Milton mayor responds to recent crime increase

December 4, 2009

Milton Mayor Don Post said increased community vigilance would improve safety in the wake of recent crimes.

“Basically, the sad thing is this is what’s occurring everywhere throughout Delaware. I think a lot of it is a bad economy producing an increase in crime. The only thing I hope is that Neighborhood Watch will continue to strengthen and to be more diligent,” said Post. He urges residents to increase community awareness.

Milton Police Chief William Phillips said he is considering a police substation or new police station for Shipbuilder’s Village, the residential development where some crimes have arisen.

“Sometime appearance calms the storm,” he said. “In our world, it seems there are fights about three things: sex, drugs and money.”


Drowning in Milton

September 17, 2009

Shipbuilders VillageShipbuilders Village, a residential development in northwest Milton, constantly floods during heavy rains. For five years, residents in the back of the development along Spinnaker often wade to their cars to get to work, or they wake up to find runoff covering their front doorsteps. Milton Mayor Don Post pledged to take care of the problem in a May letter sent to residents. Nothing has been done yet. Now, the Town of Milton is swimming in a legal puddle over obtaining easements to pump the water out of the drowning development.
