these difficult times and require a helping hand. In an effort to help those in need, the North Haven Police Union Local 3087 began their third annual food drive on Nov. 1. It will run through Monday, Nov. 22. The union is working with North Haven’s Department of Community Services to provide families in town with a turkey dinner — complete with all the trimmings.

“We want to reach out to the public and help those in need. Statistically, one out of seven families go hungry in this country, and this year there is an even bigger demand because of the poor and difficult economy,” stated Dan Riccio, Jr., welfare administrator at Community Services. “I am very pleased to be working with Union President and Officer Michael Compare and his fellow police officers in getting donations of frozen turkeys and non-perishable food items. Our goal this year is to get 60 turkeys or more donated.” Riccio explained that the food bank is in need of at least 20 more turkeys. All food items collected will be

given to the Town of North Haven Food Bank, run by the Department of Community Services, and will be given to local families in need, added Riccio. Anything extra will be given to the interfaith food bank housed at the North Haven Congregational Church located on Church Street. Due to the lack of freezer space, the Police Union asks that anyone donating a turkey drop off the bird to the Police Department between 7 a.m. and 1p.m. on Nov. 22. All non-perishable food items can be brought to the police station’s lobby. Needed non-perishable items include canned vegetables, fruit, and juices, cranberry sauce, canned gravy,

cans of assorted soups, coffee and tea, jars of peanut butter, jelly, and mayonnaise, canned tuna, boxes of stuffing and instant potatoes, macaroni and cheese, rice, boxes of cake mixes and frosting, jars of pasta sauce, boxes of cereal (hot and cold), boxes of pasta, and canned or powdered milk. A complete list of food items can be obtained at the office of Community Services. “I want to thank the Police Union, the American Legion, Mr. Fassio, Charlie Flanagan, the baseball coach for the American Legion, and the community for all their support and kindness in bringing a Thanksgiving meal to those in need,” said Riccio. “We are happy to help serve the public, and let us be thankful for all our blessings small or large, and for our health, family, and friends, and remember to be good to one another.” Food distribution will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 23 and Wednesday Nov. 24 from 1 to 4p.m. at the Town Hall Annex Building, 5 Linsley Street. Requests can be made by contacting the Department of Community Services at 203239-5321 ext 780. All recipients must show proof of residence. “I believe that we (the union) got involved in the food drive because that is what police officers do. We serve and protect and there is not a greater way to serve and protect than to help out

those less fortunate,” stated Officer Compare. “Too often we are not able to really help people out in the way we would all like to, and I speak for the entire membership when I say we all took this job to help people, to make a difference in people’s lives, and if that means putting a turkey on someone’s table for Thanksgiving, then I can’t think of any better way.” Compare is hopeful for a successful food drive, and he and his fellow officers are grateful for the support and generosity of all those who can contribute. In difficult times and time of crisis, more is accomplished when people come together, work collaboratively and help one another. “In difficult economic times, there is a greater number of people in need and we in North Haven do our best to reach out to those in need, embrace them, give them hope, let them know that we are here for them, and we support them,” stated First Selectman Michael Freda. “I commend the North Haven Police Union for their efforts and desire in wanting to give back.” “I became involved in the annual food drive because that’s how I was raised. My father is a police officer in Milford and in the 35 plus years that he has been an officer, he has always been doing a little more to give back, and that’s what I’m trying to do,” Compare added. “We all (the membership) have been blessed to have the greatest job in the world, and we just want to give a little back!” Thanksgiving is not only a time to be thankful but also an opportunity to give something regardless of the amount or size to someone less fortunate. It is in giving that we receive. What better way to give than with a gift or donation from the heart that will feed a needy family or neighbor and let them know someone cares.

