Town Council makes changes to field committee


SOUTHINGTON — The Town Council voted unanimously Monday night to change the mission, makeup and name of the Turf Committee.

The new Facility Advisory Committee will make recommendations on all high school fields and the use of the Derynoski School gym, said Town Council Chairman Mike Riccio. The Turf Committee focused solely on the artificial turf field at the high school.

Derynoski’s gym is large and the committee will explore possible recreational uses, Riccio said.

The six-member Turf Committee, consisting of town officials from different boards and two ex-officio members, was changed to a five-person committee.

The new panel will be made up of the director of recreation, the high school athletic director, a town councilor, Board of Education member, and Mike DeFeo, chairman of the Turf Committee.

The council agreed to have Councilor Dawn Miceli continues as the liaison between the committee and council.

Councilor Stephanie Urillo said she would like to see a member of the Board of Finance on the committee.

“I don’t want to make the committee too big now,” Riccio said.

“The Board of Finance was on there in the beginning because (it) was looking at the installation and the cost of the field.”

“I think what we’re trying to do is start with a core group,” said councilor Victoria Triano.
