The Cheshire Town Council recently appointed Jeffery Donofrio from the law firm of Ciulla & Donofrio, LLP, in North Haven, as the new town attorney. Donofrio is currently the town attorney for both Berlin and North Haven, and has been practicing commercial litigation in Connecticut since 1990.
Donofrio is expected to start in his new role on April 1.
Cheshire Town Council Chairman Rob Oris expressed his support for the new appointment, which was made at the Feb. 9 meeting.
“The Town Council received numerous excellent responses and options and the process was thorough and was led by the Planning Committee of the Town Council,” he said at the meeting. “I believe attorney Donofrio is an excellent fit for Cheshire and I am sure he and his firm will provide Cheshire with top-notch legal services at a cost-effective rate. I sincerely thank our current attorney, Al Smith, and all his associates, for their years of service to Cheshire.”
Donofrio’s contract was negotiated to $9,250 per month.
