The borough is seeking grant funds to investigate and remediate a potentially contaminated property on Rubber Avenue to help a business possibly expand.
The Board of Mayor and Burgesses last week authorized Mayor N. Warren “Pete” Hess to pursue a $25,000 brownfield remediation grant from the Environmental Protection Agency.
Naugatuck Economic Development Corporation President and CEO Ronald Pugliese, who sits on the Naugatuck Valley Council of Governments Regional Brownfields Partnership, said the grant would be used to investigate whether the property at 251 Rubber Ave. is contaminated and do any remediation if needed.
The property, which is owned by Ramos Cecilia Paiva Trustee, is 0.79 acres and has a 3,285-square-foot building on it, according to the property card. The property is assessed at $166,250.
