MILFORD — Mayor Ben Blake has announced the launch of Milford’s official Facebook page titled “Milford CT City Hall.” Although a “soft launch” of the page has been posted for several weeks, Tuesday, Jan. 1, marked the formal release of the City’s latest communication tool.

“Because we are increasingly turning to social media, this page will offer yet another means to enhance transparency and provide more timely and constant information for the people of Milford,” said Blake.

According to Blake, “We’ll be posting community news, press releases, storm news, events and general happenings. What’s especially nice about this communication tool is that I can sit down any time, day or night, and post local updates to share with the people of Milford.”

The mayor encourages residents to log onto Facebook and “Like” the www.facebook.com/MilfordCityHall page. He advises that residents should not be confused by other, like-named Facebook pages such as “Milford, CT” which are not pages associated with the City.
