 REMINDER FOR TONIGHT’S TOWN MEETINGS

There will be two town meetings this evening at the Bethel High School Track & Field training center, main floor.

Your participation at these meetings is extremely important. Last year, under Governor Lamont’s executive orders, towns in Connecticut were prohibited from holding town meetings and budget referendums. Towns like Bethel were forced to have only their Board of Finance approve their town budgets, with no opportunity for members of the community to vote.

This year we are scheduling a safe, socially distanced meeting venue to allow voters to exercise their right to vote on the town budget. All registered voters are encouraged to participate.

Please attend and observe the following:

  • All attendees will be required to wear masks at all times.
  • Seating will be spaced apart to maintain proper distancing.
  • PLEASE WEAR ONLY SNEAKERS OR SOFT-SOLED SHOES to protect the floor of the facility.
  • Please use only the lower main floor entrance, the one near the back parking lot of the high school.

Meeting content:

  • At 6:30pm, a special town meeting to consider leasing solar panels for Rockwell, Johnson and the Track & Field training facility.
  • At 7:00pm, the annual town meeting on the fiscal year 2021-2022 town and school budgets.
