The New Milford Town Council has voted to replace Sewer Commission member Mike Bensema. He will be replaced by John Wittmann. The request came from Mayor David Gronbach, who said Bensema served longer than the town ordinance-set four years. He said the town knew for months that he served more years than outlined in the ordinance, but didn't act until he wrote a letter to the editor of the New Milford Spectrum critical of Gronbach. Wittman's term will end in November 2019.
