The home sustained severe damage when a pipe in the second floor bathroom gave way. The residents discovered the problem after returning from an out of town trip.

WACky Family Day Today: “Felting for Fun”

WestportNow.com Image
The Westport Arts Center’s WACky Family Sundays presents “Felting for Fun” today 2 to 4 p.m., at 51 Riverside Ave. Felting is an ancient craft in which vibrant wool fibers are layered to create a work of art. Through the addition of hot soapy water, the wool fibers are agitated and caused to shrink. This process allows the individual fibers to literally “knot-together” and become a single piece of strong fabric. Cost is $10 per child, adults and caregivers are free. Call (203) 222-7070 for information. Picture is from last year’s event. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Contributed photo

Westport Receives $49,990 Grant to Monitor Water Quality

First Selectman Gordon F. Joseloff announced today that Westport has been awarded a matching grant of $49,990 from the Connecticut Department of Agriculture to monitor water quality affecting shellfish beds.

The project will provide expanded data on indicator bacteria levels identifying areas of contamination that have an impact on recreational and commercial oyster and clam fisheries, he said.

The grant application was submitted by Westport’s Conservation Department and the Harbor Watch/River Watch program of Earthplace, The Nature Discovery Center. Funding will allow the program to expand a shoreline survey of the Saugatuck and Norwalk estuaries started in 2008.

Last year, Westport received a similar grant of $47,943.

Westport National Explains Madoff Ties

The bank sent a letter to clients and employees after two law firms in Florida said investors had retained them to investigate claims that the bank had sent customer funds to Madoff, a securities dealer under investigation for an alleged $50 billion Ponzi scheme. (See WestportNow Dec. 31, 2008)

“First, be assured that the Bank has not invested any of its own funds or the funds of its depositors with Madoff, and the Bank has not advised any customer or anybody else to invest with Madoff,” said Richard T. Cummings Jr., president of the bank at 1495 Post Road East, a division of Connecticut Community Bank, N.A.

In 1999, at the request of an unidentified local company, Westport National Bank replaced another financial institution as the custodian for a number of individuals and entities that were investing with Bernard L. Madoff Securities, Cummings said.

Error Leads to Corrected Auto Tax Bill Mailing

Westporters who registered a car between Oct. 1, 2007 and Aug. 1 of this year will be getting corrected auto tax bills, First Selectman Gordon F. Joseloff said today.

He said after the recent mailing of the supplemental motor vehicle tax bills, it was discovered that the amount due should have reflected a credit for a partial year registration but did not.

Corrected tax bills have been mailed, he said. Payments can be made until Jan. 31 without penalty.

Residents who have already made payment of the tax are asked to contact the Office of the Assessor at (203)341-1070.
