Zappi, 49, will serve out the remainder of the term of Wolgast, 73, which ends next March.

Wolgast cited “family, civic, and philanthropic commitments” as the reason he is unable to continue as Republican Town Committee chair. Zappi had been vice-chair.

“Bob Zappi has made outstanding contributions to the organization during the last two years,” Wolgast said in a statement.

Beginning at 10 a.m. a stream of buyers made their way to the market where, amid the bleats from four goats, they found a bounty of locally produced fruits, vegetables and baked goods.

The market will operate every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. through October. It is meant to allow working people to join those shoppers who frequent the Thursday market next to the Westport Country Playhouse.

The grassy setting surrounded by woods on a hill off Imperial Avenue “offers easier accessibility” than the Playhouse site, said Selectwoman Shelly Kassen.

Tax Bill Mailing Snafu Hits Westport Residents

UPDATED Thousands of Westporters going to their mailbox today may have found their annual tax bill from the town along with someone else’s.

Tax Collector George Underhill acknowledged that there was a major snafu involving the mailing by a Waterbury-based company that sent many tax bills to the wrong address.

“We only became aware of it as the bills hit the mailboxes today,” he said. “We are getting in touch with the company that did the mailing and trying to figure out what went wrong.”

Later, he said that the company told him there appeared to be a problem with the postal address verification process which, ironically, was intended to ensure the accuracy of the mailing address.

Town Sets Annual Road Maintenance

Public Works Director Stephen Edwards has announced that Westport has started its annual road maintenance program.

Each year, the town paves or mills a portion of its 123 miles of roadways and on average, each roadway receives this attention every 12 years, he said.

“Residents are asked to refrain from parking on the road, and as they travel through these areas to respect the directions given by the traffic control personnel,” said Edwards. “The town regrets any inconvenience the road maintenance work will cause.  We thank citizens for their patience and cooperation.”

The following roads will be paved, or milled and paved over the course of the next three weeks:
