A Facelift for Former Save the Children Home

WestportNow.com Image
The building at 54 Wilton Road, former home of Save the Children, is getting a facelift, according to developer David Waldman, one of the owners. He said workers are removing the “exterior skins” from the center section. A new middle section will then be created that will house the lobby of the new building. He said the construction is an “adaptive re-use” since the internal support structure remains. Future regulatory hearings will address the disposition of the remainder of the existing structure, Waldman said. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

State Employees Ratify Concessions by Wide Margin

Unionized state employees have overwhelmingly approved a $1.57 billion package of concessions over two years, providing major savings to help close the state budget gap.

The focus now shifts to a closely divided General Assembly, where Republicans say they will attempt to reject the agreement.

The State Employees Bargain Agent Coalition announced that more than 80 percent of the votes cast were in favor of accepting concessions that will freeze wages and increase contributions for health and pensions.

Bargaining units representing state police troopers and assistant attorneys general did not vote on the wage concessions.

She has held top posts with New York City’s Bloomberg administration from 2004 to 2013. She served in the Big Apple’s Office of Management and Budget (OMB) managing more than $2 billion in city revenue.

In 2014, she became chief of staff for the city’s Department of Parks & Recreation’s Capital Division. There she oversaw a staff of about 400 responsible for the design and construction of all parkland projects.

In 2015, she returned the OMB, focusing on financial efficiencies and whether money was being well spent in different governmental areas.

Malloy Recognizes his Budget Proposal is $121M Out of Balance

By Keith M. Phaneuf

www.ctmirror.org

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has said repeatedly that all of the budgets legislative caucuses have proposed are so flawed he would veto them.

But the Malloy administration conceded this week that there are some holes in the governor’s budget as well — worth more than $120 million.

The $40.6 billion, two-year budget Malloy unveiled on May 15 effectively assumes $46.7 million in labor savings in the first year and $74.5 million in the second that the administration now acknowledges it can’t achieve — at least as originally planned.

Why? Because those cost-saving measures — which largely involve reducing staff and closing and consolidating facilities — would require layoffs that would be prohibited for four years under the concessions deal pending before state employee unions.

House, Senate Democrats Unable to Agree on Provisional Budget

By Keith M. Phaneuf

www.ctmirror.org

Connecticut’s prospects of enacting a state budget — even a provisional one — before the new fiscal year begins July 1 appeared to slip away late Monday night as House and Senate Democrats were unable to agree on a path forward.

After closed-door talks between House and Senate Democrats bogged down over several issues, including a potential sales tax hike and labor concessions, House Speaker Joe Aresimowicz of Berlin, notified his fellow Democrats they should not expect to vote on a provisional budget Thursday.

The speaker had asked Democrats, who hold a slim 79-72 edge in the House, to hold open Thursday for a possible budget vote.

Aresimowicz refused to discuss details of the negotiations, but he confirmed today that he doesn’t anticipate a budget vote at this time.

An employee today confirmed a longtime rumor that the Nike Running store, 69 Main St., will close by end of 2017. The employee said the Nike trend now is to limit retail locations to “outlets and large cities.” The store opened in November 2011 and suffered severe flooding during Super Storm Sandy in 2012. One local real estate source estimated there are now 10 vacancies or availabilities in the Main Street area, one of the highest such rates in recent years.

Cities, Towns Ask State Leaders in TV Ad, ‘Are You Listening?’

By Keith M. Phaneuf

www.ctmirror.org

The Connecticut Conference of Municipalities is pressing state officials to deliver a budget that protects cities and towns, unveiling a television commercial today that suggests the legislature’s inaction could cost people their homes.

The 30-second spot, which will air through the rest of the month on network affiliates and Cable News 12 in Fairfield County, urges officials to revisit a state budget stabilization plan local leaders developed back in January.

The ad mingles concerns raised by unnamed home and business owners with responses from municipal leaders, who drew contrasts of responsive local officials with deadlocked legislators.

“High property taxes are going to cause me to lose my home,” one woman says as the ad opens. A second asks “Why can’t government be more efficient?”

Without a CT Budget by July 1, the Options Are All Bad

By Keith M. Phaneuf

www.ctmirror.org

For more than 100 years, Connecticut has periodically grappled with what to do when the fiscal year begins and a new budget is not in place to greet it.

But with just 15 days left in the outgoing fiscal year — and a $2.3 billion deficit looming after that — gridlocked legislators’ inability to adopt a new budget has huge repercussions across a wide spectrum.

Big question marks already hang over some social services for children, the poor and disabled, as well as certain aid to cities and towns.

And Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, who has warned legislators for several weeks now not to force him to run the state without a new budget in place, already has said he considers that option a “worst-case scenario,” and that legislators should as well.

Westport No. 3 in CT Electric Vehicles

Electric vehicles (EVs) finally are making some headway in Connecticut with Westport having the third highest number of them behind Greenwich and Stamford.

WestportNow.com Image

The figures, compiled by the Westport Electric Car Club (WECC) following a Freedom of Information request by member Bruce Becker to the Department of Motor Vehicles, were released today.

Greenwich was No. 1 in the state with 429 registered EVs, Stamford was No. 2 with 233, and Westport No. 3 with 217, the club said.

