During the public comment period of the March 19 East Bethel City Council meeting, resident Greg Bayard asked for clarification on the previous year’s significant city- and school-tax increases. He said they were evident from his increased house payment and wanted to know if the increase had been a “one-time deal” or would happen again.
The East Bethel City Council talked about dirt bike noise in a March 19 workshop, ultimately deciding to hold a public hearing 7 p.m. April 23 at City Hall before making decisions or taking actions. The members acknowledged the meeting might be packed or could be pointless, but they at least needed to try to get residents’ input.
The East Bethel City Council Feb. 19 selected Tim Harrington to fill its vacant seat after interviewing three candidates.
