Selectmen Meet November 14th

Volunteers needed to serve on Community Center Viability Committee...

Selectmen Wednesday night modified fees charged for alcoholic beverage license holders. While three categories were increased, all alcohol restaurant/club fees decreased by $2000 and veterans organizations and wine and malt package stores remained the same. All alcohol package stores will now pay $2,500, an increase of $500 per year. Wine and malt restaurants increased $250 per year to $1,500 and one-day alcohol licenses increased by $25 to $50. The local VFW Post has publicly announced that they will not be renewing their club license for the ensuing year.

In housekeeping business the board signed papers for the Water Pollution Abatement Loan which was approved by residents at the recent town meeting in the amount of 2.5 million dollars. The loan will provide monies for work on Well #4 in the Braggville section of town. Holiday display requests by the Shabad of Milford were approved for a menorah on the lawn at Town Hall and also a request by the Lion's Club for downtown tree lighting. Selectmen signed a solid waste fee commitment in the amount of $431,500. The board also signed a Arts Council State Contract.

Selectmen are requesting volunteers for an envisioned seven-member Community Center Viability Committee. Selectman Kevin Conley told fellow board members that 10 or 11 residents have already approached him with a willingness to serve on the committee. Selectmen have hinted at a previous meeting that they are unwilling to continue to expend monies on the local Senior Center which they noted Wednesday night does not have enough parking space. Board member Jay Leary is hoping the new committee will come up with an "unencumbered wish list". Chairman Jay Marsden wishes the committee will look at what other towns have. The town's debt is expected to begin falling in 2021. Interested residents wishing to serve on the committee have until November 28th to submit letters of interest to the Selectmen's Office at 703 Washington Street.

Selectmen recieved the resignation of James Carbino from the Auxilary Police Department with regret. Mark Ahronian also resigned from the town's Economic Development Committee. The board thanked Ahronian for his service to the town calling him a "Perennial Superstar".
