Bethel Library Elevator Update
Library Elevator update: the repair is scheduled for October 19th and should take one day and then the State needs to inspect before the elevator can be back in service. We are hoping it is up and running by October 23. Stay tuned!
We mentioned a few weeks ago that a nationally recognized company that provides safety consulting worldwide will help our fire departments assess their operations in comparison to industry standards and best practices, and also aid them in preparing for the future. The team is in town this weekend! Our departments are proving they are living up to the rigorous national standards!
Electric Car Charging at Train Stations No Longer Free October 15
If you charge your electric car at the old and new train stations, be aware that the charging will no longer be free on October 15th.
