From Senator Cathy Osten:
"I'm happy to announce that the State Bond Commission has approved a combined $2.7 million in state grants for three public projects in the region. I'm always advocating up in Hartford for eastern Connecticut to get its fair share of state bonding, and I believe these are three very worthwhile projects that deserve state support.
This grant includes funding of $500,000 for a new roof and fire equipment for the Gales Ferry Volunteer Fire Department in Ledyard, which was founded in 1942. The department moved into its station on Route 12 in 1986 and has since refinished the firehouse exterior and replaced the front apron with a concrete pad."
