As temperatures drop in Bethel, a grassroots organization is opening a shelter to provide a safe and warm place to the city’s homeless. The Bethel Winter House will be open every night from December 24th through the three coldest months of the year.
The Bethel City council has taken the first step towards boosting water and sewer rates. A memorandum passed last night that directs city staff to draft ordinances that raise rates up to cover their costs. This is just the start of the process, the council will take another look at the rate adjustments before finalizing any changes.
