The Westport Representative Town Meeting (RTM) tonight initially by unanimous vote—and then with one member opposed—approved an appropriation of $150,000 to help clear up a backlog of building permits that led the town to seek a one-year postponement in implementing its controversial 2003 property assessment.
Several moments after the vote Helmut Krause, District 5, infomed the secretary he wished to go on record as opposed to the appropriation.
There was no objection to his request by his fellow members, who had to approve a change of vote after the fact. That changed the vote to 31-1 for approval.
