COVID 19 - VACCINATIONS

Governor Lamont announced that eligibility for COVID 19 vaccine will continue to be based primarily on age.

Next Eligibility Roll-Out: March 1

 

Effective March 1, individuals aged 55-64 who live or work in Connecticut will be eligible to schedule appointments and receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

 

In addition, with the goal of fully reopening schools, all Connecticut pre-K - Grade 12 educators and support staff as well as licensed childcare professionals living or working in the state will also be eligible.

 

The continued use of age-based eligibility is designed to simplify the scheduling and administration of COVID 19 vaccines for both recipients and providers alike.

 

As the Department of Public Health sought to operationalize a process based on workforce status as well as medical conditions, the complexity and challenges of such a process became clear. Complex processes often further marginalize vulnerable communities. We hope that a simpler approach will support a more equitable distribution of COVID 19 vaccine.

 

Healthcare personnel, congregate setting staff and residents, and individuals 65+ will of course remain eligible for COVID 19 vaccine.

                Homeowner’s Tax Credit Program Notice 

Due to the growing concerns over the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Governor Lamont has issued Executive Order No. 7S which suspends the requirement for homeowners who are already on the homeowners’ tax credit program to come in and reapply this year.  They will automatically get the same credit that they received last year. 

First time applicants must submit proof of income by May 15th, 2020.  This includes the 2019 1099 Social Security statement, income tax return, or any other income for 2019.  The documents can be mailed, faxed, e-mailed or dropped off.

OPEN SPACE PLAN CITIZEN SURVEY

 

The Bozrah Inland Wetlands & Conservation Commission is undertaking preparation of an Open Space Plan, which will give direction to future conservation efforts in the Town of Bozrah.

 

Citizen feedback is an important component of the plan, and will allow the Commission to gauge the priorities of residents.

AFFORDABLE HOUSING PLAN SURVEY

 

The Bozrah Planning & Zoning Commission is developing an “affordable housing plan” as required by state statute. The plan will assess the needs for, and way to potentially address, housing affordability and supply in town. This plan is required to be completed by 2022 and must be completed updated every five years thereafter. This survey will help form valuable background information, allowing residents to give feedback regarding the housing needs that currently exist.
