Weston Board of Selectmen Briefs

The Weston Board of Selectmen met for its regular meeting on Thursday, Dec. 6. The following were among the agenda items discussed.


Police Chief John Troxell told the board he has tried to keep an open mind about the possibility of regionalizing emergency dispatch services, but Sandy has changed his thinking.

“My open-mind concept of it suddenly shut down because I felt after experiencing the height of the storm … our dispatch was the nerve center of our emergency response,” Chief Troxell said.

Even though the Wilton dispatch center, which had been under consideration, is only a seven-minute drive, he said, there were times when Weston was cut off enough that “I don’t think that would have been a workable situation for us.”

The chief said he does not believe any towns want to regionalize their emergency services if it means moving outside their town lines. He said he put the question to every police chief he met with, asking, If Weston were to build a brand-new, state-of-the-art dispatch center, would they move there?

“They all said no,” Chief Troxell said. “Nobody wants to give up control and nobody wants to send their people to another town.”

Selectman Dennis Tracey asked whether any towns in Connecticut have successfully combined. First Selectman Gayle Weinstein said the only ones she knows of have populations under 2,000 and/or are part of the resident state trooper program.

“There hasn’t been an example in Connecticut where multiple municipalities have created one brand-new facility,” she said.

Selectman David Muller said, “I see no reason to be ahead of the curve on this one, or to be a guinea pig by being one of the first in the state to try this.” If the state eventually mandates it, the town can react, he said.

Ms. Weinstein said while she usually prefers to be proactive, on this issue, “we’ve faced obstacles at every step,” so she agreed with Mr. Muller.

Police Sgt. Patrick Daubert said if the town upgrades its communications center, there still may be an opportunity to share the space with other agencies, such as Aquarion or Metro-North.


The board unanimously agreed to re-appoint Ray Rauth and Bernadette McGovern to the town’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Committee. Both terms run until Dec. 31, 2014.

Also unanimous was the decision to appoint Lyette Segerdahl to the Beautification Committee. Her term expires June 30, 2016.


First Selectman Gayle Weinstein reported that police Sgt. Mike Ferullo, the town’s emergency management director, completed the paperwork she submitted this month to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for reimbursement of Sandy-related cleanup costs.

Ms. Weinstein said town officials have requested reimbursement within the current fiscal year, which ends June 30, 2013, but she is not sure that will happen.

Sportsperson of the Year

Sibyl Ledwick was officially recognized as the 2012 Weston Sportsperson of the Year. Her name was added to a plaque that hangs at town hall.

Ms. Ledwick, who has served on the boards of the Weston Boosters Club and the Weston Lacrosse Club, was chosen by the Weston Sports Commission. She was instrumental in the creation of the Boosters concession program, and has been described as an advocate, a coach, a fund-raiser, and a mentor.
