Tree cutting subject of meeting


NAUGATUCK — The borough will host a public information meeting Thursday on tree trimming and cutting being done by Connecticut Light & Power.

The meeting is 6 p.m. at Town Hall, 229 Church St.

CL&P is currently cutting and trimming trees along 32 miles of roads in Naugatuck as part of its maintenance plan. CL&P subcontracted the work to Asplundh Tree Expert Co. The work is being done west of Route 8, in the northwest section of Naugatuck to the Middlebury and Oxford town lines. The trimming and cutting has come under criticism from residents for going too far.

Residents interested in getting information regarding the program are welcome to attend the informational meeting.
