Milford Technology Advisory Council
Like many civic groups in Milford, the Milford Technology Advisory Council has been quietly helping Milford for years, fixing up computers for social agencies and working with the United Way to give personal computers to those who cannot afford them.
On Tuesday at 4 p.m., a spotlight will be shone on the humble members of the Advisory Council. A 'cable-cutting' ceremony will take place right by the flag pole to announce the new Free WiFi on the Milford Green, said Council member Augie Harrigan.
They noted that Mayor Ben Blake had a great hand in getting this project off the ground, as well as the work of sponsors.
