NoPo champion Sam Romeo continues to lead fight against paying for sewer installation. “Who asked us if we wanted sewers?” he demanded of FWIW’s Scusie.
“The old cedar bucket works just fine on my rowboat on the Mianus and as you can see,” he said, waving in the direction of his backyard, “we already have all the sanitation system we need here on land. Now excuse me, it’s time to slop the pigs.”
Reached for comment, First Selectman John Tesei acknowledged what he termed “the looser requirements” of NoPo residents but added, “we really have to bring the entire town up to at least Cos Cob standards. It’s expensive and upsetting to folks like Sam, I know, but hey, welcome to the 19th Century.”