bombing missions for Fontana. “Our biggest problem was the German anti-aircraft guns,” he said. Fontana showed kids a small and shiny piece of Nazi flack, shrapnel which burst through his plane’s windshield, ricocheted around the cockpit and sliced his hand. Once the metal finally came to a rest and cooled off, he said, he picked it up and kept it through the years. After Fontana, Walter Hushak recalled his combat time. Hushak flew a B-24 Liberator bomber in America’s World War II Pacific operations. “That first time you faced enemy fighters,” he said, “you never forget it. You can see them coming in on you, guns all firing.” Drawing a chalkboard diagram, Hushak described strategies behind plane formations. “We flew in formations for protection, for safety purposes, so when the enemy fighters attacked, we would have a concentration, and we would have all these guns firing.” “The planes are not all at the same height. From the ground, you may think they’re all at the same

Letters to the Editor

Deny permits

The editorial in the New Haven Register, “Don’t Dump on New Haven,” raises some serious questions. One in particular that concerns me is the statement that dumping untreated dredging material in Long Island Sound has been effectively restricted (if not stopped), since a 2005 agreement between Connecticut and New York. What a coincidence — shortly after that the DEP put the sludge from the dredging operation in New York Harbor on barges, (for a most lucrative fee, I imagine) and had it dumped here in our tire pond. Was that because it was too polluted to put in the sound? The Connecticut DEP in my opinion is the most disreputable and environmentally destructive agency in the state. There is absolutely

no reason to grant them permits to dump the Winchester Toxic Waste in our town. Why they are even applying for permits is a travesty. Haven’t they been operating an illegal landfill at the Tire Pond for years already? The Tire Pond has already been capped. The DEP and the Olin Corp. are just looking for a convenient and cheap place to dump their poisons. I hope the people in North Haven wake up and realize our lives and the quality of life of our future generations depend on stopping this action by the DEP and Olin. We are not just talking about cancer deaths. Deformities and mutations of fetuses can also be caused by exposure to these chemicals. Write letters to the Planning & Zoning Commission to deny the permits, and attend the P & Z Public Hearing on December 6th, 7:00, at the

Park & Recreation Center at Barbara Feinberg. Third, I’d like to thank 5 Linsley Street.

Abuse To the editor: I like to attend the monthly selectmen’s meeting here in North Haven. However it has been getting abused by several people who repeatedly ask numerous questions which are only politically motivated. I would suggest that one question, not exceeding three minutes, be allowed each person. Any oth-

er questions searching for details and explanations and other minutia should be submitted in writing. Most of this nonsense would be covered under “FOI.” The party requesting this information should be willing to pay the reasonable cost of supplying it. I’m sure most of this nonsense would then cease to be so important. I know many people do not attend the meetings because of all the delays. The rest of us could have an enjoyable and educational evening, and be able to get home at a reasonable time. William J. Parisi North Haven

Grateful To the editor: Dave Yaccarino: I would like to sincerely thank all of the North Haven residents who came out and voted for him on Tuesday, Nov. 2. It was a tough battle but with your tireless help and enthusiasm, we were able to send a message of change to Hartford and begin to get North Haven the representation it deserves. I cannot thank all of you enough for your confidence in me and I am truly honored to be North Haven’s representative in Hartford. I will not let you down. I would like to extend a special thanks to all of the volunteers and my campaign committee. Paul Marando, on behalf of Dave Yaccarino North Haven

‘Rime’ and reason By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

First frost can be an eye opener. Rime arrives one fall morning, unexpected though annual, glazed unapologetically across car windows. Soon, scrapers will become instruments necessary to sunrise routines, indispensable though forgotten in trunks just months before. Windshields must be uncovered, occasionally at first, then as daily labor. Winter’s ice is a frozen certainty. If New Years comes with hopeful resolutions then winter arrives first with truths. Temperatures drop. Birds migrate. As if by magic, the elements will summon white storms capable of canceling school. At night darkness arrives earlier. We’re all a bit sluggish and somnolent. We spend increased amounts of time inside. Meanwhile, autumn abides with august dignity. It felt almost mid-fall outside this weekend. But while playing basketball in our cul-desac Saturday I put on a sweatshirt. Around me time’s in-

