From Brian Lockhart, CT Post:
Councilman Ernie Newton said he does not owe the city for his new sidewalk, the city owes him.
“There is a possibility this happened to not just me, but other people,” the East End politician said.
Newton’s new walkway cost $3,935.50 and, under a cost-sharing program, he agreed to pay half–$1,967.75–within 30 days of the Jan. 4 billing date.
Newton did not pay, so in April the city placed a lien on his home on Reed Street, along with the properties of 41 other delinquent property owners.
