A town meeting is being held in New Milford tonight about how to spend $1.5 million. The money was slated to close a budget gap created by cuts in state funding, but Mayor Pete Bass says they were able to fill in the hole through savings, layoffs and not filling vacancies. The New Milford Town Council and Board of Finance have been presented with nearly 20 proposals of what the money can now be used for. Among those to be considered by residents are a new fire truck, a pothole-fixing truck and a sidewalk along Patriot’s Way to connect the riverwalk to the downtown. Some personnel decisions will be considered including a new land surveyor and an engineer position. A vehicle and equipment for the surveyor was also proposed. The meeting is at 6:30pm.
