Such an expensive fuss over one tiny road

To the editor:

Congratulations to Westport Selectman Michael Sullivan for his clarification about what is going on in terms of the expansion of Beach Avenue.

He questioned why it has required so much attention, time and expense when it only represents “one tenth of one percent of the town’s roads.” It’s clear to us taxpayers that it represents an extraordinary and growing expense against a limited budget especially when you consider how little attention is given to line painting, snowplowing, salting icy roads and general road repair on the other 99.9 percent.

Paving Beach Avenue appears to be a poor allocation of limited resources.

Support Selectmen Michael Sullivan, Craig Dutra and Steven Ouellette and their wise

responsible votes against further foolishness.
