Carl P. Fortuna Jr., First Selectman
Town of Old Saybrook
302 Main Street
Old Saybrook CT 06475-2384
This is a FOIA request for 1 WWMD document:
Dear First Selectman Fortuna:
One copy please of the document recording the vote of the
electors to the effect that "persons who receive the benefit
of a new septic system pay more."
The vote that was taken at referendum stands, was
not challenged and therefore it remains unlikely
that the funding mechanism will be changed. The
entire Town is paying for a portion of this project.
The persons who receive the benefit of a new septic
system pay more.
- Carl P. Fortuna, Jr. 30Apr13, to Conkling 24Apr13
Referendum of 11Aug09:
2. "Shall the Town of Old Saybrook appropriate
$42,171,200 for the design and construction of
Decentralized Wastewater management Systems within
the Decentralized Wastewater Management District and
issue the Town's Bonds, Notes or other obligations
in an amount not to exceed $42,171,200 to finance
said appropriation, and provide ongoing funding of
administrative costs for the systems?"
YES = 1691 NO = 1062
Mr Fortuna, contrary to the implication in your letter of
30Apr13 to John Conkling, no one is asking that the funding
be changed. Rather, WWMD owners want know if the Town will
honor the commitment made by the affirmative vote on
referendum Question 2: Yes or No?
The document I'm seeking is the document reversing the will
of the people at referendum.
Very truly yours,
Joel R. Anderson
