Mayor Harry Rilling joined Norwalk's leadership team at Fox Run Elementary School Thursday night to speak to West norwalk residents on a number of concerns ranging from public school improvement, committee issues and infrastructure.
"We have zoning commissioners here, we have the zoning department here, we have the DPW council people here, all of whom have a part in making sure what's happening in Norwalk is what we want happening."
Rilling says he's interviewing candidates for a new human resource director and starting to appoint new members of varying backgrounds to the Oak Hills Park Authority.
"I am not in favor of the driving range down behind the restaurant down behind where it was," said Rilling. "I think a smaller driving range out at the second green and sixth tee might be doable, I haven't seen the plans yet so I can't really say I will be for it or against it. I'd have to see the magnitude or the scope of the project before I have an opinion."
Councilman Dave McCarthy discussed efforts in changing the city's curbside garbage collection.
Currently only houses connected to the city's sanitary sewer get their trash collected through the city's program.
"By way of explanation, the sewer and your house being connected to it has been the driving factor as to whether you receive curb-side garbage pick up provided by the city," said Dave McCarthy of the Norwalk Common Council. "Apparently over the last 20 to 30 years there have been a few efforts to change that."
