Town settles Penfield Pavilion claim for $1.75 million

Fairfield has settled its insurance claim for damage to Penfield Pavilion by Superstorm Sandy, according to First Selectman Mike Tetreau.

The insurer, Connecticut Interlocal Risk Management Agency, agreed to pay $1.75 million on the claim, and will consider additional payments if the town discovers previously hidden damage as it renovates the pavilion, Tetreau said.

The insurance payment is just one source of funding for the pavilion repair project, which will also draw on a $500,000 state grant and any money resulting from the town’s application for FEMA funds. FEMA funding could cover 75% of the cost of flood mitigation upgrades, according to Tetreau.

The pavilion has been closed for use since Sandy’s storm surge swept over the beach in October 2012.
