New Canaan this week entered into a $9,704 contract with a Danbury-based company for emergency repairs to the Waveny Pool sewage ejection system.
Though the approval was just moved through the Board of Selectmen at a meeting on Tuesday, First Selectman Rob Mallozzi already had approved the project in order to get the system running in time for the popular pool’s opening on Memorial Day Weekend.
Mallozzi said he oversaw parts of the last-minute job himself.
“I spent two days out there last week to get a look at what they were doing,” he said at the meeting, held in Town Hall. “[Foley’s Pump Service],our billing department and our health department all worked together to have a very successful pool opening”.
Mallozzi also praised the pump service for its ability to work within such a short period of time.
“Foley’s was incredibly responsive to our needs,” he said.
