Drama at Greenwich council meeting

Heather Chapin-Fowler • Sep 20, 2013 at 6:30 PM

Greenwich Mayor Lowell Etzler came armed to Wednesday’s council meeting with a response to the many accusations resident Larry Risner has leveled against him in the last few months regarding unfair treatment.

Risner wasn’t happy he was ordered by the mayor to remove the driveway he had installed on his property parallel to the street, which is illegal in accordance to a village ordinance.

In other business, just when the Greenwich Fire Chief asked that the dispute over police fees at the fire department’s fundraisers be put to rest, one of his firefighters confronted the village police chief regarding protection at a fundraiser coming up in October.

Another couple visited council with a petition demanding the exclusion of all members of the village over the age of 70 from paying a $15 surcharge on their utility bills.

Council also entered into a contract with an electrical engineering firm to draft a blueprint of the village’s electric system to better service the area which has frequent blips in service.
