GREENWICH - A yearlong controversy in Greenwich over a mooring that some say is blocking boat traffic is no closer to being over.

A meeting held Tuesday between the harbormaster and the Greenwich police chief ended with the decision to leave the mooring in place. The harbormaster says the mooring, which is located at the mouth of Indian Harbor, is blocking the waterway and making it difficult for boaters to navigate around it. He sent a notice to the owner who maintains he's within his rights to leave the mooring where it is.

The police chief says the harbormaster needs to shore up protocols about the managing of moorings before anything can be done.

Despite support from First Selectman Peter Tesei to remove it, the mooring is here to stay.
