Town officials last week approve the sale of New Canaan’s surplus composted leaf mulch to a local construction company. Selling 1,600 cubic yards of the mulch to Lanni Construction at $9 per yard will net the town $14,400 in revenue, according to Public Works Director Tiger Mann. Since putting its program of selling extra mulch into place in 2009, New Canaan has received about $128,000, Mann told members of the Board of Selectmen at at their Oct. 8 meeting. “It’s that time of year again to clear out our leaf mulch area,” Mann said during the meeting, held in Town Hall.
Lanni Construction’s price is the same as last year, he said.
