No federal funds available for Milford's South Street project

At Monday’s meeting, the board approved the resolution to obtain the easements on South Street required by law to keep the project moving forward.
A public hearing is scheduled for Monday, July 28, at 6:30 p.m. at Milford Town Hall.
“Everything is ready to go on South Street except there is no federal money,” said Parker.
Cass suggested the town keep moving in case funds are released.
A point of concern is the fact that the South Street project is partially funded by the Transportation Enhancement Fund, which has a late spring 2015 deadline to use those funds. Scaife will look into a deadline extension in case of an inability to obtain federal funds.
In other news, preliminary quotes for the new building at the transfer station were reviewed, and the board discussed whether the building would have public access and if a handicap ramp would be needed.
