Carl P. Fortuna, Jr., Chairman
Old Saybrook Board of Finance
54 Pennywise La
Old Saybrook CT 06475

Dear Chairman Fortuna:

Re Old Saybrook's budget, $36.6m, down $229k (Harbor News 5May11 "Deeper Cuts Moderate Tax Rate Rise").

The Town is spending $42,171,200 on its Wastewater Management District (WWMD), only $10m of which is covered by a Clean Water grant.

How is it possible that the Town budget is smaller this year?
                             Very truly yours,

                             Joel R. Anderson
