MONROE, CT — Bernard Prushko Sr. operated a gas station at 536 Monroe Turnpike since 1968, but the building has been closed. First Selectman Ken Kellogg says it is now under corporate ownership, which plans to reopen it as a Shell gas station with a convenience store.
“They are working with Aquarion to bring in a waterline,” Kellogg said.
He said the property has a well, but the Connecticut Department of Public Health wants it to have city water instead.
The first selectman said he and William Holsworth, the town’s community and economic development coordinator, contacted Aquarion Water Company and are working with the developer to ensure everything is done as efficiently as possible.
Holsworth said Town Planner Rick Schultz is also helping out with the process. Holsworth said there are water line connections at Rite Aid and Big Y World Class Market that the property could tap into.
