9/10/2021 - 9.10 TOWN UPDATE
Dear Fairfielders,
 
As summer winds down and we enter into the fall season, Fairfield welcomed thousands of our students back to school last week. It was so much fun to be invited to join Riverfield Principal Brenda Anziano, Superintendent Mike Cummings and Riverfield staff to greet students on their first day back. Riverfield students and staff took part in celebrating Mr. Gelsi for being named P.E. Teacher of the Year on opening day. The display of community, that I witnessed at Riverfield and so many times in all our schools through the years, was another reminder of why Fairfield is such a special town. 
 
I want to wish all Fairfield students, parents, teachers and staff a successful and happy school year!
STORM IDA AND FAIRFIELD

FLOODING

Last week, our Town endured significant flash flooding, following severe thunderstorms from the remnants of Hurricane Ida. My heart goes out to those in our community who suffered extensive damage to their homes and businesses from the storm.

As we continue to clean up the aftermath, I want to recognize and thank all of our emergency crews who worked around the clock assisting our residents. During the storm, our First Responders were literally rescuing residents from flooded homes and cars. They are Fairfield's heroes.

Last Thursday morning, in the aftermath of the storm, I visited areas of Town that had the most significant flooding, most notably areas along Rooster River and Mill Plain Road. We had homes with as much as 6+ feet of water in their basements. The Fire Department deployed community outreach units to these neighborhoods and provided guidance to homeowners and businesses, directing them to recovery resources.

Rooster River continues to cause major flooding to many areas in our community. It is the reason I felt it was important to include the Town's Phase I Rooster River Mitigation Plan for $3,250,000 million on my priority list for the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) federal funding. I also included another $1,420,000 to mitigate flooding in our downtown business district. The Town is continuing to assess facilities around Town. If you require assistance from a Town Department please utilize the Request for Service on our website: 
https://www.fairfieldct.org/311/request/add.


PRELIMINARY DAMAGE ASSESSMENT 
The Town of Fairfield is working with the State Department of Emergency Management and Homeland Security to seek Federal Aid for residents and businesses damaged as a result of Storm Ida. The first step in that process is to determine if statewide damage reaches the Federal threshold for a Presidential Disaster Declaration. It should be noted that the threshold for uninsured losses is very high: approximately $3.5M for Fairfield County and $5.5M Statewide and both thresholds must be met to qualify for Federal Aid.


Our Town’s Emergency Management Director and his team have estimated damages and expenses for the Town, as well as residential and business damage, and will submit those estimates to the State. If the thresholds are met, property and business owners will be contacted to get more detailed information. In the meantime, all residents and business owners who experienced uninsured losses due to Storm Ida are encouraged to document those losses through photos of damage and receipts for repairs or replacements. Updates on Federal Assistance will be shared when our application is reviewed.  

Look for updates on our Town’s Federal Assistance in both my newsletter and on our Town’s website under “Town of Fairfield News”.
Since my last newsletter, per the Governor’s Order, I ordered the flags at half-mast in honor of the 13 brave American service members, who paid the ultimate price while trying to rescue Americans and our Afghan allies in Afghanistan. This week, I ordered the flags at half-mast for CT State Trooper Brian Mohl, who lost his life in the line of duty during the storm.
COVID-19 UPDATES
I am encouraged that our community is taking the necessary steps to curb the impact of the COVID-19 Delta Variant, as we've seen recent improvements in the CDC’s and State’s categorizations of Fairfield County and the Town. There has been some leveling in various indicators, and I appreciate our residents continued efforts to help limit the spread of the virus.
 
Vaccination remains the most effective tool to limit the spread and severe consequences of COVID-19. Of Connecticut’s new COVID-19 cases in the last 7 days, nearly 70% were unvaccinated. In addition, this week’s 
State data indicates that those who are unvaccinated are at 5 times higher risk of being infected with COVID-19, 5 times higher risk of being hospitalized with COVID-19, and 10 times higher risk of dying from COVID-19.  Currently 70.62% of Fairfield’s population has had at least one dose of vaccine, with 66.38% being fully vaccinated. COVID-19 vaccination is widely available and I encourage all those eligible to get vaccinated as soon as possible. You can find the closest locations by texting you Zip Code to GETVAX and additional local vaccination clinics will be held as detailed below.
 
VACCINE CLINICS
The Fire Department and the Health Department are working together with CT DPH to host vaccination clinics at the Reef Road and Jennings Road Fire Stations on the following dates:
 
Fire Station 1 (Reef Road): First dose: 9/18/21 10 AM- 4 PM, Second dose: 10/9/21 10 AM- 4 PM
Fire Station 2 (Jennings Road): First dose: 9/19/21 10 AM- 4 PM, Second dose: 10/10/21 10 AM- 4 PM
Please check the Fire and Health Departments’ websites and social media in a few days for directions for how to sign up.
 
