Beach sticker hike suggested over bridge cost

WESTPORT — It had plenty of strong opinions, but the Board of Finance decided to take no action on a request from Peter Ratkiewich, director of the Department of Public Works, on a $62,000 appropriation for design plans for the bridge on Cavalry Road on the Westport/Weston line.

For years the bridge, which the state inspectors deemed in need of repair, has been a sore point between the two towns because of disagreements over how much of the cost each municipality should burden.

Most recently, First Selectman Jim Marpe reported Weston’s First Selectman Chris Spaulding had not returned his calls relating to the matter, which drew ire from finance board members.
