    At a town meeting on Wednesday, July 11, voters will decide on the town’s proposal to borrow $2 million to pay Bethel to redesign its planned new Route 6 sewer line, so it would be big enough to handle sewage from Newtown. Newtown officials have favored this sewer proposal because it would encourage industrial development in Hawleyville.

    This week, work started on a project involving the construction of new water lines on Queen Street, (from Glover Avenue to Church Hill Road), and on Church Hill Road (from Queen Street to Main Street). Kevin Moran, general manager of the Newtown Water Company, said the new 12-inchpipe will be connected to the existing 6-inch pipes that will remain in the ground. When there are fires, the new lines will help firefighters, he explained. The project should be completed within a month.
