The New Milford High School roof will be replaced sooner than expected, in part because of damage from the May macroburst.  Mayor Pete Bass told the Board of Finance on Wednesday that the roof is losing shingles and is leaking.  $200,000 is needed to patch the roof until it can be replaced, repaid by the town's insurance company.  Dates for the work weren't immediately decided.  Bass plans to present a timeline and costs to the Boards of Ed and Finance as well as the Town Council once the details have been worked out.  Those details include whether to add solar panels, have a metal roof or asphalt--like it is now.
