NPU CHIEF LEAVES ETHICS HEARING

Monday night’s Norwich Ethics Commission probable cause hearing was testy at times, with the General Manager of the city’s Public Utilities John Bilda  leaving  before it was over. Bilda, along with NPU Division Manager Steve Sinko, and Utilities Commission vice-chairman Robert Groner are being investigated again for possible ethics violations, after going on an all-expense trip through the Connecticut Municipal Electric Energy Cooperative. The trip now in question was an October 2015 excursion to a posh West Virginia golf club.

Cell Tower Concerns

 

A lawyer representing Verizon was on hand last week to address Canterbury residents’ concerns about a new cell tower expected to be built in the town. About 20 citizens attended the presentation. One of the questions was about the possibility of health risks to people and animals due to radio waves.   Attorney Ken Baldwin explained that this would be a low power facility with the waves emitted well within the safe range.
