Montville Keeps Fighting Sex Offender Facility

MONTVILLE, Conn. (AP) – The Montville Town Council has voted to continue its legal battle against a residential sex-offender treatment facility proposed for town.

The council voted 3-2 Monday to keep fighting the 24-bed facility that would be built on the grounds of Corrigan-Radgowski Correctional Center. One councilor was sick and one abstained.

The town has already spent $87,000 in the legal fight. Councilor Dana McFee says the money has been well spent because opposition to the facility has been building and the state is reconsidering exactly who will be placed at the treatment center.

Councilor Candy Buebendorf voted against the measure. She says the town should concentrate on efforts to reach an agreement with the state to ensure the security and safety of the town’s citizens.
