(July 28, 2022) The Berlin Mayor and Town Council discussed the following during its meeting on Monday:
National Night Out
The council unanimously approved the permit for the annual National Night Out, held by the Berlin Police Department, on Tuesday.
The event at Henry Park on Flower Street will go from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. and include corresponding road closures.
National Night Out is a yearly outreach event held by law enforcement agencies all over the country that helps promote community partnerships within their jurisdictions.
The Berlin rendition will include free food, educational information and other family-friendly diversions for attendees. It is known as one of the biggest National Nights Out in the area.
The council approved adding a “Tindley Way” road sign atop the Commerce Street sign at the intersection of Commerce and Main streets. The proposal does not officially change the name of the street, as the current sign will still be there and visible.
The council approved a back-to-school supply giveaway and movie night sponsored by the Briddell Family Foundation on Sept. 3. The council also waived a $60 fee associated with the event.
The council approved the annual agreement between the town and the Berlin Fire Company which formalizes the contractual relationship between the two entities.
