    Mayor’s Night In and Community Canvass

    Tomorrow, Tuesday, October 5, I will be hosting Mayor’s Night In for all New Haven residents. This is a chance for us to meet one-on-one to discuss any issues or ideas you may have. The following night, Wednesday, October 6, City department and agency heads will be conducting a community canvass in the East Shore section of the City beginning at 6 p.m. Community canvasses are an opportunity for you to talk to City representatives about your questions, concerns and suggestions—all without leaving your home.

    National Disability Employment Awareness Month

    October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month. This month, more accessible taxis will become available in addition to a special program that will supplement the cost of cab rides for employment. Additionally, the City’s Office of Disability Services will be hosting its annual Disability Mentoring Day event, where Wilbur Cross High School students with disabilities spend the day with Southern Connecticut State University students with disabilities in an effort to encourage higher education with the ultimate goal of greater employment opportunities.

    Green Tip

    As the weather gets colder, have a technician inspect your furnace in order to make sure it is running safely and efficiently. Oil furnaces should be inspected yearly and gas furnaces every 2 to 3 years. A clean and properly tuned furnace can save 10% on heating costs!
