NAUGATUCK — Jessie Ballenger was ready to take on public office when she found out she had been nominated as African-American mayor of the day. “You just never know when something good happens out of the blue,” Ballenger said. “You never know when people are watching you and been taking you into consideration for honors and recognition.” Mayor Robert Mezzo handed his office over to Ballenger Monday as part of the town’s observance of Black history month.
Siting Council hears pleas
PROSPECT — Supporters and opponents of Wind Prospect finally got their chance to plead their case before the Siting Council. The Connecticut Siting Council came to Prospect last week to get a first-hand look at the site for two proposed wind turbines off of Kluge Road. “This gives us an idea what’s here-wetlands, vistas-all those things that anyone would consider just looking at the land itself,” said Daniel Caruso, chairman of the council, following a walk through of the site Feb. 23. Dozens of people, including neighbors opposed to the project holding signs, greeted the council as they pulled down Kluge Road and made the trek with them through snow and mud for a look at where the proposed turbines will stand.
