Milford Youth Center Utilities to be Covered by Town

The town administrator's proposed budget will cover $27,000 in utilities for the Milford Youth Center.

The will no longer have to raise funds to cover utilities for its building, under a proposed budget change that will go before Annual Town Meeting voters this month.

The $27,000 line item, instead, will be covered under the town expenses, as is the case for all other buildings in Milford operated by the town government.

The amount is based on prior history of utility payments, said Amy Tamagni and Michael Walsh, members of the Milford Youth Commission.

Tamagni and Walsh appeared before the Milford selectmen this week, for a final . Twenty-one findings in the audit, criticizing various financial controls at the center, have been resolved, officials said. The Youth Center is now operating in the black, based on the last financial reporting.

"We're back on track," Tamagni told selectmen.

Selectman Brian Murray said the utilities being covered is fair to the center, because every other town building has its utiities covered by taxpayers.

"You shouldn't be out there with a tin cup trying to keep the building heated," Murray said.
