Regional School Funding

The Commission on Fire Prevention and Control received confirmation today from the Office of Governor M. Jodi Rell that the Governor will include funds totaling $367,912 on the March 31, 2006 Bond Commission Agenda. This funding will permit design/engineering work to commence in support of the New Haven Regional Fire School facility improvement plan. This is the fist step in a multi-year plan to modernize the regional fire school infrastructure throughout Connecticut

State Fire Administrator Jeffrey J. Morrissette also reported that Governor Rell has recommended an additional bond authorization of $10 million as part of her FY 2006-07 Midterm Budget to support the multi-year Regional Fire School plan. This is in addition to a prior $10 million bond authorization.
