Letter to the Editor: Not Supporting BOE Budget Restoration

To the Editor:

Last year at this time those of us trying to restore the school budget from cuts had over 1,000 signatures on their petition. By the end of the successful campaign we had over 2,300 names. 

The community helped to secure a successful, but rare, super majority vote at the RTM. The margin was two votes. Our arguments included having a new superintendent, keeping head count flat, and a modest 2 percent increase in the cost per student. RTM Education and Finance Committees unanimously recommended restoration.

A year later — I stood up in the Board of Finance this week, and supported the motion to reduce the 2018/19 schools budget by $2,050,000. It passed. The Board Of Education (BOE) will be discussing its next steps on Monday. Will they ask for a restoration?

This year I will not be supporting any restoration request. Others might.

At Medical Marijuana Hearings, Amendment’s Intent Becomes Focus

By James Lomuscio

Intent versus specific language regulating where medical marijuana dispensaries came be established came under scrutiny as Westport’s Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) stared down four applications Thursday night.

P&Z text amendment 735 approved last June allows no more than two medical marijuana dispensaries in commercial districts and states that such retail outlets be 1,000 feet from public areas, including churches, schools and town and state buildings.

Eric D. Bernheim, attorney representing Acreage Connecticut, LLC that wants to open a dispensary at 1505 Post Road East, which is less than 1,000 from Kidville at 1572 Post Road East and Zaniac, a K-8 science and math enrichment school at 1391 Post Road East, argued they are technically not schools.

“Kidville does not meet the definition of a school,” Burnheim said. “Neither are listed as non-public schools. They’re categorized as retail. No special permit exists that they are schools.”

Connecticut House Passes Bipartisan Pay-Equity Bill

By Mark Pazniokas and Clarence Silber

www.ctmirror.org

The House of Representatives today overwhelming approved a bipartisan pay-equity bill that would place Connecticut in the small but growing ranks of states that bar employers from asking applicants about their pay history.

It now goes to the Senate, where a similar measure died last year without a vote.

House Majority Leader Matt Ritter, D-Hartford, said the political environment for acting has only grown more favorable since last year, ensuring passage again in the House.

The Senate is seen as unlikely to block passage in an election year when every legislative seat is up for election.

The Westport Tree Board has scheduled two, free sapling distributions, one on Arbor Day, Wednesday, April 25, and another on Westport Green Day, Saturday, April 28, town officials announced today.

The fifth annual sapling giveaway is funded by a donation from Eversource Energy. Bagged saplings include: sweetgums; sugar maples; lilacs; and Norway spruce and white spruce trees, all of which contain planting instructions on the bag.

On Arbor Day saplings will be distributed in front of Town Hall from 2 to 5 p.m., unless construction on Myrtle Avenue warrants detour from front driveway. 

Additional saplings will be handed out on Green Day at the town’s Lillian Wadsworth Arboretum, 2 Woodside Lane, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Officials said visitors are encouraged to walk the trails and learn about trees on the 12-acre, open space property managed by the tree warden and Tree Board.

Comings & Goings: Riverside Barber Returns to Saugatuck

WestportNow.com Image
Riverside Barber, one of the oldest barber shops in Westport, is returning to Saugatuck. Since 2016, it has been at 231 Post Road West, above Greg & Tony salon. Ita 500-square foot new space at 1 Treadwell Ave. has recently been occupied by Westport Florist. Last year, Riverside Barber celebrated the 90th anniversary of its 1927 founding on Riverside Avenue in Saugatuck by John Santella. He was followed by his son Lou Santella and then owned by Pat Vigilio since November 1999 when he relocated the business to Post Road West. Vigilio recently retired and relocated to Florida, according to current owner Tammy Stefanidis. She said she worked for Vigilio for seven years until 2006 and then spent the past 10 years as a homemaker raising her family. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) WestportNow.com photo

Police Seek to Include Private Schools on School Alerts

In the event of a school lockdown or other emergency in one of the Westport Public Schools, all schools within the system receive alerts and updates.

But private schools in town do not.

Today the Westport Police Department announced it will be compiling a notification database for all private schools in the event of any school-related emergency.

“Ideally this database would include private schools, day care facilities, religious education programs and similar institutions,” Lt. Anthony Prezioso said.

Finance Board Cuts Education Budget by $2,050,000

The Westport Board of Finance tonight voted for a $2,050,000 cut in the Board of Education budget and approved a total school and municipal budget of $207,703,868, representing a 1.3 percent increase over the current year.

The Board of Education will have an opportunity to return next week to seek any restoration in the cut, which was approved 6-1 (Lee Caney opposed). It then moves next month to the Representative Town Meeting (RTM), the town’s 36-member legislative body.

The board had presented a proposed budget of $118,223,800, or a 3.36 percent increase.

The Board of Finance action followed word from Superintendent of Schools Colleen Palmer that cost savings of $1.3 million to $1.5 million would be achieved by the school bargaining units joining the state health plan.

A Quiet Finale for the GOP Gubernatorial Road Show

By Mark Pazniokas

www.ctmirror.org

New Canaan — The fifth and final episode of a road show produced by Connecticut Republicans and starring an evolving cast of gubernatorial contenders came to an end tonight without resolving a key plot point: Is the GOP any closer to settling on a front runner?

