On behalf of the Board of Directors of CFSIC, we thank Governor Lamont and all the members of the CT Bond Commission for their pledge of the next $20M in funding to help us continue our important work at CFSIC.
This is the last tranche of the original $100M CFSIC was pledged under the legislation signed by Governor Malloy on October 31, 2017.
Great progress has been made. As I write this, 340 families are back in their homes. By this time next year, that number will be 500, including several dozen condos and PUDs. We thank the Superintendent and the entire team for the fair and equitable way they have managed CFSIC. Being Superintendent of CFSIC is a seven-day-a-week job, make no mistake about it.
The great push is on to get as much remediation done professionally and safely as can happen between now and the middle of December. With our next $100 million, the first piece of which we’ll get in July 2022, we will have four more years of strong momentum. CFSIC is facing the crumbling foundations natural disaster with conviction and courage.
