Used motor oil can be disposed of properly and recycled at the transfer station. See the attendant at the hopper.
After several meetings, and many answers, residents are still wondering why a “simple” restoration project to re-open Peck Place School after a pipe burst and flooded areas of the building, is now said to cost upwards of $2 million.
This week, at a special meeting, the Board of Selectmen (BOS) agreed to send the proposals for phases 2 and 3 of the remediation to the Board of Finance (BOF). The Board of Education (BOE) met after that and now, BOE Business Manager Kevin McNabola will present and itemized list of ALL of the repairs and costs to the BOS on Monday, Feb. 24, at 4:30 p.m. at Town Hall.
The BOF meets later that evening, and then we all will know for sure what is going on.
If all goes according to plan, Orange Live will post a copy of the itemized list following the BOS meeting.

Maplewood at Orange received the 2013 Shining Star Award for supporting the Senior Wish Society of Milford. The award recognizes Maplewood’s commitment and dedication to the Senior Wish Society, with their recent contribution (see photo).
Senior Wish Society assists Milford and Orange seniors with purchases and expenses they may not be able to afford. The mission of the society is to bring together providers of services to the elderly for the purpose of granting wishes to elderly recipients of limited income.
This donation is the result of Maplewood at Orange’s recent annual Festival of Trees event where local businesses, organizations and individuals donate decorated holiday trees that are part of a silent auction event.
“Maplewood of Orange is proud to support the local community and charities such as the Senior Wish Society of Milford. We are happy to lend a hand to organizations that make a difference in the lives of seniors, all of whom we hold near and dear to our hearts at Maplewood,” said Amber Braman, Executive Director of Maplewood at Orange.
There is a Special Board of Selectmen’s meeting tonight at Town Hall at 5 p.m.
The Selectmen and Key School officials will discuss the proposed remediation work and costs at Peck Place School.
As you may know, the Board of Selectmen approved Phase 1 of the remediation plan at the Feb. 12 meeting.
Tonight, they will discuss Phase 2 and 3 (the proposed contingency plan is NOT on the agenda).
First Selectman posted the following on his Facebook Page:
“There seems to much confusion about tonight’s Board of Selectman’s meeting. The meeting is to discuss in further detail two contracts submitted by the OBOE for consideration. These are phase 2 and phase 3 for remediation work at Peck Place School.
There is NO agenda item for Contingency plan as put out there by the OBOE. That would be a Legislative charge of the OBOE.
I anticipate better explanation in person than the one and two page documents forwarded to the Selectmen for consideration. Then action will be taken on the contracts.7
There is no other item on the agenda.”
At last Wednesday’s BOS meeting, I believe they said there won’t be any public comment section during this meeting.

Last Saturday, members of the Orange Volunteer Fire Department gathered at the firehouse at 9 a.m.
They split into crews, took their assignments and went on Fire Hydrant Duty.
Each crew went around to different neighborhoods and cleared out fire hydrants that had been buried by the most recent snowfall — or had been covered by a passing snowplow.
In many cases the hydrants were located directly in front of someone’s home, but had never been cleared by the resident.
Here is a VIDEO of three firefighters shoveling out a hydrant on Route 34 directly in front of the CT DOT Garage.
They arrived and immediately started working — 2 1/2 minutes later, the hydrant was cleared.
After a couple of hours of hydrant duty, the volunteer firefighters also responded to a couple of calls.
If you have a hydrant in front of your home, or near your property please take a few seconds, or minutes to clear around it when the snow goes up to or above the side arms where the firefighters need to attach the hoses. If they can’t get a wrench in to open it, then they can’t use it.
Officers learned that Desiray Morrison, 25, of 386 Meadowbrook Ct, West Haven had been in the restaurant and started arguing with the manager, causing a disturbance.
She was issued an infraction ticket for her actions.
He was born to the late Joseph Marchitto and surviving Jennie Marchitto on May 5, 1941.
Michael grew up in West Haven, CT. He graduated from Notre Dame, West Haven, in 1958, attended the University of Bridgeport where he received his Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1962, a Master’s in Business Administration from the University of New Haven in 1980 and in 1994 he graduated from the Harvard Business School Executive Education Advanced Management Program
He is survived by his wife of 40+ years, Joanne Sullivan Marchitto, his two sons Michael Marchitto and wife Kathryn, Andrew Marchitto and wife Alona, two grandchildren Joseph and Ribecka, and his sister Judy Conlon.
Michael retired as an executive at Sikorsky Aircraft in 2000.
Friends and Family may call from 4-8 p.m. on Monday February 17, 2014 at Cody-While Funeral Home 107 Broad St. Milford.
Funeral services will be 10 a.m. Tuesday, February 18 at Cody-White Funeral Home. Interment to follow at Mount Saint Peter Cemetery in Derby, CT.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in Michael’s name to the Smilow Cancer Hospital or CT Hospice.