Also, both Fairfield Warde and Fairfield Ludlowe High Schools are working with the Health Department and CT DPH to host vaccination clinics for eligible high school and middle school staff and students in the next few weeks. Once the dates are confirmed, information will be sent out through the schools and will be posted online.
 
The Health Department will be offering COVID-19 booster doses, for those eligible, once the final guidance has been issued by the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP).  This should happen within the next month.
TOWN GOVERNMENT
CHARTER REVISION
When I gave my first State of the Town address in January of 2020, just 60 days after I was sworn into office, I shared with our community that Charter reform was long overdue. The Town Charter is our own version of a constitution by which most aspects of our Town Government is guided. Our Town hasn't had a Charter revision since 2006, and it is generally recommended that it be done roughly every 10 years. On August 30, the Board of Selectmen unanimously  approved a resolution to establish a Charter Revision Commission. (You can watch the Board of Selectmen meeting where this was discussed here.) The Charter Revision Commission will work over the next year to listen to the public, boards, commissions and departments and craft proposals based on those discussions, that will be considered by the Board of Selectman for approval and then placed on the ballot for residents to vote on in November 2022.  As this process unfolds, I encourage all our citizens to participate in this fundamentally important process.
AMERICAN RESCUE PLAN ACT FUNDING
On July 19, I hosted an informational workshop to present my proposed list of projects to utilize the $24.8 million in federal funding coming to Fairfield. You can watch my presentation, the public comments, and the follow up Q&A from the Board of Selectmen, Board of Finance and Representative Town Meeting 
here. The goal in selecting these projects was to have an impact on a large cross section in our community and address some long overdue infrastructure projects. We looked at the Town's capital improvement plan to identify shovel ready projects that qualified under the federal guidelines, as well as new ideas to help those impacted by COVID-19. On August 16, I did a follow-up meeting with the Board of Selectmen on the American Recovery Rescue Plan Act funding proposal. You can view that meeting hereLast night, the Board of Finance discussed ARPA funding. You can watch the meeting here.

The Board of Selectmen is scheduled to vote September 20th, Board of Finance September 21, and Representative Town Meeting September 27.
MATTRESS RECYCLING EVENT
Getting ready to dispose of an old mattress or box spring?  You can arrange to have your item recycled for a useful second life by dropping it off at a free, Town-wide mattress collection event to be held on Saturday, September 18 from 9 am to 1 pm at Veteran's Park, 909 Reef Road.

The event is sponsored by the Sustainable Fairfield Task Force (SFTF) in cooperation with the Mattress Recycling Council (MRC),  a nonprofit organization formed by the mattress industry to operate recycling programs in states that have enacted mattress recycling laws. 

Any mattress, no matter when it was purchased, can be brought to the event for no-cost recycling, assuming it is not damaged, heavily soiled or posing other health or safety risks.
NEW FACES IN THE POLICE DEPARTMENT
It's always a privilege to administer the oath of office to new officers joining the Fairfield Police Department. On Wednesday, I swore in Mia Barrow &  Bridget Melsenti, who started training at the police academy on Thursday. 
CUDDLE BEAR FUNDRAISER UPDATE | POLICE DEPARTMENT
A special thank you as well to Usborne Books & More who matched all of the donations!!!
 
Jaclyn launched this fundraiser with a goal of filling each squad car in town with hope (and hugs!) with a Cuddle Bear book and plush! Each set will go directly to a child in the local area. Officers can provide additional comfort to children experiencing difficult times through a story about being loved and a bear that they can hold onto when they are going through a hard and scary time. These sets were also available to officers to give to children that they meet while on patrol. Sometimes it can be the little things that mean the most, and the cuddles and hugs from Cuddle Bear can help little ones manage their big feelings. 
 
Thank you to Jaclyn Brunetto and all who contributed to the Cuddle Bear Fundraiser! Jaclyn and her family delivered 120 books and bears on Tuesday!

COMMUNITY NEWS

SHU GRAND OPENING
Last week, the Sacred Heart University Community Theatre, an 100-year-old iconic and cultural landmark in the heart of our downtown, held its official grand opening, after two years of renovations and revitalization. I want to offer my sincerest gratitude to Dr. Petillo, President of Sacred Heart University, and the Kleban family for their generous contribution to the Town of Fairfield. The University assumed a 10-year lease with Kleban Properties to create a premier, non-profit cinema arts, live performance and education venue at the former Community Theatre. It is so exciting to see a place that was an important part of my childhood, returned to its former glory and welcome talent and guests from all over the country. I encourage everyone to see a show and enjoy all this beautiful venue has to offer.

