Miscommunication or stubborness

What Danbury Mayor Boughton called "little miscommunication", Ridgefield First Selectman Rudy Marconi called something that almost required legal action. At issue is the ongoing drama surrounding the Danbury Airport.

Can't we all just get along?

From the Danbury News Times
Marconi said Wednesday he was frustrated in his attempts to communicate with Boughton regarding issues surrounding Danbury Municipal Airport.

He felt it might be necessary to bring in legal counsel to get Boughton to produce documents and answer questions about plans to install beacon lights and top trees along the runway path that aims directly toward the Ridegbury section of town.

"There was a little miscommunication about what Rudy was looking for," Boughton said Friday after a call from a reporter prompted him to call Marconi "Some of that information was hand-delivered to his office this afternoon."

Marconi said he grew frustrated when he tried to obtain a master plan for the airport when it was discovered the Ridgefield Library's copy was missing. When he tried to get a threshold study on the proposed placement of beacons, airport administrator Paul Estefan told him the study would cost $4.50 a copy.

"That's not the neighborly way to do things," Marconi said. "I would never respond that way to a request from Danbury for documents."


For years, Ridgefield residents have complained about noise from planes landing and taking off from the Danbury airport. With the city's plan to light that approach, neighbors are worried micro-jets will begin using the airport and use of the flight path over their homes will increase.

You would think that after the theft of a airplane last month that Mayor Boughton would work better with Ridgefield and not "communicate" once someone threatens legal action.
