Schools Security Study to Include Town Hall

Digg Favicon Email Favicon Facebook Favicon LinkedIn Favicon

Westport First Selectman Gordon Joseloff announced today that a school safety study requested by the Board of Education will be expanded to include Town Hall.

“Town Hall is home to the Board of Education offices as well as town offices and it is entirely appropriate that the building be included,” he said.

Joseloff said Board of Education Chairman Elaine Whitney agreed to include Town Hall in its security review which was prompted by the December tragedy in Newtown.

The Board of Finance appropriated $50,000 for the study at its Jan. 2 meeting and the Representative Town Meeting (RTM) is expected to take up the request at its Feb. 5 meeting.

In addition, Joseloff said he has asked Police Chief Dale Call to arrange briefings for town employees at all locations on security precautions.

Today’s announcement followed last week’s arrest of a man at Town Hall who was charged with creating a public disturbance and criminal trespass as well as an incident Tuesday night in which an 86-year-old Westport woman brought a BB gun and ammunition into the RTM meeting debating gun control.
