3 Questions for Town Manager Bonnie Therrien: Aug. 6

Bonnie Therrien, North Branford's interim town manager, takes a moment to update us on the latest town news.

The new '3 Questions' feature has been such a success that we're bringing on five more town officials, including Bonnie Therrien (interim town manager), Fran Merola (public works), Robert Hull (libraries), Luisa Breen (social services) and Judy Barron (senior center) to keep up updated on happenings in their departments.

They'll be answering the regular questions of 'What's new in your department?' and 'What's something residents should know?' and catching up on all of the 'favorites' questions, including your favorite thing about summer, favorite movie and favorite food.

North Branford Patch: What’s new in your department?
Therrien: We held a , which was really helpful in finding out were our strengths and weaknesses are with Emergency Preparedness. We will be following this up with additional training of our staff; developing a pre storm communication plan for our residents; and checking those facilities that we use for shelters to make sure they are ready in case of an emergency.

North Branford Patch: What's something residents should know?
Therrien: Based on the Drill we had last week, it is up to each household in North Branford to be self-sufficient in emergency situations for at least five days with adequate flashlights, batteries, water, food and other necessities and those should be located somewhere in your home that everyone is aware of and easily accessible.

North Branford Patch: What's your favorite food?
Therrien: A great shephard’s pie. 

North Branford Patch: What's your favorite movie?
Therrien: Love & Basketball

North Branford Patch: What's your favorite thing about summer?
