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.

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...Read More
