The Town of Westport today sold $6.99 million of 20-year general obligation bonds at a rate of 1.9 percent, described as a “highly favorable” rate.

Low bidder on the sale approved by a special meeting of the town’s Bond Committee and Board of Selectmen was FTN Capital Markets, a bank dealer and a division of First Tennessee Bank, NA, Memphis, Tenn. Its bid was 1.905283 percent with a $153,452 premium.