OVERDOSE AWARENESS 
On Overdose Awareness Day, recognized as August 31, we remembered those loved ones lost to overdoses and recommitted to ending the stigma of drug-related deaths. As a Town, we must do our part in reducing the toll of overdose in our community, which sadly claimed the lives of 1,372 Connecticut residents in 2020 and 38 in Fairfield the past six years.

Fairfield CARES, in conjunction with the Fairfield Health Department and Police Department, hosted its fourth annual Overdose Awareness Vigil on Sherman Green to remember those lives and the affected families and friends.

STATE REPRESENTATIVE LAURA DEVLIN HOLDS PUBLIC LISTENING FORUM ON JUVENILE CRIME 
Fairfield, along with many towns across the State has been experiencing car thefts, valuables stolen from motor vehicles, and other acts committed mostly by juveniles. For many homeowners and property owners, these crimes are personal; their cars, garage, or home are being violated, and sometimes the crimes rise to more
 dangerous acts of violence. That is why State Representative Laura Devlin (R-134) will be holding an expert panel discussion with members of local enforcement, state prosecutors, and public defenders for a community conversation on the issue of juvenile crime.

Pre-registration is required, to ensure seating. Please register here. To submit a question to be read to the panel, please go here.

This Juvenile Crime 'Listening' Forum is an important opportunity to hear the public's concerns, experiences, and questions on this serious issue. Rep. Devlin has assembled the expert panel as a way to provide background on these issues, but will spend the majority of the forum listening to concerned Fairfielders.
 
After the Forum, State Rep. Devlin will use resident's input to help craft policy with her legislative colleagues, which will hopefully address the current juvenile crime crisis. 
 
Anyone who has additional questions regarding the Crime Forum, should call State Rep. Devlin at her State Capitol office at 1.800.842.1423 or email her office at 
Laura.Devlin@housegop.ct.gov
HIGH HOLY DAYS & ANTI-SEMITISM
Between the Jewish holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are the 10 days of Atonement, which are an opportunity for repentance, reflection and change. The high holidays are the most religious time for Jewish people throughout the world. There has been a steady rise of anti-Semitism throughout our state and country, and I felt this is an appropriate time to highlight. 
 
#1 According to the just released, most recent FBI hate crime statistics from 2020, 59.1% of all hate crimes motivated by religion, were directed at Jews. Jews make up only about 2% of the US population.
 
#2 In CT, the most recent hate crime statistics for our state, released in 2018, almost 70% of all hate crimes which were motivated by religion were directed at Jews. Jews made up just about 3.5% of the CT population.
 
#3 According to the American Jewish Committee’s 2020 State of Antisemitism in America Report, a survey of both Jews and the American general public, there is a significant difference in awareness of antisemitism between Jews and the general public. Almost 90% of American Jews believe that antisemitism is a problem. However, nearly half of all US adults are not even familiar with the term antisemitism, 21% saying that they never heard the term and 25% saying that they are unsure of what it means.

I joined 41 other mayors and first selectpeople in Connecticut, along with 700 municipal officials across the country, to sign onto the joint initiative by the American Jewish Committee and the US Conference of Mayors to speak out against antisemitism, by declaring it incompatible with fundamental democratic values.

I hope our Jewish neighbors had a happy New Year and I wish you an easy fast this Yom Kippur.
Fairfielders, it's hard to believe that tomorrow will mark 20 years since our lives were forever changed by the terrorist attacks on our country. While those acts shattered steel, they did not shatter American resolve. This weekend and every day, we remember the Americans who perished in those attacks and their families, including the First Responders and the citizens who either risked or lost their lives to save their fellow countrymen on that fateful day.
Every year, Fairfielders gather at the Fire Station on Reef Road for a ceremony to reflect on our shared history that We Will Never Forget. Residents who would like to attend should arrive at 8:45AM for the 9:00AM ceremony.

The SHU Community Theatre will be hosting a free program of 
remembrance at 12:30 PM.

I hope you have a safe and enjoyable weekend.

Click here to read the newly released Connecticut Healthy Aging Data Report, which details older adult health in every Connecticut Community, including Fairfield. From the distribution of disease and disability to the impact of gender on health disparities to data on community engagement, housing and transportation, the report is a valuable guide for community leaders, agencies, planners, and residents to understand the older people living in our cities and towns. Funded by Tufts Health Plan Foundation, the first-of-its-kind report reveals individual community strengths and challenges to inform targeted interventions and planning.

Fairfield has approximately 9,822 residents age 65 or older. Compared to state average rates, Fairfield’s older residents fared better on some healthy aging indicators with lower rates of obesity, asthma, hypertension, depression, anxiety disorder - just to list a few. We are more likely to be nonsmokers and to take the health promotion step of meeting the CDC guidelines for aerobic physical activity.
