Milltown keeps pool open, faces power emergency
Residents in Milltown are being forced to make decisions on what they'll do to beat the heat.
Town officials declared a power emergency after a transformer blew up on the Fourth of July. They say to reduce a risk of a brownout, they've asked residents to reduce the use of their air conditioners and other appliances.
Instead of air conditioning, another alternative has been offered to beat the heat. The town's public pool has extended hours late into the night to help residents stay cool.
The assistant night manager at the Milltown Pool, Steve O'Connell, says that those that stayed at the pool will be much cooler throughout the night since their body temperatures would be lowered.
