Description

In April 2008 a soft blockage in the main line on Wedgewood Dr. caused sewage to back up into our finished basement. The City of Torrington admitted their fault immediately and paid a cleaning company to come in and clean up for one whole week. Almost two years later we are still waiting for the town to settle with us for something more than $8,000.00 dollars. Estimates we have retained in the last 2 years have ranged from $22,000.00-$71,000.00. These estimates are for restoring our 3 rooms in the basement to their previous condition and not even looking at our losses of furniture and possessions from contaminated water. At present the City of Torrington's insurance company is pressuring us to sign a release for $8,000.00 which we haven't and Mayor Bingham is trying to say he can't get involved because the city's insurance co. and our lawyer AGREED on a settlement. This is not possible as only the property owners(my husband and I) could have signed a release on this, and we haven't. Two years without my downstairs, still paying taxes, and no help from the town.
