New Milford Town Council approved purchasing lawn signs encouraging acceptance in town at this week’s Town Council meeting.
The signs will say “No matter where you are from, we’re glad you’re our neighbor,” in Spanish, English and Arabic. The Hate Has No Home Here Group made the request with the hopes of placing them outside of homes and places of worship.
The $250 allocated will purchase about 10 double-sided color signs.
Town Council is also looking into purchasing and installing permanent road signs with the same message.
Each sign will also include a message that says the town paid for the signs to show the town’s support of the message.
