RTM Approves $350,000 for New Police Boat

By James Lomuscio

Westport’s identity as a shoreline community took center stage at tonight’s Representative Town Meeting (RTM) session, first with an update from from the Compo Beach Site Improvement Committee, next the unanimous approval of $350,000 for a new police boat.

The Police Department appropriation request made by Chief Dale Call—and already approved by the Board of Finance—was the RTM’s only agenda item.

Call said the funds would go to replacing the current 1998 Boston Whaler Marine 1, which, despite its age, has remained on call year round, fielding 400 calls annually, more than eight during harsh winter months.

He said the new boat that the department plans to buy will be more durable with an aluminum hull instead of the current fiberglass one, and that it has an expected 20-year life span.
