Proposed New Haven Line Cuts Affect Westporters

UPDATE As part of its cost-cutting efforts, Metro-North has proposed eliminating two weekday afternoon trains that stop in Westport and shortening some trains that will make them more crowded.

In addition, a Greenwich stop will be added to the 1:12 a.m. train from Grand Central Terminal (GCT) that now reaches Westport at 2:18 a.m. and Greens Farms at 2:22 a.m.

Metro-North said these changes and others—with the ones affecting the New Haven Line subject to approval of the Connecticut Department of Transportation—will save $5 million annually. Effective date is June 21. But Connecticut has already said it won’t go along.

Under the proposal, trains to be eliminated will be the 1:34 p.m. from GCT that arrives in Westport at 2:37 p.m. and the 3:08 p.m. from Westport arriving at GCT at 4:12 p.m.

CL&P: Restored 161,000 Storm-Caused Outages

As of mid-day today, Connecticut Light & Power said it has restored more than 161,000 storm-caused outages in the state, including more than 7,000 in Westport, and is currently working to complete repairs on the last remaining customers.

None of the remaining outages is in Westport.

Since the three-day storm hit the region one week ago today, CL&P said it worked around the clock with assistance from utility crews from as far away as Canada and Ohio to restore outages affecting approximately 130,000 individual customers.

A number of customers, including in Westport, experienced multiple outages as lines were energized and de-energized around them, the utility said.

Rell: Business Tax Filing Extended Due to Storm

Some Fairfield County businesses will have an additional two weeks to file certain state tax returns, Governor M. Jodi Rell said today.

“Last weekend’s storms caused damage to several businesses as well as days-long blackouts throughout Fairfield County,” Rell said.

“As a result some business owners or their preparers were unable to meet the March 15 filing deadline for Connecticut subchapter S corporation, regular corporation filings and other business tax filings on that date.”

Rell said tax returns for businesses intended for the state Department of Revenue Services (DRS) will now be due on April 1.

Volunteers Clean Up Longshore Golf Course Image
An army of about 60 volunteers turned out today to clean up Westport’s Longshore Club Park golf course. The annual event is sponsored by the Longshore Men’s Golf Association whose members were joined today by both male and female members of the Staples golf teams. Michael Erdman, president of the Golf Association said, “We pushed for a heavier turnout this year because of the debris from the storm.”  He said the annual effort is to aid Dan Rackliffe, superintendent of the golf course, “so that Dan’s crew can focus on the heavy duty stuff.”  He added, “We do this because all love the game of golf and it helps support the town.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for
