Jan 31, 2020

BEACON FALLS — The town has a new engineering firm as well as new legal counsel.

The town has contracted with Milone & MacBroom, a civil engineering and landscape architecture firm based in Cheshire, for engineering services. Paul DeStefano, lead project engineer for transportation with the firm, is the town’s contact.

Milone & MacBroom will provide on-call engineering services for the town for three years, under the agreement. The firm’s fee is $175 per hour. Sometimes it may charge the town a flat rate for work on some projects.

“It does come down to hourly, but sometimes it may just be because they’re going to look at a project and they’re going to flat rate it for whatever that project might be,” First Selectman Gerard Smith said.

The town must give a 30-day written notice if it wants to cancel the agreement with Milone & MacBroom.

The town received eight bids for the job. Smith said he chose Milone & MacBroom because the firm is best suited to serve the town. He added the firm offers a broad range of services and can be a single point of contact for the town’s engineering needs.
