Waterbury legislators are pleased to announce the approval by the State Bond Commission of various items in the City of Waterbury totaling over $6.5 million dollars.

“It is important that I along with the delegation continue the work of securing much needed State funding to assist my district and the entire City. The needs are great for our economic and physical infrastructure and I continue in my pursuit of these funds. It is the right thing to do and it is what my constituents have asked of me,” Rep. Berger said.

“Libraries serve as a center for information and cultural activities not replicated in other settings,” Rep. Cuevas said. “The Silas Bronson Library is a venerable center in our community that merits our full support so that it remains an indispensable resource. I thank Governor Malloy for this and all funding support for the city.”

– $500,000 Renovations and improvements to the Silas Bronson Library.

– $4,400,000 to provide a loan to Watertown Crossing Village in Waterbury

– $1,650,000 to finance settlement of a construction claim for a new technology building at Naugatuck Valley Community College in Waterbury.
