The New Milford Town Council has approved the full funding allocation for the Candlewood Lake Authority. Less money than requested was allocated in the spring. The five towns surrounding Candlewood contributes equally to the Lake Authority's budget. If three or more towns reduce their portion, the others can as well. Earlier this year, New Milford and Sherman contributed less than requested, but the other towns approved the full amount and now they must make up the difference. New Milford had paid $70,000, about $9,900 less than requested. Sherman allocated last year's contribution, which was just shy of the increase.
