I want to express my thanks, on behalf of the entire council and all the residents, to the first responders. In some cases that was the Police, Fire, Ambulance, Police Auxiliary or your neighbor. New MIlford has always been the community that pulls together. We are resilient and we will recover from this. It will take time and patience.
Our first goal is to make sure everyone is safe. No one has been injured, or worse, and for that we are blessed. The second goal is to restore power to all. That may take some time. Please be prepared to be out of power for a week. We hope it will be shorter, but you should be prepared for longer.
Even though we still have communication problems in the Borough, and not everyone has internet all the time, we have been able to get information out on New Milford Patch as one way to keep our residents informed on what is going on.
I find my phones and internet are working at times, and at times it seems like I am cut off. The Borough server is still not operating, so I am working from my firstname.lastname@example.org address for anyone who needs to reach me.
Mayor Ann Subrizi
