Ellington Delegation Announces Bond Funding Supporting Town

Today, State Senator Saud Anwar (D-South Windsor) and State Representative Jaime Foster (D-Ellington) announced the State Bond Commission included $443,856 in state bond funding in its agenda for its July 29 meeting supporting projects in Ellington. Specifically, the funds will aid park improvements as well as a municipal charging station.

“I’m grateful to Governor Lamont and the State Bond Commission for dedicating funds to Ellington,” said Sen. Anwar. “Improving our parks will aid local recreation and provide a stronger quality of life in our community, while a municipal charging station in town is an important resource to aid clean vehicle technology and clean air for our region.”

“We’ve worked hard to support community groups and municipal leaders to make improvements to our towns,” said Rep. Foster. “These park improvements can be transformative and allow the town to capitalize on existing funds, equipment and plans.”

The Bond Commission agenda for the July 29 meeting lists $443,856 in state funding to be released to Ellington. Those funds are listed to be used to support park improvements as well as the installation of a municipal charging station for electric vehicles.
