Article 23 Passes at Town Meeting: Pilot Program Bus Service Approved

Last night Town Meeting voted to approve Article 23, which will allow the Town of Milford to enter into a one-year contract with the MetroWest Regional Transit Authority (MWRTA) to provide fixed-loop bus service in Milford on week days.

Although Citizens for Milford had hoped that Town Meeting would defer the vote until the fall, we appreciate the creative efforts of the Board of Selectmen and of Representative Fernandes to dramatically reduce Milford’s financial obligation for the first-year pilot program. In conjunction with the CHNA grant, Milford’s obligation has been reduced from $250,000 to only $50,000. We also appreciate the Board’s plan to review progress of the pilot program at regular intervals.
