arvolynh@millertonnews.com

MILLBROOK — For the past three years the Village Board and Town Board have been working on a Joint Emergency Plan in the event of a major disaster.
“We are not talking snow storms, we are talking about earthquakes, strong tornados, fires of a large degree, long-term draught or a major flood,” said Laura Hurley, village mayor. “I remind everyone this is not a plan that we are going to enact on a whim; if we ever have to enact this it is going to be trouble for all of us.
