The PBC is the Town’s sole building committee, and oversees and administers all building projects in excess of $250,000 authorized by town meeting and all maintenance, repair and alteration projects in excess of $25,000. The PBC is responsible for preparing Requests for Proposals for architects and engineers, project managers and construction firms, interviewing the applicants and selecting qualified firms. The Committee will also oversee the design and construction of the new schools through an Owner’s Project Manager. Currently, the Committee is overseeing the school construction projects approved at Town meeting last October. There are two vacancies on the PBC, and it is critical for the Committee to be fully staffed as members begin reviewing design documents for the new High School and Consolidated Early Learning Academy. If you are interested in becoming a member of the PBC, please submit a Letter of Intent and Resume to pdelmonaco@newfairfield.org no later than Friday, January 31.

Drop Off Center Update! Drop Off Center Permits are now available at Town Hall in the Land Use Department (payable by check only) and at the Drop Off Center (payable by check or credit card).

Unfortunately, the vendor that the Town used for online payment is no longer in business, and online payment is currently unavailable. We hope to have this issue resolved in the very near future.  This year, passes will be issued for a 6 month period from January 1, 2020 – June 30, 2020 to align the DOC with the municipal fiscal year. On July 1, 2020, annual passes will be available for the year ending June 30, 2021.  After feedback from residents and Drop Off Center staff, we have decided to issue DOC stickers once again rather than continue to use the paper permits we have used for the past year. The cost of the six month permits is as follows: Passenger/Combination Plates $8.00 Seniors over 65 $4.00 Commercial Vehicles $25.00 Sherman Residents $16.00  For more information, click here:

Sand/Salt mixture is available to residents at the Drop Off Center. Residents may fill two 5 gallon buckets with sand per storm. The Drop Off Center is open on Saturdays and Tuesdays from 8:00 AM until 3:45 PM and on Thursday evenings from 4:00 - 7:00 PM. Please bring your own buckets and shovel!

Mailboxes and posts that receive direct contact from snow removal equipment will be replaced with a standard mailbox and post. If your mailbox was damaged directly by a Town plow, please call the Public Works Department at 203-312-5628. The Public Works Superintendent will inspect the damage and replace the mailbox accordingly.

In accordance with the Town's Wintertime Parking Ordinance, we ask that you remove parked cars from Town roads during a storm so that the plows can clear your road safely and completely. Thank you!
