Weston selectmen discuss Old Mill Road, firearms ordinance tonight

GOV-cupolaThe Board of Selectmen is scheduled to meet tonight, Thursday, May 2, and earlier this week the first selectman described the likely agenda as “chock full.”

The meeting is set for 7:30 p.m. in the Meeting Room at town hall.

First Selectman Gayle Weinstein said up for discussion will be a report from the Police Department on improvements that were made to Old Mill Road and what, if any, impact they have had on traffic.

The Police Commission will also be requesting permission to hire an attorney for bargaining with the police union, Ms. Weinstein said, and members of the Building Committee will discuss moving forward with window and door replacement at Weston High School.

Also up for discussion Thursday will be the proposed changes to the town’s firearms ordinance, which now includes the elimination of target practice on private property. Ms. Weinstein said she will be asking the selectmen to hold another public hearing on the ordinance, since the change to target practice regulations is a “significant change” since the last hearing.

Members of the Committee for the Oversight of the Lachat Property plan to update the selectmen on details of its plans to repair and reconstruct the back portion of the Lachat farmhouse and what the next steps are for repairing the roof. They will discuss hiring a landscape architect to create a master plan for the property, as well as how much money is available in the town Lachat maintenance fund and from private donations to the Friends of Lachat.

Ms. Weinstein said she is also excited to talk about a prescription drug program called Pro-Act being offered to all Weston residents through the Connecticut Conference of Municipalities (CCM). The program is free, may be used even by those who already have insurance, and includes discounts on services like vision and dental.

“It’s nice when we can offer our residents something nice,” Ms. Weinstein said.
