WestportNow Teardown of the Day: 2 Keyser Road

WestportNow.com Image
An application for a permit to demolish the house at Westport’s 2 Keyser Road, at the corner of Imperial Avenue, is in process. Built in 1947, the 1-1/2 story cape has 1,637-square feet, is situated on a .34-acre property and last changed ownership in January, 2016 for $920,000. 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

In his career, Penna, 47, headed the detective bureau, and still as deputy chief oversees Westport EMS, building maintenance, internal affairs, public affairs, animal control, the training division and information management.

“Deputy Chief Penna takes with him a great deal of experience and knowledge,” said Chief Foti Koskinas. “We worked together for many years.  We came up through the ranks together, navigated through difficult times and shared countless laughs.

“He’ll certainly be missed by the men and women that worked with him,” he added. “We all wish him the best in his retirement.”

Route 136 Resurfacing Set for October

Motorists will encounter new traffic patterns next month as Westport’s Route 136 from the Post Road East-Compo Road South intersection all the way to the William F. Cribari Bridge to Charles Street is scheduled for resurfacing.

Public Works Director Stephen Edwards said the Connecticut Department of Transportation (CDOT) project is expected to take one week from Wednesday, Oct. 18, through Wednesday, Oct. 25.

He added that CDOT officials told town officials during a preconstruction meeting that the intention is to commence work at 8 p.m. and to work continuously until 5 a.m. Edwards said traffic patterns will be set up each night beginning at 7:30.

The 2.14-mile section of road handles an average daily traffic count of 8,800 vehicles, Edwards said.

GOP, Dems Both Lack Solution to CT’s Cycle of Budget Deficits

By Keith M. Phaneuf

www.ctmirror.org

Despite their many disagreements over how the next state budget should look, Republican and Democratic legislators have one key element in common.

Neither of their respective plans would spare Connecticut from grappling with another massive budget deficit two years from now.

The legislature’s nonpartisan Office of Fiscal Analysis says the two-year budget crafted by Republican legislators and passed in the House and Senate late last week would balance the state’s books this fiscal year and next — wiping out a $3.5 billion deficit in the process.

But that same plan, unless adjusted, would run $3.31 billion in the red between 2019 and 2021.
