Following Governor Baker’s reopening plan for the Commonwealth of MA, the Board of Selectmen announce Milford Town Hall will open to the public effective July 6, 2020. To ensure the safety and well-being of employees and the public, a number of changes have been implemented, which include social distancing and PPE requirements, building capacity limitations, enhanced cleaning protocols, and new processes for all who enter Town Hall.
We strongly recommend that residents continue to conduct their business with Town Hall employees remotely, where possible, as the new restrictions may make on-site visits more challenging and time-consuming.
New processes and procedures include the following:
Entrance to the Town Hall will only be through the lower level on the Court St. side of the building. Here you will be asked to sign in, should contact tracing be required in the future.
To help maintain the building capacity limitations in place, we ask the public to restrict the number of people in their group when they come to Town Hall.
Please continue to use the drop box for all written correspondence with Town Hall offices. The drop box can be found on the N. Bow St. side of the building. A second drop box is planned to be added on the Court St. side of the building. In addition, we recommend using phone and e-mail to communicate with Town Hall employees when possible.
Many departments will now require appointments scheduled in advance to help us maintain compliance with the building capacity limitations still in place. All residents are encouraged to call the department prior to coming to Town Hall to ensure there is an available time to meet with employees, and to schedule appointments. Phone numbers can be found on the Town website at https://www.milfordma.gov/
We have installed “teller” windows in a number of offices. Residents will be asked to remain in the hallway while completing business to minimize direct contact.
Social distancing will be enforced and a limited number of people may be allowed in the building at any one time. Inside the building, social distancing markers will be placed on the floor in the common areas. Please be sure to follow the guidelines.
Masks are required when entering Town Hall.
Please do not come to Town Hall if you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, or if you have been exposed to an individual who has tested positive for coronavirus.
We are working diligently to make the reopening as smooth as possible, but we know there may be some unexpected circumstances we have not prepared for. We appreciate the public’s patience and understanding as we continue to fine-tune our new way of working.
