Residents sound off on $62.2 million budget proposal By Devin Leith-Yessian The Citizen

Sofia Corvello, 11, gets help potting a plant from Pat Eleveld at The Lil’ Plant Shop in Plainville. The store recently relocated to East Main Street. Devin Leith-Yessian, The Citizen

Lil’ Plant Shop finds larger home Leaning on a long wooden table with dirt sprouting from the grains of the wood, Jeff Eleveld said the desire to have a plant bench was one of the reasons he opened the The Lil’ Plant Shop about two years ago. "I've always wanted a plant bench, so I could just come and plant some plants without having to worry about

cleaning up," Eleveld said. "It's my passion. It's just something I've done since I was about 10 years old and I've never lost interest in it.” The store recently moved to a new home in a storefront on East Main Street. The bench gives customers a place to create their own combinations of a plant, container and decorations. "You take your vessel and you look at all the different

plants we have and you start building onto your design," Eleveld said. The store recently moved from 52 W. Main St. to the larger location. The new storefront at 8 E. Main St. was the former home of El Camino Christian Bookstore. Jeff Eleveld runs the shop with his wife Pat Eleveld and daughter, Carli Eleveld. See Plant, A11

1800's through the present. The free program is set for Saturday, March 23, 1 p.m., at the Plainville Historic Center, 29 Pierce St. The program also highlights the impact of the 19th

The hunt, which kicks off at the VFW, 8 Northwest Drive, is scheduled for 5 to 7 p.m.; awards and party 7 to 10 p.m. A $50 fee is charged.

5-week adult golf clinic

Letters to the Editor We have a problem To the editor: They want our money; the money we need to support our families. The Board of Education received a 5.13 percent increase last year and wants another 3 percent (more than $1.2 million) from the taxpayers this year. The dirty little secret that they don't want us to know? State law says this year's BOE's budget becomes the base budget for next year and cannot be reduced in the future no matter what. Forgive my cynicism concerning this law but it seems that the collusion going on between the Democrat lawmakers, teachers unions and the boards of education looks a bit like a public education racket, as the teachers unions almost exclusively donate to Democrat politicians. If the Plainville BOE can count on this yearly increase

they'll have little motivation to live within a reasonable budget. And they can always find that extra administrator, staffer or "improvement" to spend it on.

The low turnout is more of a product of the town's almost non-existent promotion of the vote. The lower the turnout the easier it is to control the results. The more motivated voters who have a self-interest in passing the budgets will show up. People have lives and jobs and problems and children and need multiple reminders to come to the fire house to vote for or against the budgets.

We have a problem in Plainville. I hope it isn't apathy. Only a few hundred voters come out to pass or reject the town's operating, and the BOE's, budget. The town manager says the extremely low turnout indicates that the voters by and large approve of the budgets. This makes no sense. If you approve of the budget then why wouldn't you show up to vote?

The Plainville Recreation Department has scheduled a golf clinic for adults, to begin Monday, March 18, 7 to 8:15 p.m., for five weeks. The first three classes are scheduled at Wheeler Elementary School, the final two at a local course. The program discusses basic fundamentals, course management, the full golf swing, exercises for golf, and more. For more information and to register, visit or call 860-747-6022.

Please mark the date on your calendars and vote on Tuesday, April 30. David Spencer Plainville

READ ACROSS AMERICA Louis Toffolon Elementary School celebrated Read Across America on March 1. Students participated in different Makerspace-based activities such as building free-standing truffula trees, Thing 1 and Thing 2 traps, and redesigning a hat for the Cat in the Hat. Students in fourth and fifth grade reflected on positive reading memories and shared them using Padlet, "an online bulletin board." Students also enjoyed guest readers who visited their classrooms throughout the day. Pictured, using Maker Space materials, Amber Garrett completed a Read Across America challenge to build a forest of free-standing truffula trees in the library.

Town Council Chairperson Katherine Pugliese said the council will be scrutinizing spending during budget workshops.

Even if increases are relatively small, Spencer said they can add up over time, particularly if they become the baseline for future spending levels. “[W]e're tapped out as taxpayers,” he said. “I'm sick of watching my

“The people that spoke tonight are right about a lot of those things about the impact on voters,” Pugliese said, singling out concerns over the looming impact of the state budget. “We are being asked to correct the mistakes made in Hartford, and I don’t think it’s fair.” The council held a budget workshop on Monday, and others are scheduled this month.