In all, there are 4,636 EVs registered in the state—not a large number but significant considering “a decade ago there was nothing,” said Barry Kresch, spokesman for the WECC.

Years Behind Other States, Rules for Uber, Lyft Win Final Passage

By Kyle Constable

www.ctmirror.org

The Senate voted 28-8 tonight to approve a bill that would make Connecticut one of the last states to impose standards on ride-sharing companies like Uber and Lyft.

The bill now heads to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy after facing what proved to be its last two close calls — a pair of Republican-backed amendments in the Senate.

With the legislature’s upper chamber evenly divided between Democratic and Republican members, both proposed amendments ended in a deadlock, leaving Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman to cast tiebreaking votes. She opposed both amendments, probably keeping the bill from stalling for another year.

Had the Republican amendments passed, the bill would have had to go back to the House of Representatives with little more than 24 hours remaining in the legislative session — a death sentence for most legislation.

House Inches CT Closer to Tolls — But Stops Short

By Keith M. Phaneuf

www.ctmirror.org

The House of Representatives took two steps today — one legal and one symbolic — to move Connecticut slightly closer to the imposition of tolls on its highways.

The House narrowly approved a resolution to establish a constitutional “lockbox” amendment to safeguard revenues earmarked for transportation. Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has said he would not consider any discussion of tolls unless a lockbox amendment is sent before voters on the 2018 statewide ballot.

The House also debated a bill directing the Department of Transportation to craft a plan to establish tolls. But it tabled the measure — in a prearranged, bipartisan deal — after 110 minutes of debate.

The question of tolling is not expected to be taken up again before the regular 2017 General Assembly adjourns Wednesday, though some supporters hope it will remain in talks during the summer special session to resolve the next two-year state budget.

Analyses Show Concessions Would Save $24B Over Two Decades

By Keith M. Phaneuf

www.ctmirror.org

The tentative concessions framework struck by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and state employee union leaders would save $4.8 billion over the next five years and $24.1 billion over the next two decades, according to analyses prepared by the administration, Connecticut pension actuaries and its healthcare consultant.

If the concessions deal is ratified, the $1.57 billion annual contribution to the state employees’ pension would rise steadily and peak at just under $1.9 billion in 2022. It would remain at that level through 2031, according to a pension analysis by Cavanaugh Macdonald Consulting of Kennesaw, Ga.

That’s $460 million less than the peak payment Connecticut otherwise would face based on the restructured pension schedule Malloy and unions agreed to back in January.

Connecticut’s worst-funded benefit program — retirement health care — would see its long-term, unfunded liability shrink by one-quarter dropping from $20.9 billion to $15.6 billion, according to an analysis prepared by Segal Consulting of Farmington.

Hearst Buys Westport Minuteman

UPDATE Hearst, publisher of the Westport News, announced today it has acquired the Westport and Fairfield Minuteman.

Acquisition of the Westport newspaper was part of a deal in which Hearst said it had purchased three daily and eight weekly newspapers and their accompanying websites from Digital First Media, including the New Haven Register and Connecticut Magazine.

No sale price was disclosed, and it was not clear from the announcement whether the Minuteman, published Thursdays, will continue as a separate publication. A source at the newspaper said staffers have not been informed about the newspaper’s future.

The Minuteman published as usual on Thursday, but the issue made no mention of the sale of the newspaper.

House Passes Plan to Let Towns Adjust Tax Bills

By Keith M. Phaneuf

www.ctmirror.org

The House of Representatives today unanimously approved a bill to help cities and towns adjust their property tax bills as the state’s budget crisis plays out in the coming weeks or months.

The measure, which now heads to the Senate, would allow communities to more easily revise tax bills to reflect changes in state aid ordered later this year.

The product of a compromise between House Speaker Joe Aresimowicz, D-Berlin, and House Minority Leader Themis Klarides, R-Derby, the bill comes three months after another measure to offer communities budget flexibility bogged down in the Senate amid a partisan dispute.

The two leaders say they and their colleagues have been pressed constantly by municipal leaders for more guidance about how much aid their communities can expect from the state over the next two fiscal years.

Connecticut Joins Alliance Committed to Paris Climate Accord

By Mark Pazniokas

www.ctmirror.org

Connecticut became one of the early states to rebuke President Trump’s disavowal of the Paris climate accord with a decision today by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy to join a fast-growing coalition of states, cities, businesses and universities intent on ensuring the U.S. still acts to reduce greenhouse gases.

Malloy, the chairman of the Democratic Governors Association, joins the Democratic governors of California, New York and Washington state in the United States Climate Alliance, a group quickly organized Thursday by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and others in the wake of Trump’s announcement the U.S. would stand apart from the world’s nations on the issue of climate change.

Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, a Republican who declined to support Trump or attend the Republican National Convention, signed on later today, according to the Boston Globe.

The decision was an easy one for a governor in Connecticut, a state with a long history of bipartisan support of efforts to reduce greenhouse gases. Gina McCarthy, a top advisor to the Obama administration on the issue, was the state’s top environmental regulator under Malloy’s predecessor, Republican M. Jodi Rell.
