RTM Approves $200,000 for Classroom Locks

By James Lomuscio

By a vote of 28 to 0 with 1 abstention, Westport’s Representative Town Meeting (RTM) tonight approved a $200,000 Board of Education request for the installation of 1,425 high security, classroom locks recommended by Kroll Security, Inc. in response to concerns generated by the Newtown school shootings nearly a year-and-a-half ago.

According to Jack Klinge, who spoke on behalf of the RTM’s Education and Finance committees that unanimously recommended the appropriation, the $200,000 from the Capital and Nonrecurring Budget would be offset by a $40,000 state grant. Klinge said that the installation of the locks would begin this summer.

“This is our first hardware security measure district wide,” said Elio Longo, school business administrator, adding that other requests would be forthcoming.

RTM member Diane Cady, who represents District 1, abstained. Cady said earlier that she was “troubled with how long this has taken,” and expressed concern about front and side entrances.
