At the TC meeting Chief Larrabbee stated that cars can't be towed due to the DOJ Consent Decree. Read MoreSo meone asked, "what if a car is blocking my driveway and I can't get out, then can it be towed?". Chief's answer was no. The crowd rebutted with comments that towing is done in New Haven, New York, Boston, etc. Chief's answer is that we are not New Haven, New York or Boston. Well I certainly agree with the chief on that point - We are East Haven and we are a great town! I find it hard to believe that any consent decree would prohibit police from taking simple, legitimate action against people who choose to break the law. Towing an illegally parked vehicle is not a discriminatory action and the punishment fits the crime. There are so many simple, low/no cost solutions to this problem. Residents need to get their pass from Town Hall by showing proof of residency. Increase signage and/or painted lines on the streets (why not use people requiring public service hours to do the painting?) Signage should state either no parking from May 15 - Sept 15 or Permit Parking only. If a resident was having guests, they can get one day passes from Town Hall in advance. Hiring constables from May - Sept to patrol and write tickets would reduce the burden on our officers. And by all means, increase the cost of a ticket! All of these means need to be investigated and decided upon NOW so a firm plan will be in place for next season.

Good to know that i can park wherever i want and that the "tickets" that are issued in EH Read Moreand not submitted to the state so my registration won't be effected so pretty much it's a free for all with once again no penalties for bad behavior. If you think East Haven is a great town you are delusional and this is a town run by idiots who can;t figure out one of the easiest of task of safe and fair parking for it's residents.

Here we go, blame the DOJ and the decree. As we all said, that will be the excuse for the next 4Read Moreyea rs for any problem...... For a police chief to say they can't tow a car obstructing someone's driveway is beyond asinine. In 67 pages of the DOJ decree this is nowhere I can find... East Haven PD own towing policy and procedures (approved by the DOJ) actually state in part. 9. Any vehicle ticketed to be towed for a parking violation but which has not been hoisted shall be returned to the person in custody of the vehicle, without charge, provided no other circumstances, e.g. a driver’s intoxication, prohibit such action. And Bridget, trust me, I work in New Haven, and there are many problems with the Zone parking. Its also city wide, Especially during the summer and around Holidays.Many people end up with tickets for attending cookouts etc. If there's a mechanism put in place that the property owner can attest the ticketed person was their guest via mail or other avenue of minimal inconvenience I think would be beneficial.

But I guess it's OK to cook a cat.

I am very surprised to hear this. Over the years I have had nothing but fantastic experiences withRead MoreG oody's. I have still yet to go into Home Depot as i prefer to support a long standing local business. Not that it makes your experience ok, but, everyone has a bad day. Hopefully, Goodys will get your business back and proved thats not how they operate.

I was taken aback as well George. I discovered Goody's 14 years ago after moving to East Haven.Read MoreWhat a great hardware store. Plenty of people there to help you and it was very rare they didn't have what you needed. I too avoid big box stores because I like to back local businesses. I've never had to return anything all these years but the first time I do, I get treated like this. I wish them well.
