With 25 percent of Milford still without power, Mayor Ben Blake has met with United Illuminating to tell the utility company to do more.
He recently sat down with the company’s director of municipalities to stress the frustration of hundreds without power.
"I know UI is making every effort it can to restore power to its customers but it must do more," Blake said in a written statement. "The time for planning is long behind us. We need answers and we need results now."
UI pledged to bring down the outage rate to 16 percent by the end of today and five percent by the end of Sunday.
In order to accomplish this, UI agreed to increase the number of utility workers on the ground in Milford and extend work shifts to sixteen hours, according to a press release issued by the mayor’s office.
