Milford's Geriatric Authority has been promised support by the city's selectmen in its bid to renovate the town's senior center with a low-interest loan, officials said.
"We're doing a major renovation and we're $500,000 short," said Barry Chiler of the Geriatric Authority. "So we're trying to get the town to borrow the money for us because they can get it at a cheaper rate."
The money would help with some upgrades like reconfiguring bedrooms, enlarging living room and dining room areas and adding a rehabilitation gym.
The board unanimously voted to accept the Geriatric Authority's request to borrow $500,000 to complete the renovation project and for a 20-year suspension of its payments to the town in lieu of taxes, said William Buckley, chairman of the Board of Selectmen.
