DARIEN, Conn. – A public hearing on changes to the Darien Public Schools special education program led the town’s news this week. Here are some of the top stories from the past week in Darien.
? Darien’s Board of Education held a hearing Thursday to gather input on its measures to correct problems with its special education program.
? The state issued a voluntary recall of shellfish harvested from certain areas off Norwalk and Westport’s shores dating back to July 3, and shut down recreational shellfishing in those two towns and Darien. The recall stems from a species of bacteria known to cause stomach problems.
? Darien Police broke up a series of parties over the last week, making arrests and issuing tickets for providing alcohol to minors.
? Police are also looking into four cases of identity theft on the same street. Each involves residents receiving a bill for a “Bill Me Later” account and deliveries of unrequested items.
? Some sections of the Darien YMCA will be closed over the next month for maintenance. You can see a scheduled of closings here.
