RTM Says Yes to Conservation, No to Assessor

By James Lomuscio

In the final round of Representative Town Meeting (RTM) budget hearings Monday night and early today, the legislative body said yes to restoring $30,000 to the Conservation Department and no to restoring $44,000 to the Assessor’s office.

It set the municipal budget at $63.12 million, making overall Westport expenses including the Board of Education budget more than $173.72 million for 2010-2011.

By a vote of 28 to 5 in favor of the Conservation Department restoration, the RTM overturned its vote last week which was not to restore that amount to retain all five members of the department.

The vote came after the RTM voted by the same 28 to 5 margin to reconsider its previous vote in light of what was considered new evidence presented by department boosters who argued that preserving the town’s environment was priceless.

New at Police HQ: ‘Friendly’ Lobby Window, Reduced Hours

By James Lomuscio

Westporters who had to go to the Police Department today to pay for parking tickets, railroad parking permits or to get copies of accident reports found their visits less foreboding, to hear Deputy Chief Dale E. Call tell it.WestportNow.com Image

Gone were the days when when the public would have to make inquiries to an officer behind dark glass before heading to an elevator to the second floor.

“It’s more customer friendly,” Call said about the new window that opened on the first floor lobby for ticket payments and report requests. “That’s the primary reason. And, it’s a more a efficient way to do business.”

Also in the name of efficiency and in response to departmental budget cuts, the number of hours the window is open will be reduced effective Monday, May 17.

Honoring Our Heritage: 41 Old Road

WestportNow.com Image
Robin Kallman-Hoving and her family are honoring Westport’s heritage by displaying a Westport Historical Society plaque identifying their home at 41 Old Road as the Backiel House, built in 1910 by John S. Backiel. The Kallman-Hoving family purchased the house in 2006 and received a Westport Historic District Commission Preservation Award in 2009.  “In a neighborhood that has seen a number of demolitions of older homes, the Backiel House now serves as an example of how an older house can regain its charm by returning the architecture to its beginnings,” the commission said in its commendation.
