- FUN FEATURES
Have you gotten you Cheshire Herald yet? If not, here's what you're missing:
*Town Manager Michael Milone unveiled his budget last week: a $99.7 million proposal. If adopted as-is, it would mean most families in Cheshire would pay approximately $184 more in taxes. Read what Milone and others had to say about the recommendation.
*The boys' locker rooms at Cheshire High School have been a cause for concern for several years, yet nothing has been done to rectify the situation. Officials this week tried to move the project forward, but members of the Town Council decided to table discussion about the locker rooms until this summer. Find out the reasoning behind the action, and how it sparked a heated debate between two Councilors.
*One neighborhood in Cheshire has been dealing with sinkhole problems for the past several years, so much so that a couple of local families have filed a lawsuit against the town. Well, a new sinkhole has opened up on another property. Find out what one local attorney thinks about the situation.
*Make sure you check out our editorial this week, which points out that everyone should share the blame for the delay in addressing the CHS locker rooms, and our weekly Editor's Notebook feature, which addresses the growing trend of "career politicians" who bring little real-world experience to the table.
*As always, our Around Town, Sports, and Schools sections are chalk full of your local news and happenings.
