Concessions at Compo Beach, Longshore Pavilion and Longshore Halfway House
Parks and Recreation Director Jennifer Fava announced today that Joey’s By The Shore will no longer be operating the concessions at Compo Beach, Longshore Pavilion and the Longshore Halfway House, effective immediately.
Ms. Fava stated, “Regrettably, Mr. Romeo has advised us that he will not pay the full rent due in 2019 under his lease, nor is he willing to fulfill his remaining three years under the lease. We have made every effort to negotiate mutually acceptable terms, but we have not reached an agreement with him.”
First Selectman, Jim Marpe stated, “We appreciate the many years of service Joey has provided to the community, especially at Compo Beach, providing food for our beach goers and jobs for some of our young adults. We will be working to get a new concessionaire in place to meet the needs of our residents and users.”
