Notes for Joe

March 18 was a busy evening at the Milo Town Hall !

Dr. Kenneth Woodbury presented the proposal for a Community Development Block Grant by Tammy Trask for Park Place Residential Adult Care. A site plan was shared for its location at 221 West Main Street in Milo. As with past grants, it will be brought to a town meeting for final approval/acceptance at a future date if the application is approved. Meanwhile it is important for citizens to learn as much as possible about the benefits the facility has the potential to bring to our community. I will post more about my view of the benefits when I have a little more information. For now I will point out what has been obvious to me for some time - that as things stand today a significant amount of Milo’s elder care dollars have been supporting institutions in other communities and having minimal benefit to Milo citizens. Our workers have traveled to work at these sites. Milo families have been burdened with traveling, and with the related costs of time and money, to visit their loved ones. We can do better.

The enactment of the Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) Ordinance is a step in the right direction for helping our citizens by allowing them access to long term, low interest, loans based on their income to debt ratio as opposed to their credit rating. One website says: “This unique program allows residents in towns that have passed a PACE ordinance to get low-interest loans on energy efficiency and renewable energy systems, everything from insulation and caulking to solar hot water and solar electric systems…a home with improvements financed through the PACE program will benefit with improved comfort and reduced fossil fuel energy costs and carbon emissions.” The ordinance becomes effective thirty one days from its passage. Getting a little ahead of myself, it was enacted at the Selectmen’s meeting later on in the evening.

Fireworks ordinances relating to the sale and use of fireworks drew significant public comment from the few persons in attendance. I don’t remember too much controversy over the sales ordinance but the one dealing with the use of fireworks brought a lot of meaningful discussion. It was decided to have a further conversation/meeting and see what could be incorporated or changed in the ordinance to better serve all citizens. A “noise ordinance” may be needed to address concerns. It’s important to realize that thoughtless, dangerous, irresponsible, use of fireworks by people in Milo have necessitated an ordinance. They have hurt fireworks users who are careful, responsible, and considerate by making restrictions necessary to...
