By MyFM's Rick Michaels - The Milford Board of Selectmen will meet tonight to discuss a letter sent to the Town Administrator, from the town’s State Representative, regarding a proposed state gas tax increase and Milford’s Police Chief will seek the approval of the creation of a K-9 Unit for the Milford Police Department. State Representative Brian Murray, in a letter to the Board, is responding to Selectmen urging him to vote against the proposed gas tax increase. Representative Murray says the five-cent gas tax hike, is one of four proposed revenue streams, contained in legislation relative to transportation improvements of which the Board is not opposed to the other revenue sources. Murray also pointing out the second part of the major transportation infrastructure improvement initiative an $18.28 Billion bond bill, increases funding for local road and bridge projects and improvements for the MWRTA, that serves Milford. The Board will also be officially asked to review and approve, bringing back a K-9 Unit for Patrol services and as an Investigatory tool. Milford Police Chief Michael Pighetti says the town had a K-9 Unit, that was disbanded in 2005 and says it was proved to be a great asset to the department and the community.
