Like all Westporters, Bruno Donatti and his wife love Compo.
In fact, they love it so much, they run 2.2 miles from their place to the beach — with a stroller and baby on board.
It’s nice exercise, and keeps them in shape.
Of course, they’d be there more often if they had a beach sticker.
The reason they don’t is because they are Westporters during the day only. They own 2 fantastic businesses: Winfield Street Italian Deli, just over the Post Road bridge (formerly Art’s), and Winfield Street Coffee, across from the train station.
Bruno and his staff are fully invested in Westport. They donate to every good cause. They’re part of the community. Their customers love them.
So Bruno — who lives with his wife and baby in Stamford — has a good question.
“Should a business owner like me be allowed a beach sticker? I pay property taxes on all of my equipment to the town.”
He’s looking to buy a house in town. But moving here is not easy.
What do you think, “06880” readers? Should business owners be allowed to buy a beach sticker at the Westport rate? Or at a special discounted price? Click “Comments” below.
And when you’re done, head to either of Winfield’s locations. They’re worth a detour from anywhere — even the beach.