fluence is present in temporal telltales — old and recent. The torn net hangs from a metal hoop stained by rust. I dribble the ball over brittle leaves long-descended, which in faded clumps crunch wonderfully underfoot. Residents up our street have decorated for Thanksgiving, and upon reminder I become eager for my own family’s observance. Another November election has concluded. Just two years after Obama’s victory, voters tallied a Republican success. Nancy Pelosi will pass her speakership to John Boehner. Democrats might point out that polls, of course, fluctuate with time. Election seasons end swiftly. Signs of candidate support dwindle from front lawns. Bloggers move on. The commercials are always first to go. During televised NFL games we can see players’ breaths more often now. Exhaled from faces enclosed within football helmets, these cloudy puffs are confirmation of weather’s atmos-

Freda’s Focus Economic Development Although the dark clouds of the recession continue to hover over us nationally and at the state level, here in North Haven there are bright rays of sunshine starting to sliver through those dark clouds. I am convinced that within the next 12 months, those dark clouds will disFreda sipate and continue to give way to bright sunshine. We have had many meetings with many prospective tenants and businesses and I would like to share with you what we now have happening. Our news regarding Yale was the culmination of many months of discussions with their executives to bring a full service emergency center and radiology facility for all of our residents, a geriatric facility for our seniors, and a pediatric facility for our young children. I can also tell you that we have spoken to Yale regarding additional future expansion here in town. The current plan once all the applications are filed is to have this wonderful facility fully up and running by the end of 2011. Over 200 professional jobs will be located here in conjunction with this facility located on Divine Street, right off of the Dixwell Avenue exit from the Route 40 connector. Down the road on State Street, almost one year of discussions have culminated

in the purchase of the old Northeast Graphics 372,000 square foot facility by an acquisition company whom we have been working with. The plan is to bring a total of four new tenants into this facility. Three of those tenants will be in by the late spring of 2011, and once fully up and running, there will be an additional 240 jobs as part of this facility. The jobs generated by these two sites will add spending power here in town and should also help our other local businesses. Additionally, the developer whom we have been working with is interested in other acquisitions in North Haven and we will be driving around town with them next week to look at other sites. Over on Universal Drive, Doug Gray, from Eclipse Development who designed the Best Buy Plaza, and I will be meeting in December to work to fill out the space that is remaining in that plaza. Mr. Rabina and I, along with another developer Lane Brunner, continue to examine our options for the 168 vacant acres on the old Pratt and Whitney site. Although nothing is yet happening there, we continue to try to develop a solution. All across town I see opportunities and we will continue to stay focused to try to fill those opportunities. In the meantime, we will continue to keep you posted regarding any new developments through these columns, on NHTV, and at our Board of Selectmen meetings. Sincerely, Michael J. Freda First Selectman

Tips for a safe Thanksgiving dinner Thanksgiving is a joyful time for families to gather around the table to give thanks and celebrate. It’s also a time to review simple precautions in order to keep food preparation and storage safe from food poisoning. In its latest year of surveillance, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention documented 1,097 reported outbreaks resulting in 21,244 cases of food-borne illness and 18 deaths. “Food poisoning is highly preventable,” said Dr. Richard Geller, executive medical director of California Poison Control System ( “By following simple storage, handling and cooking suggestions, families can stay healthy and enjoy Thanksgiving dinner, as well as the many other celebrations taking place this time of year.” Food poisoning can cause fever, stomach pain, vomiting and/or diarrhea and dehydration. The illness usually appears within six to 48

