Awash in controversy, damaged Southport Beach stand hauled to Westport

A day before the demolition deadline, the owner of the former Southport Beach concession stand moved the Superstorm Sandy-damaged building during a busy Sunday afternoon at the beach.
It didn't go far, however.
The shack is now sitting behind a low stone wall at a Beachside Avenue home in Westport, just over the town line from Fairfield. Spray painted on the front are the words "Demolition" and "town of Farfield" (sic), along with Monday's date. Building and public works officials both said their departments had not marked the building.
Hunter King, owner of King's Kitchen, the concessionnaire at Southport Beach, had purchased the building from the town for $450 after officials decided not to rebuild the food stands at either Sasco or Southport beaches. Both suffered serious damage during Sandy last October. READ MORE: http://www.fairfieldcitizenonline.com/news/article/Awash-in-controversy-damaged-Southport-Beach-4726367.php
