A Message from Brookfield First Selectman, Steve Dunn
February was a tough month for weather. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Public Works Department for keeping Brookfield roads in such excellent shape last month. Well done!
Brookfield's Health Department continues to hold very successful vaccination clinics at Brookfield Senior Center. We remain in debt to our dedicated volunteer nurses, doctors, and administrators who make this possible.
COVID-19: Effective March 1, anyone over the age of 55, school employee, and licensed childcare providers are now eligible to receive the Covid19 Vaccine. The CT DPH changed eligibility guidelines to an age group rollout and is no longer using medical history as a criterion for Vaccine eligibility. Scheduling for a vaccine can be done in a number of ways, please go to Brookfieldct.gov and read the Frequently Asked Questions which contains hyperlinks to many of the questions you have and places to register.
Please note, there is not currently sufficient allocation to support all those eligible to receive the vaccine immediately - patience will be required. Expect that the ability to schedule an appointment will be spread out over the month of March and into April at Clinics throughout Connecticut.
Town Budget: The town’s budget process for 2021-2022 is underway. The Board of Selectmen held numerous budget workshop meetings in February deliberating on my recommended budget. The board will finalize it, then forward to the Board of Finance with a March 2 presentation as noted below. The proposed date for the Capital Budget Special Town Meeting is Tuesday, March 30 at 7 p.m. to set the Referendum date.
