Government Tracker " Avon Town Council 8/8/2006

Nicole Frey

How they voted: Unanimously approved.

What they said: Last year, the Avon Police Department cited several kids for drinking in a home, only to have a judge dismiss the charges because Avon’s laws only prohibit underage possession of alcohol in public places. The updated law prohibits any underage consumption of alcohol in any location in Avon and also allows a juvenile to be cited if he is under the influence of alcohol.

What this means to you: If you’re a kid in Avon, you drinking days are over -” or at least your legal drinking days.

What’s next: The law will be amended.

How they voted: Unanimously approved.

What they said: To further prevent people from leaving their trash outside and attracting bears, Avon police are no longer required to give a warning before issuing a fine. The fine may be from $1 to $200. Councilwoman Debbie Buckley asked that education efforts be increased and that new homeowners in the area be informed of the bear situation before they’re fined.

What this means to you: Keep your trash inside for your sake and the bears’.

What’s next: The law will be amended.

How they voted: Unanimously approved.

What they said: The boating community came out in force to support the whitewater park saying it will benefit the town economically and offer people of all ages something fun to do. Avon Town Engineer Norm Wood said the total project budget is estimated to be $523,950 and will be contracted to Ted Seipel Construction, Inc., the only firm that bid on the project.

What this means to you: Next summer, Avon will have a water park.

What’s next: With little building season left, construction will begin right away and should be completed this fall.
