For the second consecutive year, Gov. Jodi Rell is aiming to wipe away $5.8 million worth of earmarks designated for projects in Bristol.
Among them is a $4 million grant that would cover more than half the tab for Rockwell Park’s ongoing renovations.
Also on the chopping block is a $1.5 million allocation for the American Clock and Watch Museum, $200,000 for Indian Rock Nature Preserve and $83,170 to help the Bristol Community Organization expand Head Start.
All of the grants earmarked for Bristol were promised years ago and have languished since.