hours after eating or drinking contaminated food or beverage. For the elderly, children, infants, pregnant woman and people suffering from compromised immune systems, food poisoning can be severe. California Poison Control System (CPCS) offers the top 10 tips for enjoying a safe Thanksgiving. 1. Wash your hands often, especially in between handling foods that are dry and wet. 2. Before preparing food, carefully clean counters, cutting boards and utensils with hot soapy water. Repeat cleaning in between recipes, especially if you have raw meat or leafy greens on the cutting board, both of which can carry salmonella. 3. Rinse fruits and vegetables thoroughly under cool running water and use a produce brush to remove surface dirt. 4. If you purchased a turkey fresh and not frozen, refrigerate it immediately. For a frozen turkey, allow lots

of time for it to thaw — 24 hours of thaw time per five pounds of turkey. Thaw a turkey a high walled pan placed in the refrigerator, and do not let the water touch any other food. 5. It is safest not to stuff a turkey, but rather put herbs inside the cavity to season it. If you must stuff, use a food thermometer to check the internal temperature of the stuffing which must reach 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Stuffings with meat or shellfish (oyster) ingredients are risky. Always cook these on the stove top or in the oven, and not in the turkey. After carving, remove all stuffing from the bird before refrigerating it. 6. A significant risk of food poisoning comes from undercooking the turkey. You cannot tell it’s done by how it looks. While recipes give you hints about testing for “doneness,” such as a golden brown color or seeing juices run clear, these may not be accurate. The only way to

make sure your bird is cooked sufficiently, safe enough to eat, is to measure the internal temperature with a meat thermometer. It must reach 165 degrees Fahrenheit. 7. It may not be in mom’s recipe, but bring gravy to a full boil before serving. 8. Keep cold food like salads, Jello molds and salad dressing refrigerated until just before serving. Once dinner is over, refrigerate leftovers. If food has been sitting out for two hours or more, it may not be safe to eat. 9. Use pasteurized eggs in homemade recipes. 10. After eating, take the remaining meat off the bird and store in a shallow container in the refrigerator. Don’t put an entire carcass into the refrigerator — it won’t cool down quickly enough.

Our high nurse-to-patient ratio, full-time physician coverage, state-of-the-art treatment and warm atmosphere all contribute to recovery times that are better than the national standard.

Fontana said. “We didn’t like the combat part.” Vietnam War veteran and retired Montowese teacher Steve Wronski helped start the annual event over 20 years ago. “This brings living history to the schools,” he said. “Living history tells the kids about what happened from the people it happened to.” Before they are dispersed among classes, veterans enjoy lunch in Montowese’s library, presented by school staff and furnished by nearby restaurants. “You are role models for the kids,” Wronski said to the honored guests. First year Montowese principal Mary Federico praised the school’s Veterans Day customs. “There is so much we can get from textbooks, but this is real life,” she said. “The students and staff here are very involved in being aware and cognizant of Veterans Day. The children have drawn pictures about veterans. They’ve been talking about veterans for the past week or two.” “We are honored to have the veterans here today,” she added. “We owe them for our country. We are all very proud of them.” North Haven politicians attended and had an opportunity to speak at lunch. “I always enjoy interacting with veterans,” said First Selectman Michael Freda. “My

father was a World War II naval veteran. I want to thank the veterans for allowing us to live in the liberties we live in today. Thank you for making North Haven what it is today.” “I really enjoy coming to this event,” said departing State Rep. Steve Fontana. “My dad spent his career working for the VA hospital in West Hartford. Unfortunately, we lost a lot of you [veterans] this past year. That makes what you do that much more important every year.” North Haven’s newly elected State Rep. David Yaccarino said, “I am honored to be here. I served in the U.S. Naval Reserve. My father fought in World War II. You have given so much to our country and world — our liberties and our freedoms. I can’t thank you enough.” Charles Morrissey, former North Haven and state American Legion commander and onetime Montowese teacher, also addressed the luncheon. “I think this is one of the most important programs we have with youths in town,” he said. “They are actually meeting people who are part of the past, who are sharing with them about what it was like.” “This introduces students to a body of knowledge and experience they’ve never had before,” he added. “This is not on any standardized test.”

