Appointments and re-appointments were also made.

Mike Luba was appointed to the police commission with a term ending Jan. 1, 2020.

Anthony Orsini and Dr. Anthony Scappaticci were both re-appointed to the Torrington Area Health District Board of Health.

The council also voted to refund overpayments of property taxes.

During Town Council Comments, Councilor Dan Gentile reminded residents that he would hold an open forum every first Monday of the month at Town Hall.

“This is not an official meeting with a quorum. It’s just a chance to listen to the people like the coffee hours that Henri Martin and Whit Betts hold,” he said.
