RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- Ridgefield High School and town officials are working to find $125,000 in order to fix an iron sewer pipe before it erodes and ends up collapsing and causing severe damage, according to the Ridgefield Press.
School officials would like to fix the pipe, which has continued to breakdown over the past several years, in June when school is closed. The money had originally been part of the 2016-17 capital budget, but those monies are not available until July 1, said the Ridgefield Press.
In an effort to find the money, the school board met earlier this week to see if they could find the money in this year's maintenance budget, added the Ridgefield Press. First Selectman Rudy Marconi, told the Ridgefield Press that he also favors quick action.
