  • Whether the town should appropriate $10,000 to upgrade its website
  • A decision regarding the use of Hurlbutt's North House

Moment of silence

Weston will be participating in a moment of silence at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, as per the request of Gov. Dannel Malloy, according to a press release sent out by Judy Devito. 

"We invite all residents to join with town officials and our local religious leaders at St. Francis of Assisi at 9:15 a.m. for a brief ceremony, followed by the ringing of bells 26 times during that moment in honor of each life that was taken at Sandy Hook Elementary School," the release says.

With the horrific tragedy of Sandy on everyone's mind and heavy in all of our hearts, I would like to raise a question in hopes of distracting our attention to something easier to talk about for a moment. $10,000 to upgrade a website? I am no computer wiz, but couldn't we pay the local high school computer prodigy $100 to do the same work? Is this where my tax dollars go? No wonder we are heading for the fiscal cliff with both feet on the gas pedal. -Signed Grizzled Veteran of the Porkbarrel spending, broken tax system
