Milford Borough looks to expand communication with community members
Newly formed communication c
MILFORD — Milford Borough Council has formed a new communication committee to keep residents better informed about borough news, services, and civic events.
This committee will also provide a user-friendly newsletter and surveys for community input into potential future projects and initiatives.
“We have been looking for ways to better communicate with the residents and business owners of the Borough and are grateful that we have a Council member to spearhead this initiative,” said Frank Tarquinio, council president.
The Communication Committee is spearheaded by Councilwoman Katrina Foster, a Milford Borough resident and the owner of several businesses.
“We are excited about being able to have more engagement with the community,” said Foster. “It’s all of our intention to serve the members in the community in the best way that we can, and in my opinion, one of the best ways to do that is to communicate. The digital communication strategy that we are rolling out will certainly open the lines of communication among the Council and the people it serves.”
Newly appointed Councilwoman Nancy Schoenleber, along with Milford Borough resident Granger Greenbaum, are also members of the committee.
In the coming weeks, committee members will hand-deliver postcards to every property in the borough, inviting both residents and non-residents to become part of the new email list. The first email correspondence can be expected the beginning of April. All those that wish to be a part of the community engagement are encouraged to sign up online as soon as possible.
Residents and property owners that want to sign up before receiving the postcard can do so by visiting http://bit.ly/milford-boro and put in your information and select your status as resident or nonresident.
