Earlier this month, a Foxon Road shopping plaza was ordered vacated and shuttered by East Haven Fire Marshal Charles Miller because its owner, David Koskerides of Norwalk, refused to fix fire protection systems. Tuesday, according to East Haven Fire Department Chief Matthew Marcarelli, a fire protection contractor completed repairs to the sprinkler system and fire alarm system. "Once the systems were tested, the fire marshal authorized the re-opening of the liquor store and the diner," Marcarelli said. The 665 Foxon Road shopping center is home to East Haven Discount Wine & Liquor and Route 80 Café. It was shut down June 2. Marcarelli said that while "some fire code issues that are still in the abatement process remain, they are not as serious as the fire protection systems and are not in the impacted businesses.
