The Norwalk Common Council was welcomed by a local girl scout troop color guard at the beginning of its meeting Tuesday night. The council declared March as Women's History Month in Norwalk, an effort sponsored by councilwoman Michelle Maggio, which recognizes the accomplishments of local women like the late Jennie Cave, president of the League of Women Voters and the first and only woman elected as mayor for the city of Norwalk. 

"Now, therefore, be it resolved by the Common Council of the City of Norwalk, that March is designated as Women's History Month in Norwalk," Maggio read. "The Citizens of Norwalk are called upon to observe March as Women’s History Month with appropriate consideration and study. The accomplishments of Jennie Cave and other Norwalk women should be taught and discussed and most of all remembered."

The board also appointed Nabil Valencia, founding member of A Better South Norwalk to the Fair Rent Commission and Joe Kendy to the Oak Hills Authority.  

"She's always willing to get involved," said David Watts. "She's very generous, kind and humble. Nabil, I know that you would bring your wisdom and guidance to this group and I wish you well." 

The council also agreed on a $3.2 million paving plan to the Perrry Avenue bridge rehabilitation project over the Norwalk River. Eighty percent of the project will be federal funded and twenty percent city funded.
