Milford Town Board to work on budget 

MILFORD — The Milford Town Board has scheduled will meet in a special session at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 27,  at the Milford Town Hall in Portlandville. The 2022 budget workshop will continue and the board will consider any other business that needs to be addressed.

Pair’s challenge drawing to close

Friends Dan Buttermann and Danny Lapin have partnered again in a friendly fundraising challenge to raise support for Friends of Recovery for Delaware and Otsego Counties and Madison County Council on Alcoholism and Substance Abuse, which goes by the name Bridges.

The fundraising challenge will end Oct. 30, and the results will be announced the next day on Facebook Live.

According to a media release, a similar challenge held earlier in the year benefited Clear Path for Veterans and Opportunities for Otsego when more than $4,000 was raised.

“The staff at these organizations, along with many volunteers, work every day for the benefit of our communities. Helping them in turn helps us all,” Buttermann said in the release.

“Our friendly competition works like the ice bucket challenge and the polar plunge — we aim to raise support and have a fun ending to the challenge. Last time, Dan won and got to pour icy water on my head, so I hope to return the favor this time,” added Lapin.
