CTPOA had a very good turnout out the Housing Committee public hearing in Meriden on February 28….There where lot’s of landlords in the room and the testimony given to the panel was really insightful…..click to read the Meriden Record Journal coverage of the public hearing.
It should not be too much longer and we’ll know if CTPOA will be working on an Urban Revitalization Program in Waterbury and East Hartford as the CT Dept. of Economic & Community Development make their final selections on their grant applications. We had a follow-up interview with the lead partner on the project, CT Housing Investment Fund on February 25th and we think it went well.
House Bill # 6015 An Act Prohibiting Municipalities From Charging Fees for 9-1-1 Calls is being drafted and is going forward. Our lobbying registration for the 2013 session has been filed and I expect this to be a big fight to get this bill through…but in reality, I think we’ll have a lot of support for our effort to repeal the New Britain 9-1-1-Ordinance as ‘NO HUMAN LIFE SHOULD BE PUT AT RISK BECAUSE OF A CITY’S BUDGET PROBLEMS!”
