BRIDGEPORT CITY COUNCIL SEEKS INPUT ON PROPERTY

The City of Bridgeport is seeking public opinion on the future use of a dilapidated property in the downtown area. During its session Tuesday night at City Hall Mayor Michael Craske indicated that a lein has been filed in court against the owner of the property at 314 North Main Street. On Monday October 14th there will be a public meeting by the council’s Parks Committee as to what to do with that area in the future. One idea is to convert it into a greenspace. The meeting will be at 5:30p.m. and residents are invited to express their sentiments. It was reported to the council that a schedule for city leaf pickup remains pending and firm dates will be announced in the future. Mayor Craske also reported that on Wednesday October 23rd there will be a pre-construction meeting regarding the planned city lagoon project as they look to get that underway.
