Bethel IGA seeks restitution for power outage

The Bethel IGA is seeking restitution for damages caused by a recent power outage they allege was prolonged by a Bethel public utilities worker.

The outage occurred on the night of Sept. 19 when a transformer feeding the store malfunctioned.

IGA co-owner Charlie Collins told Bethel Village Council Monday, Sept. 27 that the Bethel utility department was notified immediately when the power went out and a utility worker responded to the scene.
