New Milford to borrow $15M to repair roads, roofs. These streets, buildings are first on the list

The town plans to borrow up to $10 million to repair roads and up to $5 million to fix roofs on several schools and municipal buildings over the next few years. By June 30, 2024, the town aims to repair Candlewood Lake Road North, Buckingham Road, Big Bear Hill Road and Little Bear Hill Road, officials said. That work will cost around $2.5 million. For roof repair, Hill & Plain and Northville Elementary Schools are on the list. The road work involves chip sealing, milling and putting new gravel down on dirt roads. It will begin when the asphalt plants open at the end of March, said Mayor Pete Bass, adding everything in regard to outside work is weather dependent. Bass said the roofs on Hill & Plain and Northville Elementary Schools are at the end of their life. He said roofs typically have a life span of 20 years.
