Bethel plans to purchase land

The Bethel Village Council presented its first reading of a new ordinance that, if adopted, could lead to the construction of a new municipal building for the village.

Ordinance 1545, presented May 22, called for the authorization for village administrator Michael Shiverski to move forward in the execution of a contract to purchase three plots of land in the city block on which the current municipal building is located, essentially making the entire block from behind the Plane Street storefronts the property of the village.
