As if Westport’s Martha Stewart doesn’t have enough problems, today she got one more town employees picked up the rocks she and her neighbors had placed in front of their homes to discourage parking and to protect their roadside grassy areas.

“I got orders from my boss to pick them up and that’s what I did,” said Scott Sullivan, superintendent of the Highway Division in the Department of Public Works.
Sullivan, whose boss, Public Works Director Stephen Edwards is on vacation, said the town acted after publication of a letter July 21 in the Westport News complaining that the rocks along Turkey Hill Road South were a danger to cars, pedestrians, bicyclists, and snowplows.
A neighbor tipped off Stewart—who was not at home at the time—to what was happening and she called the town attorney’s office to complain, according to a Town Hall source. Her stones had reportedly been imported from her property in Bedford, N.Y.
