BERLIN – Merchants and town staff aired their concerns with Berlin’s array of special events during a work session this week.
On Tuesday, many of the town’s department heads met with a handful of merchants and chamber of commerce representatives to discuss the town’s annual events and any issues related to them.
“The focus was to talk about events and what’s working, what’s not,” said Laura Allen, Berlin’s town administrator.
She said the work session came as a result of issues that were brought up at merchant meetings, and, because of the varying attendance at those, weren’t necessarily resolved. The meeting, Allen said, was an “all hands on deck” approach to clearing up any identified problems and making needed changes.
