The Berlin Bulletin

Love is in the air as we move into February. Colder temperatures also come to our area this time of year. Check out the Snow Things You Should Know section below for some helpful tips including how to shovel your driveway so the snow plows don’t block it.

Did you know Berlin has a volunteer energy conservation program called Tweak Our Peak? By cutting back on the amount of wholesale power purchased during these peak, high-priced periods, Berlin Electric can reduce its total wholesale power costs. Reductions in wholesale power costs are passed through to the customers in their monthly bills in the Power Cost Adjustment (PCA). For more energy saving tips, see the Berlin Electric Utility website at .

As I mentioned last month, the Town received a grant to complete a Resilience Element for our Comprehensive Plan. As communities adjust to increasingly extreme weather events, stress on public facilities, and higher costs of services, there is growing need to not only plan for these events, but to also reduce the impacts through conscious climate adaptation and resilience planning. We want to hear what you think about climate change, funding our future, and growth. W e're holding a series of meetings focused on Making Berlin Resilient at the following dates and times:

March 14th from 6 - 9 pm at Buckingham Elementary School 
March 16th from 10 am - 1 pm at Worcester County Library
March 18th from 6 - 9 pm at the Multi-Purpose Building

We hope to see you there.

Thank you for your interest in the  Berlin Bulletin ,
