Selectmen Reject New License for Westport Auto Dealership


COMING UP IN JUST A FEW MINUTES. (HE) MORE LOCAL COVERAGE NOW. AN AUTO DEALERSHIP IN WESTPORT THAT WAS RECENTLY HIT WITH A CIVIL COMPLAINT FROM THE MASSACHUSETTS ATTORNEY GENERAL — MAY NOT BE ABLE TO SELL CARS AFTER JANUARY FIRST. TOWN OFFICIALS TELL US — SELECTMEN VOTED LAST NIGHT TO REJECT F-AND-R AUTO SALES’ 2017 LICENSE. HOWEVER, WE’RE TOLD THE DEALERSHIP COULD GET A PROVISIONAL LICENSE ON JANUARY NINTH. THAT’S IF THEY WORK WITH THE ATTORNEY GENERAL AND THE TOWN ADMINISTRATOR TO ADDRESS THE COMPLAINTS. THEY MUST ALSO TELL SELECTMEN IN A -QUOTE- “QUANTIATIVE AND QUALITATIVE WAY” HOW THEY’VE IMPROVED THEIR BUSINESS PRACTICES. AS WE REPORTED IN SEPTEMBER, THE A-G’S OFFICE ACCUSES F-AND-R AUTO OF SELLING UNSAFE…UNRELIABLE CARS. THE OWNER OF THE DEALERSHIP DENIED THOSE CHARGES IN AN INTERVIEW WITH TARGET 12 CONSUMER INVESTIGATOR SUSAN CAMPBELL. THE DEALERSHIP MADE NATIONAL HEADLINES LAST YEAR, WHEN A VIDEO — SHOWING A WORKER BERATING A PIZZA DELIVERY DRIVER OVER A TIP — WENT VIRAL.
