RTM Approves $500,000 School Window, Door Security

By James Lomuscio

After more than two-and-a-half hours of roundabout debate and motions to postpone, the Representative Town Meeting (RTM) tonight voted 24 to 1 with 1 abstention to approve a Board of Finance-approved school board security request of $500,000.

The money will be used to place special security film manufactured by the 3M Company on all first floor windows and doors this summer at Westport’s eight public schools. The objective is to slow down access to the schools by those who would do harm to children and teachers.

Elio Longo, school business administrator, said the 23,000 square feet of film enveloping all first floor windows and doors would delay the entry time of someone shooting his way in from three seconds to two minutes, enough time for police to respond.

RTM member David Floyd of District 4, who had questioned the “dubiousness of two minutes,” was the lone dissenter, and Peter Knight, who had voted on motions to delay the vote until July 15 and again September, abstained.
