MONTVILLE, CT, March 20, 2014 (Local News) -The Town Council took the first step Tuesday night toward building a $5 million advanced pretreatment system for wastewater on Rand-Whitney Containerboard's property.

The council, in a 5-1 vote, accepted a $5 million grant from the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection. Town Attorney Matthew Auger, who attended Tuesday's meeting, told councilors that the action is not a binding commitment to build the technology on Rand-Whitney's property.

"All we're doing tonight is saying ‘yes' to $5 million," said Auger, who emphasized that the money is not a loan and is being given to Montville with "no strings attached."
