New Milford parks will now only be open to New Milford residents. After traveling to various parks over the weekend and seeing that some were overwhelmed, social distancing was non- compliant. Mayor Pete Bass, with support of the Police Chief, Town Attorney and Director of Health, signed an Emergency Order allowing Only New Milford Residents access to the parks. Police will provide additional patrols and check the license plates of the vehicles and photo ID if needed to prove residency. For residents who have a second home in New Milford and may not have ID, Bass says they will be required to have three bills with proof of residency. Violators of the order will be ticketed and towed.
