    Speak up about pond

    On Tuesday evening, a hearing on the petition submitted by Citizens to Protect Berlin Pond was heard at Berlin Elementary School. The petition would reinstate recreational restrictions that preceded the Supreme Court decision that transferred the control of use of the pond from the city of Montpelier to the state of Vermont.

    A multitude of issues was discussed, but none trumped that of safe drinking water. There is no scientific evidence to prove otherwise.

    This water is the safe supply for the city of Montpelier, Central Vermont Medical Center and some Berlin residents.

    Most citizens attending the hearing favored passing the petition.

    The Agency of Natural Resources will make the decision and is taking comments until June 3. Please make your comments known to one of the following by letter, email or telephone:
