The water pumping station proposed for South Street in Bethel is moving forward.
At a special town meeting recently in Bethel, residents voted to approve an allocation for the new South Street Pump Station. The $308,000 appropriation would come from the town's unreserved fund balance and reimbursed through a future Bond Anticipation Note sale with payment of the BAN to be made by the water account users of the Bethel Public Utilities Commission.
The funding includes a 10-percent contingency and covers contracting services for the site work. The meeting was held Tuesday at the Municipal Center.