Patriots and Scoundrels Book 2, Part 11 By Paul Colella Special to the North Haven Citizen

After observing no sign of the colonel in the hallway, I returned to my room and could not believe who I had just seen. To my knowledge, Colonel Parker had left Kensington

Hall shortly before Charlotte’s death and was not heard from since then. And now he appears to me out of nowhere while I am residing at Singleton Lodge. How could this be? How did he find me and why did he run away? I stood in the middle of my room, pondering the possibility that perhaps I could

have been dreaming, since the colonel was on my mind before I had fallen asleep. I took hold of my doll and went to look out the window. As I stared into the distance, darkness had fallen upon the grounds. Then, to my surprise, I caught a glimpse of the ghostly couple moving about among the trees. I had not seen these apparitions in quite some time. As I watched the spirits of the young couple float about, I recalled that in the past every time I would see these spirits something terrible would occur. Are these ghosts trying to send me a warning? I closed my eyes tightly and prayed to maintain my sanity. When I opened my eyes and looked out the window, the apparitions were

gone. A sigh of relief take control of my body. As I sat down on the sofa, I was looking at my doll, and memories of my mother and Patience began to flood my mind. I missed them so deeply. I thought that, perhaps, after I receive my inheritance, I should embark on a journey back to England to see Patience and leave behind the misery and sadness I have encountered here in America. I sat quietly on the comfortable sofa in the dark and waited for a servant to call me for supper. It wasn’t long before Constance came to my room. She graciously escorted me to the dining quarters, where we found her husband patiently waiting for us. He was wellmannered and sophisticated in his appearance. He wore

an outfit consisting of closefitting silk breeches fastened with silver buckles at the knees. His shirt was white linen with lace ruffles at the neck and wrists. Over his shirt, he wore a long, brightly-colored coat with wide, flowing sides decorated with gold braid and several rows of fanciful buttons. Silk stockings and shoes with silver buckles completed his outfit. When Constance made the introductions, her husband gave me a polite greeting and kissed my hand. “Charity Chastine, it is a pleasure to make your acquaintance. My Constance has told me many wonderful things about you. Please accept our humble and warmest welcome to Singleton Lodge. Our home is now your home,” replied Alexander. His warm and sincere greeting made me feel very much at ease. I thanked him for his generosity and his invitation to reside at his home. Then the three of us sat down to a delicious meal and engaged in polite and cheerful conversation. Both Constance and Alexander were delightful hosts. After finishing our meal, we went into the sitting room for tea. But our peaceful and lovely gathering was suddenly interrupted by the arrival of Mrs. Kensington, who was shouting at the housekeeper, pressing to see me. “I have come for Miss Charity Chastine. I demand that you get her at once. I will not be kept waiting a minute longer,” she said. The housekeeper tried to calm Mrs. Kensington and told her to be patient while she announced her arrival. When the servant entered the room, Alexander told me not to worry and he would attend to Mrs. Kensington, who boldly made her way into the sitting room. She gave Constance and Alexander a disdainful glare, and then turned her attention to me. Mrs. Kensington was very upset, when a servant from Singleton Lodge went to her

Hospice care helps patients and families focus on living. This is the message that Masonicare Partners Home health & Hospice is sharing with the community during National Hospice/Palliative Care Month. However, this important message lasts beyond the month of November and is important all year round. “November is a valuable time to raise awareness throughout our community about care at the end of life,” said Donna Dow-Conklin. “But the time a family might need us doesn’t follow a calendar or occur only during this season, so our message must make an impression that stays with people all year long.” “There’s an inaccurate perception among the American public that hospice means you’ve given up,” said J. Donald Schumacher, president and CEO of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization. “Those of us who have worked in the field have seen firsthand how hospice and palliative care can improve the quality of life. And there’s a growing body of research showing that hospice and palliative care may prolong the lives of some people who receive care.”

