The town of New Milford and the Library will be splitting the cost of needed repairs. The Town Council voted unanimously on Monday to equally share the $70,000 allocation. Mayor David Gronbach says the Library Board initially asked that the town cover the full cost to fix the elevator, which has been out of service. But he says the Investment Trust Account, set up by the New Milford Charter, has $1.5 million. Gronbach says no money has been spent to maintain the Library in recent memory from that account, including to fix a leak that was plaguing the basement. The Library was looking to save money to invest in technology and to hold for a possible expansion.