WestportNow.com Image

With nine candidates on stage and a cumulative limit of 12 minutes allotted to each to answer questions, Republicans in the audience could only get a sampling of the personalities and policies of the politicians whose next task is to compete for the support of the 1,100 delegates to the GOP nominating convention.

“Someone on the stage is going to be our nominee,” Republican State Chairman J.R. Romano said after the nine delivered closing messages to a crowd at Saxe Middle School that was dotted with delegates to the two-day convention that opens May 11 at Foxwoods Resort Casino.

New Britain Mayor Erin Stewart, a late entrant into the race, might disagree. Falling short of the $175,000 mark in campaign contributions required for an invitation, Stewart was absent. Bob Stefanowski, a former business executive who intends to bypass the convention and petition for a spot on the primary ballot in August, has skipped all five forums.

Boucher Will Seek Reelection in 26th District

State Sen. Toni Boucher announced today she will seek reelection in the 26th District, which includes Westport, and end her exploratory bid for the Republican nomination for governor.

Boucher had gotten little traction in her exploratory bid but did announce she had almost $98,000 on hand as of April 1. She made a similar exploration in 2014, then ran for re-election.

She said she would be able to transfer a portion to her reelection campaign and qualify for state funding.

Boucher’s decision was not unexpected. Her fundraising had lagged, falling short of $15,000 in the most recent quarter. Her total fundraising of $97,465 fell far short of the minimum to participate in all but the first two of the five GOP gubernatorial forums.

Bakery Breaks Down Equipment after Bolt Found in School Muffin

The vendor that made the Westport middle school chocolate chip muffin in which a one-inch steel bolt was discovered is breaking down its mixing equipment to determine which machine it came from, Schools Superintendent Colleen Palmer said.

“They will report their findings to us,” Palmer said about the vendor, which she did not identify, in an email sent to parents Monday.

Meanwhile, she said, “Until this issue is fully resolved, all muffins will be sourced from another bakery.”

The bolt was discovered by a Coleytown Middle School (CMS) seventh grader who had purchased the muffin the CMS cafeteria, Palmer said.

Granger at the Movies: ‘A Quiet Place,’ ‘Rampage,’ ‘Beirut’

By Susan Granger

Special to WestportNow

Some moviegoers absolutely love to be scared, frightened out of their wits. If so, the dystopian horror thriller “A Quiet Place” is for you.

WestportNow.com Image

Emily Blunt and her husband John Krasinski play Evelyn and Lee Abbott, a married couple, living on a secluded farm in upstate New York. It’s Day 89 — after most of the civilized world has been decimated by an alien invasion of hideously hungry creatures who detect their prey by supersensitive sound.

Knowing that silence is absolutely essential to survival, the Abbotts are determined to protect their three young children: Beau (Cade Woodward), Regan (Millicent Smmonds) and Marcus (Noah Jupe).

Regan is deaf, so they communicate primarily through sign language with only occasional whispers. And when — just for an instant — their vigilance fails, tragedy occurs.

United Methodist to Host ‘Climate Reality’ Talk Sunday, Earth Day

On Sunday — Earth Day — the United Methodist Church of Westport and Weston will host a “Climate Reality” presentation by Westporter Dawn Henry at 11 a.m., church officials announced.

At United Methodist at 49 Weston Road, Henry will discuss practical ways individuals can address climate change challenges, church official said.

Henry is one of 17,000 volunteers worldwide trained by former Vice President Al Gore to educate the public about climate change, the announcement said. Founded by Gore, the Climate Reality Project examines causes of global climate change and what can be done to address them.

“With 195 countries signing the historic Paris Agreement to cut greenhouse gases, the world is finally united in working to seize the promise of renewable resources and create a safe, sustainable and prosperous future powered by clean energy,” the announcement said.

New AG Opinion a Blow to Tribes’ East Windsor Casino

By Mark Pazniokas

www.ctmirror.org

Attorney General George Jepsen today strongly warned the legislature against allowing the Mashantucket Pequot and Mohegan tribes to jointly develop a casino in East Windsor without the approval of the U.S. Interior Department.

The approval was a condition of a 2017 law permitting the project to compete with MGM Springfield.

The opinion is likely to be the final blow in this legislative session to any hopes by the tribes to circumvent the requirement for Interior Department approval.

In a formal opinion sought by House Speaker Joe Aresimowicz, Jepsen said his office still views approval by the Interior Department of amendments to the state’s gaming compacts and memoranda of understanding with the tribes as necessary to guarantee the new project would not jeopardize Connecticut’s existing revenue-sharing arrangement with them.

Real Estate Report: Plenty to be Grateful For

By Judy Szablak

Special to WestportNow

There is plenty to be grateful for in Westport’s real estate market.

WestportNow.com Image
Featured Home: This home at 2 Mimi Lane is listed at $1,795,000. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Photo courtesy of William Pitt Sotheby’s-Westport

Inventory is up over 5 percent from last week, there were 14 single-family homes that closed, and 15 homes entered varying stages of deposits in the last seven days.

It is true that the average and median home prices have declined recently, however one must take into account the inventory that those figures represent. In other words, there just happens to be more inventory available in lower price pockets.

Lower inventory prices do not necessarily indicate a decline in overall value. When the inventory ranges and corresponding sales are higher, the average and median prices will be reflective.
