Members welcome at the Milltown Historical Society!
To all who care,
It has come to my attention that there are laws on the books in Milltown borough which require not only a historic preservation committee but also an official historian. To my knowledge neither is active or exists. However, one official claims on the office Milltown website to be on this committee. He is RICHARD REVOLINSKY who will pending on tomorrow's out come may be our mayor. Being that he is on the Ford Ave redevelopment committee it looks like he has quietly kept this preservation committee in the dark so to advance other agendas.
We need to call on borough council to do their job and get a functional preservation committee going. This will put preservation at the table for all borough planning meetings and allow for greater input on historic matters. It can also help with administrative funding.
Hopefully, at the next borough council meeting on November 18th I will call out the council to do what's right. Anyone in support should be there too.
To the best of my knowledge, Brian Harto is the appointed Milltown Historian, and the head of the Preservation Committee, but I don’t believe it is active. I applied to become a member of that committee about six months ago and was never notified of any subsequent meetings. Let’s get this group moving before it’s too late!
