On Wednesday, May 27 at a Special Council meeting, Council approved Greer Galloway, our Engineering consultant, to proceed with issuing the RFP for the reconstruction of Bedford St. The proposed schedule begins the work from Concession St to George St after July 1 and from George St to Main St after August 1. Construction will continue until October/November depending on weather. Bedford St will generally be open to traffic throughout the construction and there will be access to businesses and residents’ driveways.

On April 2, 2020, I declared an Emergency that remains in effect. However two of the orders made under that declaration are not being extended.

Emergency Order #1 will not be extended. Effective June 1, 2020 garbage bag tags/Westport garbage bags will be required for solid waste pick up.

Emergency Order #2 will not be extended. Effective Wednesday, June 3, Westport Town Hall will reopen to the public for mornings only until further notice. One person at a time will be admitted to Town Hall. The staff area of Town Hall has plastic sneeze guards installed, so you will notice a slightly different look should you find it necessary to come to the office.

Please call if you have any concerns or questions. 273-9195
