Important Notice to Westbrook Residents
The Board of Selectmen, after careful review with many individuals, voted NOT TO HAVE A TOWNWIDE REFERENDUM on next year’s municipal budget, including the school’s budget (July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2017).
The rationale for this decision is that in the last 4 years, the number of individuals who voted on the budget has decreased and in 2015, only 245 voters chose to vote on the Budget Referendum.
Accordingly, at the May 11, 2016, 7:00 p.m., Annual Town Meeting, there will be a vote by all present to vote on the budget rather than refer the budget to a Referendum.
A “Citizen’s Guide” to the Budget was mailed to all Westbrook residents and highlights all of the salient features of both the town and the school budgets. This information is presented in very straightforward terms and we encourage you to read this “Guide” and to attend the May 11th budget meeting to either approve or disapprove the 2016/17 budget.
Your municipal government, the Board of Education and all of our respective departments and employees have spent months preparing, deliberating and finalizing a budget for your review. We encourage all of you to be present at the May 11th meeting.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or e-mail me (860-399-3040, firstname.lastname@example.org).

An Ordinance to Amend the Code of the Town of Westbrook
This Chapter is enacted pursuant to the Municipal Powers Act (Sec. 7-148, et seq) of the State of Connecticut General Statutes. It is hereby found and declared that there may exist within the Town of Westbrook a number of real properties, which are vacant and/or in a blighted condition, whose continued existence may contribute to the decline of properties and neighborhoods. It is further found that the existence of such properties adversely affects the economic well-being of the Town and is inimical to the health, safety, and welfare of its residents. This Chapter is sensitive to the private property rights of the citizens of Westbrook and to extenuating circumstances due to age, disability, and citizens’ economic situations.
