Last night concerned citizens crowded into the Welles-Turner Memorial Library in Glastonbury to talk about options for saving the historic Glastonbury-Rocky Hill Ferry during a roundtable discussion hosted by State Representative Prasad Srinivasan.
Dating back to 1650, it is the oldest running ferry in the nation but is now facing extinction due to the state’s terrible fiscal situation and impending budget cuts.
Srinivasan was joined at the meeting by various town officials including Richard Johnson, Town Manager of Glastonbury, Susan Karp, Chairman of the Glastonbury Town Council and Jim Bennett, Chairman of the Glastonbury Historic Society. The panel expressed their commitment to keeping the ferry running.
