Voting on a town referendum is no different from voting for public office, however along with registered voters, Bethel property owners may also vote for the Road Renewal Plan. Below are simple guidelines to vote on the referendum:
- Voters will vote "yes" or "no" on the following question: "Shall the Town of Bethel appropriate the sum of Two Million ($2,000,000.00) Dollars to fund and approve the Road Renewal Plan Project and to finance the same through borrowing, the issuance of bonds and/or notes, including those of a temporary nature."
Polls will be open today from 6 a.m to 8 p.m.
For each district, there is a specific polling location:
District 1: Clifford J. Hurgin Municipal Center, 1 School Street
District 2: Stony Hill Fire House, 59 Stony Hill Road
District 3: Frank A. Berry School, 200 Whittlesey Drive
District 4: Clifford J. Hurgin Municipal Center, 1 School Street
District 5: Frank A. Berry School, 200 Whittlesey Drive
After months of political theater and grandstanding by the usual suspects, the residents of Bethel will finally have their say on the matter of fixing the roads. The only bad part is that residents will have to go through this nightmare next year as this proposal over covers Phase I of the overall plan.
