New Britain Council To Consider Patton Brook Well Sale


10:48 AM EDT, August 13, 2014
NEW BRITAIN - The proposed sale of the Patton Brook Well is on the agenda for the common council at its Aug. 13 meeting.
Mayor Erin Stewart's administration wants to sell the well for $1.3 million to the town of Southington, which has leased it since 1977.
New Britain hasn't used it since then, the city's long-term water resource plan doesn't include using it, and the well and pumphouse need extensive and costly repairs, according to officials in her administration. Some residents and council members argue that the city shouldn't permanently sign away a water resource, and others suggest that Southington might make a higher offer if the proposal is rejected.
The council meeting begins at 7 p.m. at city hall.
