The Milltown Police announced that Milltown schools will be closed Monday and Tuesday, and the Milltown Senior Center, library and Borough Hall for non-essential personnel will be closed Monday.
Milltown garbage collection has been suspended for Monday and Tuesday.
In addition, the Milltown Fire Department is urging residents to take extra precautions during and after the storm. Milltown Fire Chief Gary Conger reminds residents not to run generators indoors. He also advises residents while the fire department would like to assist in pumping out basements when flooding occurs, they cannot. There are several hazards with using a fire truck to pump out a basement that prevents them from doing so.
Milltown’s Code Enforcement Officer asks residents to please remove all signage, flags and banners and place them indoors. If left outside, these will likely be damaged from the storm and could potentially injure.
Milltown’s Borough Engineer advises there is no longer the need to boil water for those impacted by the Riva Avenue water main break. The bacteria testing indicated that the water is safe.