With its silken texture and buttery flavor, avocado makes a delicious addition to these open-faced bacon and tomato sandwiches. When selecting avocados, avoid those that feel mushy; a ripe avocado will yield to gentle pressure when squeezed. Ingredients: • 4 slices course country bread, each 1/2 inch thick • 1/2 cup aioli • 2 tomatoes, cut into slices 1/4 inch thick • Salt, to taste • 8 thin bacon slices, cooked until crispy • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and thinly sliced Directions: Preheat a broiler. Arrange the bread in a single layer on a baking sheet and put under the broiler until lightly toasted, 2 to 3 minutes. Spread the aioli on the bread and top with a few tomato slices, pressing the tomato into the bread. Season with salt and top the tomato with the bacon slices, then with the avocado and a light sprinkle of salt. Serve immediately. Serves 4.

Rules for Perfect Pairing (Food and Wine) Serve a dry rose with hors d’oeuvres Good rose combines the fresh acidity and light body of white wines with the fruity character of reds. This makes it the go-to wine when serving a wide range of hors d’oeuvres, from crudites to gougeres. Serve an unoaked white with anything you can squeeze a lemon or lime on. White Wines such as Sauvignon Blanc, Albarino and Vermentino (typically made in stainless steel tanks rather than oak barrels) have a bright, citrusy acidity that acts like a zap of lemon or lime juice to heighten flavors in everything from smoked sablefish to grilled salmon.

home, inquiring about my belongings. She told me that my place was at Kensington Hall with her and Charles, and she demanded that I leave with her at once. Constance, who was standing next to me, told Mrs. Kensington that I was her friend and I had decided to reside at Singleton Lodge with her and Alexander. Mrs. Kensington rudely suggested that Constance mind her own affairs and accused her and Alexander of poisoning my mind against her with outra-

geous tales of the fabricated actions against one of her dedicated and trusted servants. Before Mrs. Kensington could finish, Alexander asked me to tell my employer of my decision to stay with them, but Mrs. Kensington’s anger and foreboding appearance made me nervous and I had difficulty speaking. I talked slowly and explained that it was my decision to leave Kensington Hall and take advantage of the Caruthers’ hospitality. I also told my employer that Charles no longer needed me, for he had his tutor

With the assistance of the housekeeper, a calm and complacent Alexander escorted an angry Mrs. Kensington to the main entrance. She warned Alexander that she was not a woman to be trifled with, or made a fool of, as her previous adversaries had learned, and that we had not seen or heard the last from her. After she was gone, her threatening words were echoing in my ears. I sat down and began to apologize to Alexander and Constance for the upheaval and causing them to become enemies with Mrs. Kensington. Con-

Nicholas Biddle, and that I refused to stay under the same roof with Lydia Johnson. “You are an ungrateful young girl. I extended generosity and kindness to you when you had no place to live after the fire destroyed Andrews’ Tavern. Charles became so fond of you especially after Charlotte’s death, and now you turn your back on us. This is highly unacceptable and inexcusable,” ranted Mrs. Kensington. She turned to Alexander and Constance, and with a vile look in her eyes, uttered some idle but awful threats.

stance put her arms around me and reassured me that everything would turn out well and we had nothing to fear from Mrs. Kensington. Constance then had one of the servants take me to my room. I quickly undressed and got ready for bed. After saying my prayers and extinguishing the candle by my bedside, I got into bed and burrowed under the warm quilt. I tossed about for some time but eventually fell asleep, unaware that someone was surreptitiously watching me from inside my room. To be continued . . .

The North Haven Citizen — Friday, November 19, 2010

Procedures Continued from page 1

“We worked with a developer, who is purchasing the building,” Freda said. “He’s got something that we want — tenants in his portfolio.” Freda believed 240 new jobs would be added to North Haven once the onetime-Quebecor site is filled. “It will be redeveloped,” he said of 297 State St. “Four tenants will go in there by the end of next year, two in the spring, provided everything passes in Planning and Zoning.”

