State Agencies Offer More Painful Budget Cuts

By Jacqueline Rabe Thomas and Arielle Levin Becker

www.ctmirror.org

Some DMV offices could close. Housing subsidies for those with AIDS could be cut. And hundreds more state jobs could be eliminated by privatizing services for people with intellectual or developmental disabilities.

Residents could have to pay more for a state police background check on a potential employee or babysitter, and nursing homes found to present an imminent danger could be fined $10,000 instead of the current $5,000.

The fire department at Southbury Training School, which serves people with intellectual or developmental disabilities, is proposed for elimination to save $1.6 million.

These are just some of the options for making cuts and generating revenue that state agencies have offered Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s budget office as it prepares a 2017-18 budget proposal to put before legislators.

Town’s Holiday Giving Program Underway

Westport Human Services Director Sarah Heath announced today that her department will again sponsor its annual Holiday Giving Program for Westport residents.   

“Over the years, the generosity of volunteer donors has made the holidays brighter for hundreds of children, families and seniors in our town,” said Heath.

“We hope that Westporters will continue to support their neighbors, as our department continues to see residents coping with foreclosures, layoffs and reduced work hours.”

Following established guidelines for Westport Warm-Up Fund eligibility, the Human Services Department serves largely as a facilitator, allowing Westport residents who wish to give to do so, while protecting the confidentiality of both the donor and receiver.

A Special Touchdown

WestportNow.com Image
It was a special night tonight for Dylan Curran, 16, a special needs student at Staples High School, where he is freshman football team manager. During the halftime break in a freshman home game against Greenwich, teammates gave a suited-up Dylan the football and he scored a touchdown, much to the delight of all who watched. It was a highlight for the Wreckers, who fell to Greenwich 34-13. Dylan had a similar special experience a year ago as a student at Bedford Middle School.
