The New Milford Town Council saw schematic design work for Library Modernization this week. The Phase 1 artist rendering was presented at their meeting. Mayor David Gronbach says the Council voted to authorize $217,000 in funds from the Waste Management Settlement Account for design development. Gronbach says New Milford Library ranks 127 out 156 libraries statewide per capita. He says the original expansion, without building up, was estimated at $21 million in 2004. The current proposal is $7.5 million.
