Sandy 'fair' Saturday provides information for residents
Residents have a lot of questions, and to help answer some of those there will be a Sandy Relief and Recovery Fair Saturday, Nov. 3 and Nov. 10 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Parsons gymnasium, 70 West River Street. Boy Scouts and the Jonathan Law Marching Band are distributing fliers to different areas of the city announcing the fairs.
Also, ready made meals and water are available at Fire Station 6 at the corner of Platt and Melba Streets and Fire Station 8 on Naugatuck Avenue.
Residents who are without power and starting to feel the cold can go to the Milford Senior Center or the Milford Public Library, Mayor Ben Blake said at a press conference Thursday.
The senior center will be open 24/7, and both buildings have power sources for people to charge phones and other devices. The Milford Chamber of Commerce also has invited people in to charge devices.
United Illuminating crews have been increased to 25, meaning there are 65 workers out on the streets trying to restore power.
The mayor said the company’s goal is to have Milford restored 95% by Monday.
“We’ve been in constant contact with our UI liaison,” Blake said, adding that it is a priority to get power restored.
For storm information, residents can call 203-874-6782.
