Malloy to preside over final Bond Commission, OK millions
HARTFORD — Outgoing Gov. Dannel P. Malloy will oversee the allotment of millions in state bond funds, likely for the last time.
The State Bond Commission, which the Democrat chairs, is holding a special meeting on Tuesday.
The list of projects on the agenda is both long and varied.
There’s an allotment of $514,940 to pay for body cameras and storage devices for nine municipal police departments; $5.5 million to pay for improvements to the State Pier in New London; and $91.6 million for various transportation projects. The bulk of that funding — $78 million — is for interchange improvements along Interstate 84 in West Hartford.
Several arts organizations are poised to receive funding. For example, Goodspeed Musicals in East Haddam is expected to receive $400,000 to repair flood damage from September.
