Zoning lawsuit filed against town

ORANGE - Lambert Road residents Todd and Jennifer Green have filed a lawsuit against the town. They claim that the town has not enforced a court order that Aqua Turf Irrigation must cease storing commercial vehicles at 73 Rolling Ridge Road. The property abuts the Green's home.

In the suit, they claim the town has failed to enforce the zoning regulations against David and Marc D'Andrea, owners of Aqua Turf Irrigation Inc.

The D'Andrea's claim they no longer store vehicles at the Rolling Ridge Road location.

Tower at dump passes

ORANGE - The Town Planning and Zoning Commission unanimously approved a proposal by AT&T Wireless Communications to build a 180-foot-high cell phone tower at the transfer station located on Orange Center Road.

The tower will be constructed on the patch of land that currently holds wood chips for residents. When residents drive up to dispose of their trash the tower will be to their left.

While zoners passed the application, Chairman Michael Paolini admitted the location is not perfect.

"It's not a perfect fit by any means…At least it meets one of the key requirements that we set," Paolini said.

Misinformation to be corrected

ORANGE - The Board of Finance, at its last meeting approved a policy to publicly correct anything it deems "misinformation of a financial nature" to residents. This decision came in the wake of the first selectman being accused of misleading residents about the board's role in raising taxes.
