WestportNow Teardown of the Day: 14 Westport Ave.

WestportNow.com Image
An application for a permit to demolish the house at Westport’s 14 Westport Ave., in the Compo Beach section, is in process. Built in 1932, the two-story conventional has 1,400-square feet, is situated on a .11-acre property and changed ownership in July 2016 for $1,250,000. Because the house was built more than 50 years ago, the application will be reviewed by the Westport Historic District Commission. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

GOP Leader Decries House Push for a Monday Vote on Union Deal

By Keith M. Phaneuf

www.ctmirror.org

While legislative voting on the proposed union concessions deal could begin Monday, the top Republican in the Senate said the House Democratic leadership was irresponsibly rushing action on a crucial agreement.

Legislators must be at the Capitol on Monday for a constitutionally mandated, one-day session to consider overriding measures vetoed this year by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy.

“We will finalize decisions on any potential veto override votes at our caucus meeting Monday, as well as discuss the labor concession agreement, which we expect to vote on later that day,” House Speaker Joe Aresimowicz, D-Berlin, wrote in a statement.

But while Senate President Pro Tem Martin M. Looney, D-New Haven, also scheduled a vote, he’s waiting until July 31 to accommodate lawmakers awaiting more information on the deal.

Expensive Office Furniture Gets Crushed

WestportNow.com Image
UPDATE Workers at 320 Post Road West today destroy expensive office furniture removed from the offices of Morgan Stanley in connection with the company’s move to 500 Post Road East. Westport attorney Ken Bernhard, who snapped this photo, said he was told by the workers they needed to have the offices “broom clean” by day’s end. Bernhard sent an email to Morgan Stanley saying he understood a similar furniture disposal operation would take place at its Nyala Farms office complex next week and urging the company instead to donate to nonprofits. He also made available a copy of an email from a consultant to Morgan Stanley Administration which said: “We already have all furniture scheduled to be liquidated/sold. We cannot stop what’s scheduled and being performed now. Movers will continue with their work as planned.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Ken Bernhard for WestportNow.com
