A Message From First Selectman Bindelglass

Updated 9/23/2022

Good afternoon – 

This week we were fortunate to receive a Small Town Economic Assistance Program Grant from the state of approximately $240,000 which was designated for resurfacing of our tennis courts and lining them simultaneously for pickle ball. This was a long-term project which the board of finance had approved and for which approximately $60,000 had already been put away. These funds come from the fees which the Parks and Recreation Department had saved from fees it collected for field use and programs which the department runs. It appears that this is a reimbursable grant which will, by policy require a board of finance approval of the entire amount and subsequent town meeting. I would like to thank Justin Giorlando, our land use consultant who handled our application and Danielle Alves the director of Parks and Rec. From a Park and Rec perspective this is one of our first projects, pickle ball, aimed specifically to benefit our seniors. We continue to look at opportunities for funding to allow us to do projects to improve our town while not having to rely on your tax dollars.

The dare race will be held Saturday, October 1st, 9:30 a.m. at SSES. For more information, please go to https://runsignup.com/Race/Info/CT/Easton/TheEastonPoliceChase5K.
