President Trump has declared the State of CT a disaster relief area, which mean that Brookfield’s application for FEMA aid will move forward. This is very good news as the town continues to work to restore our facilities and parks and it will allow us to return the funds we appropriated to repair the storm damage to the General Fund. This declaration is only for public assistance at the current time. Individual assistance for residents is still under review. We will update as we continue to receive more information.
