To the editor:
It is my understanding that the state provided the town $676,000 for 2013 routine road maintenance.
At this point, a conservative estimate of what the town has spent on Beach Avenue is around $125,000. It will take a lot more money to “correct unapproved cut and removal of coastal dune,” as the DEP has ordered. It will take even more money to pave the allowed part of the road.
Meanwhile East Beach Road remains in terrible shape, and there are no visible middle or white side lines on many of our main roads. Former Highway Surveyor Jack Sisson is under indictment for unlawfully liquidating town property, larceny, and conspiracy. The town is trying to sell road equipment over EBay. And, Westport is only able to afford a part-time town administrator. The schools are in dire need of repair, general maintenance,
and better equipment. Our municipal buildings are a mess.
Westporters should be mad as hell over the squandering of our municipal and state tax dollars!
