SHELTON — The city is putting another of its properties back on the tax rolls but won’t say who is buying it.

The Board of Aldermen at its meeting Thursday voted to sell a piece of property listed as 0 Coram Ave. — a vacant piece of property on the corner of Coram Avenue and Cornell Street — for $58,000.

“This was not a major undertaking,” Board of Aldermen President John Anglace Jr. told Hearst Connecticut Media, “but it is significant for the city to get this piece of property back on the tax rolls and off our liability and maintenance list.”

City officials did not identify the purchaser of the property.

In other business, the police department will soon have two new vehicles added to its fleet. The Board of Aldermen approved $104,409 for the purchase of two new fully outfitted Dodge Durangos. The funding will come from bonding.

The aldermen also voted to appoint Joseph Paglario, unaffiliated, to the Water Pollution Control Authority. Paglario is replacing former member Bill Gannon, whose term expires on Dec. 6, 2021.
