Town Councilman Pushes To Resolve Beetle Infestation at Former Outback Teen Center Building

A member of the Town Council on Wednesday night called for the legislative body to push officials to address a documented “powder post beetle” infestation at the former Outback Teen Center Building. Told that the town likely won’t address the problem until a more comprehensive report on the building’s capital needs and possible future use is in hand, Councilman Cristina A. Ross said that it’s been “slightly over one year” since the infestation was identified and “I am really surprised and concerned that this just keeps going and now we are waiting for another report and no action has been taken.”

“So I think it’s within our [Town Council Infrastructure & Utilities] subcommittee to be able to recommend to the Board of Selectmen to act on [an RFP for remediation] and to take care of the infestation at this point,” she said at the group’s regular meeting, held at Town Hall. No one knows what’s going to happen with the cavernous structure behind town hall.

Letter: Penny Young for Town Council

Penny possesses three exemplary traits that have put her at the top of those serving on the Town Council. First, she has without exception earned the respect of her past and present Town Council colleagues, other elected/appointed members of the towns governing bodies and the town hall staff. Secondly, her highly principled decisions are based solely on what is in the best interest of New Canaan. Finally, Penny has, through her many years of service to our town, been at the forefront for the important issues that have come before the Town Council.
