The benefits, property services and other purchased services accounts is where the school budget carries a shortfall, including over $124,000 in other purchased services. Additionally, there is a surplus of about $47,000 in the salary account.

Westport Schools Superintendent Elliott Landon said school officials don’t see it as a “real deficit.”

Rudolph-Designed House Comes Down

By Jennifer Connic

Following failed efforts by preservationists to save it, the house at Westport’s 16 Minute Man Hill designed by Modernist architect Paul Rudolph was demolished today.WestportNow.com Image
Today’s demolition of 16 Minute Man Hill ended weeks of controversy during which preservationists tried to save the structure. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com ©2007 WestportNow.com

Precisely at 9 a.m.—when construction can begin on weekends in Westport—a giant yellow claw of an excavator began attacking the corner of the structure as contract owners David and Yvette Waldman looked on in a light rain. By the end of the afternoon, it was gone.

The Waldmans hired a policeman to keep journalists and the curious off the property as the demolition got underway. The exception was WestportNow photographer Dave Matlow.

“It’s sadly ironic that as interest in Modernist architecture is awakening, this house goes down,” said Morley Boyd, Westport Historic District Commission chairman. “This serves as an example that underscores the importance of designating a home as historic. If a house is not designated, it isn’t safe.”
