Lifelong Westport resident Will Birnie said after tonight’s Blight Control Board meeting that “the Town of Westport has been very tolerant of me,“and he welcomed a Sept. 5 deadline to begin cleaning up his property.
“I know I don’t fit the Westport mold today,” said Birnie, 65, sporting a long, backwoods beard right out of the television’s “Duck Dynasty” series.
He admits that a lot of new residents do not understand him, nor appreciate his two-acre residence at 11 Edgemarth Hill Road in the Greens Farms area. The private road off Greens Farms Road is dotted with numerous homes with well-kept lawns.
They don’t like the refrigerator in the driveway, one that is visible from the road. Nor the three unregistered vehicles in the driveway, not to mention seven other vehicles in the woods.
