Senior Center Survey to Be Expanded

By .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

After receiving slightly more than 200 responses on a survey about using the Westport Center for Senior Activities, the Senior Center Long-Range Planning Committee plans to change the survey before it is sent to more than 4,000 senior citizens in late April.

The committee reviewed the initial results today of the survey that was distributed to seniors at various community organizations and in a local newspaper.

The committee received 209 responses, of which 115 use the senior center and 85 do not.

Those who responded also generally preferred weekday programming at the center over weekend, and also do not have transportation problems.

Landon: Don’t Seek Restoration

By .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

Westport Schools Superintendent Elliott Landon is recommending the Board of Education not seek restoration of the $1 million cut from its proposed 2006-07 budget, according to a memo released today.

The board will discuss Landon’s recommendation during its meeting Monday at 8 p.m. in Bedford Middle School.

Last Monday the Board of Finance cut the funds from the proposal saying the cut should be made to the insurance fund. The finance board will hold its restoration hearing on Wednesday.

The changes mean the 2006-07 school budget would be $82 million if the Representative Town Meeting gives its final approval in May. It is a 4.3 percent increase over the current budget of $78.6 million.

No one was injured in the 7:30 p.m. blaze that originated in dumped garbage, and was contained to one of the station’s compactor units, according to Assistant Chief Larry Conklin.

On arrival, firefighters found heavy fire in the garbage pit held in check by the building’s deluge sprinkler system, a press release said.

Smoke belched from the building and the initial fire attack crews said there was zero visibility inside the structure, the release said.
