State Bond Commission approves funding for towns of Willington and Woodstock, Windham-Tolland 4-H Camp, and North Central CT Regional Public Safety


State Sen. Jeff Gordon (R-Woodstock), member of the legislature’s Appropriations Committee, today applauded the State Bond Commission’s approval of funding for the towns of Willington and Woodstock, the Windham-Tolland 4-H Camp, and North Central Connecticut Regional Public Safety for infrastructure and public safety expenses.


The grant-in-aid awards include:

  • $2 million to the Town of Willington for Schofield Road and Village Hill Road improvements.
  • $225,000 to the Town of Woodstock for Muddy Brook, Bungay Fire Brigade, and Woodstock Volunteer Fire Association diesel exhaust removal systems.
  • $1 million to the Windham-Tolland 4-H Camp in Pomfret for emergency dam repairs.
  • $400,000 to the North Central CT EMS Council for communications systems.
  • $8 million to the North Central CT Police and Public Safety for infrastructure projects.


“Thank you to the legislature for authorizing this funding and to Governor Lamont and the Bond Commission for their approval. This aid will help Willington with needed roadway repairs; Woodstock with diesel exhaust removal systems for the fire department facilities to keep our first responders healthy; the Windham-Tolland 4H Camp for emergency dam repairs; and Ellington, Stafford, Tolland, and Vernon in part with public safety regional communications improvements.


“Each of these projects impacts the quality of life in our area for the better and I have been advocating for these critical investments in our towns and in northeastern Connecticut,” said Sen. Gordon.


The state funding is part of a larger agenda which includes similar projects across Connecticut affecting economic development, public safety, transportation, and more.


Following today’s approval, the funds can now be allocated.
