Calling Out theWestport Votes at the Democratic Convention

WestportNow.com Image
Westport Democratic Town Committee Chairman Jim Ezzes reports on his delegation’s votes tonight for U.S. Senate at the state convention in Hartford. He said 12 of Westport’s delegates voted for Richard Blumenthal and five asked to be listed as abstaining. One of the delegates, Carol Anne Curry, said she had abstained because Blumenthal had passed up a “golden opportunity” to apologize, The New York Times reported. “People were ready to hear it,” she said, referring to his nationally televised news conference on Tuesday. “But to equivocate, and defend — it was just too much for me. What’s the matter with ‘I’m sorry’?”  (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Douglas Healey for WestportNow.com

Split Westport GOP Delegation Backs Debicella for Congress

WestportNow.com Image
Dan Debicella (l) stopped by the Westport delegation to the state Republican Party convention in Hartford today where he won the nomination to face one-term incumbent Democratic U.S. Rep. Jim Himes of Greenwich, in the 4th District. Debicella, a state senator from Shelton, won the support of 77 percent of the district delegates, and none of his three opponents—Easton First Selectman Thomas A. Herrmann, Rob Merkle, and Rick Torres—received the 15 percent necessary to qualify for a primary but are expected to try to collect the 1,988 petition signatures by June 8 in order to qualify. The Westport delegation was more evenly divided that the overall district, placing eight of its 13 votes for Debicella and five of its votes for Merkle, a Norwalk resident who owns a Westport recruiting firm.

WestportNow.com Image
An application is in process to acquire a permit to demolish the house at 53 Sturges Highway on the Westport-Fairfield line. Built in 1910, the 1 3/4-story conventional house has 1,533 square feet, is situated on a 1.2-acre lot and changed ownership in February for $740,000.  Because the house was built more than 50 years ago, the application will be reviewed by the Historic District Commission.

Co-sponsored by the Staples High School Green Club and Westport’s Green Village Initiative, the event, set to run from 12:30 to 6 p.m., is expected to draw “a least 1,000 throughout the day,” Aitkenhead said.

“We’re trying to really expose the community to all the amazing businesses and organizations and initiatives committed to sustainable living in and around Westport,” said Aitkenhead.

Honoring Our Heritage: 79 Coleytown Road

WestportNow.com Image
Christine and Gad Romann are honoring Westport’s heritage by displaying a Westport Historical Society plaque identifying their home at 79 Coleytown Road as the John Gray House which was built in circa 1820.  John Gray Jr. acquired the land from his father’s estate and built the home for himself and his wife, Abigail Coley.  Over the years, the property was enlarged and redone in the academic colonial revival style as a gracious country retreat. When the Romanns first saw the house they “fell in love and knew they we would buy it…realizing we were in a very unique place.  We walked into a heritage of happiness and we were willing to carry it on.” The house is currently on the market.

Dog Licenses Available Beginning June 1

Westport Town Clerk Patricia Strauss announced today that beginning June 1 dog licenses may be obtained from her office. All dogs over six months must be licensed.

“Licensing your dog verifies that rabies immunization is up to date, as the dog owner must present a copy of the pet’s rabies certificate when obtaining a license,” said Strauss. 

“A $75 infraction will be issued for any nonlicensed dog and for any dog not wearing a current dog tag attached to a collar around its neck or body.”

Fees for dog licenses are: $8 for neutered male or spayed female and $19 for male or female. There will be a $1 penalty per month for renewal licenses issued after June 30.

P&Z Puts Off Decision on Easing Liquor Sale Regulations

Westport’s Planning and Zoning Commission tonight put off a decision on easing restrictions regarding sale of alcohol in Westport’s non-resident zones.

The measure, which will be taken up at the P&Z’s June 10 meeting,  is one of several advanced by the commission which it says are intended to promote more nightlife in Westport and ease restrictions on restaurants and outdoor activities.

One of the proposed changes would eliminate the so-called 1,500-foot rule. This requires at least 1,500 feet separation of businesses selling liquor except for those with service bars, where only the wait staff receive drinks.

Police Chief Al Fiore told the commission he opposed the change because it would mean an increased demand for police services at a time when budget restraints limit the number of officers on patrol.