Additionally, Washington Avenue’s former Hollywood Video property will become a restaurant and bar. Building department Also as part of his overview, Freda discussed updates regarding North Haven’s building department. Over the last year, questions had been raised over whether building permit and application fees were not being collected, or correctly charged. In response, the State Attorney’s Office opened an investigation, but found no criminal activity. However, North Haven be-

gan its own internal forensic audit, which found that over $60,000 in fees may have been lost over a seven-year period. Freda said the town has already recouped $7,000. “We’re continuing to go backwards,” he added. During the auditing period, Freda placed former building official Dave Maiden on administrative leave. Since then, Maiden’s working relationship with North Haven has ended, and he will receive a town pension as part of the separation. According to Freda, from August through November 2009, North Haven collected

$89,830 in permits and inspection fees. From August through November in 2010, when Town Hall began a forensic audit, the building department took in $120,330 in similar fees. “There’s a direct relationship between us ramping up the system here and an increase in revenue,” Freda said. “We learned something from our extensive discussions with the State Attorney’s office,” he added, “that although there was no criminal activity, there were several procedural deficiencies in the system that had existed for years here – essentially,

no oversight.” To prevent such construction permit and application problems from reccurring, Freda said he would revamp North Haven’s building department. North Haven will develop and implement a standard Excel form to calculate building permit fees due. Certain fields may be locked to ensure only current approved rates are used. Forms will include space to document the preparer, review and approval and recalculation of permit fee by some-

Now in its 16th year, the dazzling nighttime event held at New Haven’s Lighthouse Point Park will delight visitors from Friday, Nov. 19, through Friday, Dec. 31, as they drive though an enchanted land of sparkling holiday light displays. This year, several of the displays have gone green, using new, energy-saving LED bulbs. Each display is sponsored by an area business, corporation or individual, with PSEG Power Connecticut LLC as the Title Sponsor.

The North Haven Citizen — Friday, November 19, 2010

Procedures Continued from page 26 one other than the person who prepared it. All applicants must express whether decks or porches are part of structures. Every building permit will be prenumbered, and will be accounted for on a period basis. All permits will be monitored, with respect to issue and expiration dates. North Haven’s construction value and permit fee schedule will be updated to “clearly identify” fees due for hot tubs, and the rate for storage space versus living space. “The accountability will include the status of the permit, whether it’s open, closed or sent to the assessor,” Freda said. “These things were never done in North Haven before.” Other, more specific building department procedural alterations are intended to add layers of oversight and procedure. “This system, I guess the best way to describe it is robust and vibrant, and it will not be deviated from,” Freda said. “From this point forward, there will not be any nonsense in North Haven whatsoever. It’s not going to be tolerated. And that’s the story of the building department.” Freda was still unsure why potential building department problems were not known until after he took office on Dec. 1, 2009, when he discovered that the previous administration had undertaken a private investigation into the matter. Freda claimed that he was not told of building department issues even during a December 2009 transition meeting. “We were totally in the dark,” he said. Later in December 2009, Freda said, he received a phone call from a previous town attorney, in which he learned there was an unpaid invoice for a private investigator. Freda paid the investigator and got the building department results. Included in the results were two letters about the building department from the investigator, sent to Town Hall in July and August of 2009, according to Freda. The letters, he added, were not divulged to residents, or Public Works. Over his term’s first few days, Freda said, he was “inundated with information” from anonymous calls which stated that there might be a building department problem. “This was a long process,” Freda said, almost a year later. “We had to make sure we were doing things correctly. We had very significant labor issues that we had to deal with. Building officials are protected by state statute. We had to be very careful with how we proceeded here.” “I’m happy to report, that despite the problems of the past,” he added, “we’re moving forward now. We’re very systematically disentangling ourselves from the past. We’re moving forward in a productive fashion.”
