New Milford Library committee goes back to drawing board

The New Milford Library Modernization Committee has revised the renovation and expansion plans.  Governor Lamont is freezing state grants as part of his debt diet and an attempt to scale back bonding.  Residents approved $6.5 million for the project last November, coupled with $1 million raised by the Friends of the Library and the $1 million state grant.  The first two rounds of bids came back higher than the approved amount and will be sent out to bid for the 3rd time.  Some of the revisions will be to floor and countertop materials.  The committee is looking to preserve the integrity of the project.  The library has not been updated since the 1970s.  The plan calls for adding a second floor with an outdoor terrace to the existing 1977 addition.  It also makes the library compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
