The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has authorized New Milford to have steel removed from the old Century Brass site.  The Contractor that had been selected years ago to demolish the building and remove the steel was terminated, the project rebid, and a new contractor selected.  Costello Demolition tore down the building and the only remnant was the large pile of steel that remained on site.  New Milford officials hope to have that work done over the coming weeks.  The brownfield property could then go back to be a revenue generator for the town.  The town began cleaning it up in 2000, year after it was acquired, under an order from the EPA.
