Light Turnout for Parks & Rec Walk-In Registration

It was a slower morning at the Westport Parks & Recreation offices at Longshore Club Park today compared to prior years on the first day of walk-ins for summer program passes. Westporter Peter Orkin has all the attention of staff member Jean Trimboli as he picks up his golf hand pass. Steve Rubin of the Parks & Rec staff attributed the lighter than normal turnout to the success of the online registration system that many residents used starting a week ago.

Modest Ways to Cut the State Budget

By Jacqueline Rabe

www.ctmirror.org

While leaders of the General Assembly struggle—so far unsuccessfully-to close a half-billion dollar gap in this year’s state budget, a small group composed mainly of legislators has come up with a series of more modest proposals that could mean long-term savings for the state.

WestportNow.com Image

Now the question is whether the legislature will take the time to act on them while facing nine- and ten-digit deficits over the next several years.

“We’ll see if anything happens,” said Sen. Gayle S. Slossberg, admitting that several of the proposals have failed in previous years.

Holding a list of 51 budget-saving proposals crafted by the Commission on Enhancing Agency Outcomes, Slossberg said, “Many of these are ready to go now. Let’s pass some of these as soon as possible.

Flood Watch Update

The National Weather Service in Upton, N.Y. has issued an updated flood watch for Westport and area through Tuesday afternoon.

An advisory said rain will continue to fall heavy at times today. Another round of heavy rain should then continue into tonight and Tuesday morning.

The rain will gradually taper off Tuesday afternoon into Tuesday night. The potential exists for 3 to 6 inches of rain through Wednesday morning with locally higher amounts possible. The axis of heaviest rainfall is currently forecast to run from the New York City metro area into central Connecticut.

Rainfall of this magnitude combined with nearly saturated soils poses a serious flood threat. As a result significant river and small stream flooding is likely. Urban and basement flooding are also significant threats. Residents should take action to protect property now.
