First of all, I would like to congratulate the new alderman for bethel! Bethel really needed new ones that will stand up for what is right. No matter who is mayor and who is alderman there will be disagreements but if everyone will stand up for what's right and do what's best for bethel, we as a town can get it back together. We are what makes the town what it is. Let's stop being the joke and make our town the best! No more fighting with each other and fight for bethel!

Other than promising to be honest,fair what are some the campaign promises each made? What about city collections as water/sewer? Were there any votes cast from citizens not living in Bethel? What will the new bethel board do to raise more revnue?

Murry hill, that's a good question to ask the board. I'm sure they would be glad to answer any questions that you have or anyone else for that matter, as long as everyone does it in a way everyone can get along. That's part of making the town better by asking questions and coming up with a solution.

We the people would like to say we are so proud of these new alderman & hope to make a change, even if it is a small change. Erin will probably tell the truth when all is done. Debroah & Kay will lie till the end. Good luck & we the people are with you new ones.

Sorry but sherry can't make all the decisions. Yes I'm very glad she is now on the board but that's just it, it takes the board. They all have to get along and do what's best for the town.

Well I suppose it depends upon your expectations for Bethel Springs. I commend the City council for eliminating the Police Dept. but far more is needed and I really don't see great change of any kind in the future.

Bethel Springs was a bustling little town at one time. It had a general store where nearly evrythimg could be purchased several gas stations a several other busy establishments where one could find an array of goods. Even the Post Office will soon meet it's demise as the Postal Service continues to reduce waste and downsize.

Now Bethel Springs is a residential area and really has no need for a City Government. The fact that there is one is an affront to the good people of Bethel. Nothing goes on in Bethel Springs that could not be handled without a city government.

City Hall should be abolished plain and simple. There is no city for which a City Government is needed. No need for these stuffed shirts to convene in city hall every week pretending their importance.

Abolish City Hall and unincorporate now !
Please Unincoporate

I was happy to sign the petition. I was hopeful to make a change. You are correct in saying there is nothing left of Bethel except a City Hall. Well, there is a Dollar General on the by pass but I don't see how one Dollar General can provide the funds necessary to fund a city hall and all the city employees.

UNINCORPORATE and let the county have it.
Sorry

Sheriff,s dept does, then Steve can watch Bethel from his house. Mayor has made it plain to us that sheriff dept. goingto take good care of us, but I would hate to count on that. I don,t think they need a police up here that have to pay alot of money ,but need one, & what paper says about 30,000 is bull shit. Mayor said that, but she hadn,t told truth yet so why would anyone think that, the truth.Cut Burney to 5.00 an hour instead of 10.50 & turn him loose.
