The New Milford Board of Finance has approved up to $6.5 million for the library renovation proposal. The project could be included on the November ballot. The New Milford Town Council could be called into session next week to move the item to a referendum, with a special meeting on Wednesday for informational purposes. New Milford library has not been renovated since the 1970s. The overall renovation proposal is estimated at $8.5 million. The difference could come from a state grant, library trustees and the Waste Management Fund. The proposal to add 10,000 square feet of usable space features another story built on top of the addition. The library would also be made more accessible.
