Fuelish Proposal for Parkville

On tonight’s City Council agenda is an item that should sound familiar. The Stop & Shop on New Park Avenue has tried to install a gas station in the past, only to be met with vocal opposition from Parkville residents. Tonight, the store is trying again.

Currently, there is a Stop & Shop with a fueling station approximately 2.5 miles away in West Hartford. Other gas stations are closer.

A large showing from Stop & Shop employees is expected as workers have been promised $50 for attending tonight’s meeting in uniform.

The image of this sign was posted in several places online late last month.

Another potential item of interest is the proposed $330,000 settlement in a suit filed following the drowning of a youth in a pool at Pope Park.

The meeting takes place in the City Hall Council Chambers. The public comment portion begins at 6pm; official meeting is scheduled to start at 7pm. By showing up a few minutes early and adding one’s name to the list, anybody is permitted to speak during the time for comments.
