Historical Society Makes Cuts Due to Financial Problems

Westport Historical Society officials said today they have eliminated two top staff positions because of financial problems growing out of a now-competed building expansion program.

At a press conference, Allen Raymond, society co-president, said the society has been carrying a $650,000 construction debt since the 2003 completion of the project to expand the building on the corner of Avery Place and Myrtle Avenue. In addition, the society has a $375,000 annual operating budget, he said.

As a result, the society’s leadership decided to cut the director and associate director positions, he said, which saves approximately $90,000 annually in the operating budget.

Denise Torv, director, and Katie Otey, associate director, both will end their tenures this month, according to a release, but both will continue to be involved with operations.

Snowstorm Blankets Westport, Causes Some Flooding

Westport missed the heaviest snowfall amounts as an intense winter storm blanketed the Northeast today. Some shoreline roads were flooded as the area saw periods of near blizzard conditions.

Unofficial measurement of Westport snowfall amounts ranged from 16 to 19 inches. New York City measured a record snowfall of 26.9 inches in Central Park, the highest tally since records started being kept in 1869.

Westport’s Public Works Department deployed all its 17 vehicles and called in private contractors to help clear its 123 miles of roadways as well as parking lots at schools and train stations.

“We came through it relatively unscathed,” said Westport First Selectman Gordon Joseloff, who toured the town in the fire command vehicle and later spent several hours on a Westport snowplow.
