Yesterday, residents of Bethel overwhelmingly approved the much debated 2 million dollar road renewal plan.
Over one thousand residents came out to vote on the package with 732 (73 percent) approving the plan while 249 (27 percent) voted in disapproval. With the passage, road repair will finally start in Bethel next year on a priority basis.
From last night, here's video of the reading of the voting totals.
After the vote, I had a chance to interview Bethel First Selectman Matt Knickerbocker and talk to him about the passage of the proposal.
