On August 11, 2009, Old Saybrook residents will be asked to cast their ballots for the establishment of a Wastewater Management District.... The program is not intended to be onerous.

Dear Chairman Wehrly:

Re Old Saybrook WPCA's "The Lion King" (movie) delusion: "Everything the light touches is our kingdom."
Important! While the WPCA is happy to demonstrate the upgrade process, it is imperative that residents do not approach a construction site and the contractor's vehicles or equipment. The police are notified when and where the WPCA is working and will ensure that residents can pass safely and are respecting the boundaries and equipment.

The police came to my house.

What law permits the WPCA to circumscribe the public's right to innocent passage on a public street by creating a no-trespassing zone around WPCA-contractor equipment parked in the right-of-way?

Spare me self-serving moralizing about the safety of the public. There's a fleet of lawn-men with their equipment traveling Old Saybrook that all have so far managed to navigate safely without your having to call the police.

I expect to hear from your lawyer regarding your blatant attempt to limit citizen oversight of the expenditure of public money. Ask him to suggest reasons why I shouldn't sue you for violating my civil rights.
                             Very truly yours,

                             Joel R. Anderson
