NEW LONDON — Council passed a resolution Monday to put a 3.5-mill infrastructure levy on the November ballot, estimated to raise just over $100,000 a year.

Work on both the water treatment plant and the water tower is progressing, administrator Shawn Pickworth said in his report to council.

Council approved Pickworth’s request to begin the application process for funding the wastewater treatment plant project. He is waiting for the preconstruction meeting for repaving Johnson Drive, Pearl Street and the village parking lot.

Crews repaired two major water leaks, one on East Main Street and the second on Hooker Street. Pickworth thanked Virgil Giles, from the village of Greenwich, and Norwalk workers for their help.

The beach at the Reservoir Park is getting a makeover and attendance both at the campground and other facilities is breaking records.

A park board meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m., Monday in council chambers.
