Public hearing next step for Litchfield budget plan (03-28-18) 
Litchfield voters will have a chance to comment on a proposed town budget of $31.2 million for 2018-19 at an upcoming public hearing.
The Board of Finance on Monday moved the spending plan to the public hearing set for April 25. Monday’s meeting saw the board adopt proposed education and capital budgets in the wake of a proposed Board of Selectmen budget being adopted on March 12.
The proposed budget of $31,277,204 is $123,754, or 0.4 percent, higher than the current budget of $31,153,450 and reflects a successful effort by town and school officials to keep costs under control.
The proposed Board of Education budget of $18,993,526 shows an increase of just $60,000, or 0.3 percent, over the current budget of $18,933,526. The increase is due to the board’s decision to maintain the Spanish program at the intermediate school.
The Board of Selectmen’s proposed budget of $8,152,258 shows no increase in spending over the board’s current budget. Proposed capital improvements spending of $2.9 million and debt payment totals $4,131,420.
Aquarion Improving Water Mains in Litchfield
Water main cleaning scheduled to take place in Litchfield April 16 to April 27.
Aquarion Water Company announced a water main cleaning project in Litchfield from Monday, April 16 through Friday, April 27 between 8:00 am to 4:00 p.m.  The water main cleaning project is being undertaken to ensure that customers continue to receive the highest quality water.
The Litchfield water main cleaning project is estimated to last approximately two weeks. During that time, customers may notice some discoloration in their water. This discoloration results from the temporary disturbance of the water flow, which stirs up naturally occurring minerals that settle in water mains.  Aquarion recommends customers store water in their refrigerators for drinking and cooking.  Customers should also refrain from washing laundry if water is discolored.  Before resuming use, customers should run their cold water faucets until the water appears clear.
The cleaning schedule is 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.; the streets that will be affected by the water main cleaning project in Litchfield are:
Monday, April 16
Gallows Ln., Meadow St.,
