New Milford Mayor Officially Lays Down the Law Regarding Lynn Deming Park
Recently, we told you about the problems that cropped up over the Forth of July Holiday with over crowding at New Milford's Lynn Deming Park due to an invasion of non residents. Now Mayor Pete Bass has laid down the law with some strict guidelines.
