EAST GREENWICH â€” Happy news can't wait.
Because he needed the Town Council's permission to extend the Greenwich Odeum's property tax abatement past its original deadline that night, Odeum Corp. Chairman Frank Prosnitz announced Monday night his board had received the $141,900 grant it requested from the Champlin Foundations for restoration of the historic Main Street theater.
With the grant money on its way, the council voted unanimously to extend the tax abatement on the 59 Main St., building to March 31, bringing the nearly five-year effort to reopen the theater closer to a Hollywood ending.
