Cooling Places Established for Thursday, June 28th

Due to the anticipated dangerously hot temperatures on Thursday, June 28, 2012, the City of Milton has established temporary cooling places for people who need to seek shelter and/or relief from the heat on June 28, 2012.

The City’s Council Chambers and the Milton Public Library will be open to residents as locations to seek relief from the extreme heat and stay cool. Both the Council Chambers and the Milton Public Library are located in the Shaw Municipal Center, 430 E. High Street. Another place to seek relief from the heat during the high temperatures in the City of Milton is The Gathering Place, 715 Campus Street. All locations are air conditioned, and will remain open during normally scheduled hours of operation to accommodate those who need and/or seek temporary relief from the heat. No overnight lodging is available at any of these established locations.

We are encouraging individuals to limit their time outside in the anticipated extreme heat to only that which is necessary and that people and their pets stay adequately hydrated throughout what is anticipated to be a very warm day.
