In compliance with the Town Charter of the Town of New Milford, this Board is publishing the Annual Report of the Town of New Milford, covering the period July 1, 2013 – June 30, 2014 (including both dates).

The complete audit report as rendered by the accounting firm of Mahoney Sabol & Company, LLP, of Glastonbury, Connecticut has been filed in the New Milford Town Clerk’s Office and with the State Tax Commission of Connecticut.

Included in the publication are the reports of various Board, Commissions and Departments of the Town.

Joanne Chapin, Board of Finance Chairwoman

The Annual Budget process began on February 18th when the Mayor presented her recommended budget to the Town Council and Board of Finance. The 2014/15 budget was scrutinized and adjusted by the Town Council and Board of Finance over the next 6-8 weeks before being sent on to the voters. The voting public approved the final budget on May 13th at the first referendum.

The Town has moved forward with the ability to accept credit card payments (MasterCard, Visa & Discover) in some of the government offices. Credit card payments are accepted in the Tax Collector, Youth Agency, Building, Fire Marshal, Parks & Recreation and the Public Works Departments. Additional offices may be added to the credit processing during the upcoming year.

The Housatonic Probate Court, Probate District #44, continues to serve the region well, although restricted by the currently available office space in Town Hall. The Judge has requested additional court space, which is being considered with potential for placement of the Probate Court in the Richmond Center Building at an upcoming date.

The Connecticut Department of Economic Development and Community Development awarded $2.5M to the Town for the demolition and removal of the Century Enterprise Center. This award was well received and very inspiring to the towns’ people, in that it moves the town one-step closer to being able to redevelop this property located in our Industrial Zone.

With the construction of the pump stations completed along southern Route 7, the Sewer Commission reviewed and revised their fee structure for a more business friendly approach to new user hook-up costs.

The Litchfield Crossings Retail Center changed ownership during the course of the year. I am continuing to work with the new owners to encourage increased retailer occupancy in that development. Other areas along Route 7 have seen some changes, including the sale of the Southworth's Car Dealer property just west of Veterans Bridge as well as the opening of DinerLuxe and the demolition of the Schneider Trucking building, making way for a different business.

The new radio system for Emergency Responders and Public Works Personnel was successfully launched in September, after the installation of four new communication site and upgrades to two existing sites. This system provides a safer environment for first responders and the general public while exceeding the 95% coverage area, 95% of the time that was expected. Currently, the system serves almost 100% of the New Milford coverage area, close to 100% of the time. Slight fluctuations in radio coverage can be due to terrain, weather, structural interference and equipment.

The Wellsville Avenue Bridge will be the first bridge rehabilitation in New Milford, under the Local Transportation Capital Improvement Program (LOTCIP), which provides a higher percentage (100%) of funds towards the construction cost.

The Town was awarded a $448,334 STEAP grant for the repair and replacement of the sidewalks on the north side of Bridge Street, from Young’s Field Road to the green. Municipalities with populations under 30,000 are eligible to apply for STEAP grants, administered by the Connecticut Office of Policy and Management.

The State of Connecticut restructured the regional planning agencies and metropolitan planning organizations.

This restructuring affects New Milford and the existence of the Housatonic Valley Council of Elected Officials (HVCEO), which has served as both. After much debate and consideration, HVCEO will be dissolved during a transition period and the Western Connecticut Council of Governments will be formed to serve as the regional planning agency for the newly consolidated Western Connecticut Planning Region. The Western Connecticut Planning Region not serve as New Milford’s metropolitan planning organization (MPO); HVCEO will continue to serve as our MPO for now.

Nature remains an important part of New Milford’s diversity and availability of outdoor recreation. The Young’s Field Riverwalk, and the Bird Sanctuary and Nature Preserve on the west side of the Housatonic River, are undergoing some of the final design stages. Both projects, funded by the GE Restoration Grant, are anticipated to be completed by the end of 2015. Housatonic Valley Association has agreed to oversee the implementation of the Still River Greenway project in the area of the Regional Canine Control Facility on Erickson Road.

The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection offered a competitive round of 50% matching grants to targeted municipalities for the installation of Electric Vehicle Charging Stations. New Milford was awarded a grant and the first electric Vehicle Charging Station was installed on the east side of Main Street, across the street from the Library.
