Consistency between the different ordinances also needs to be addressed

With solid support by residents, the Bethlehem Select Board passed a litter control ordinance in September 2020 and a noise ordinance in February 2021, each of which carries fines for violators that can be paid directly to the town through civil forfeiture. A problem recently discovered, however, is there are no forms to issue violators. In the second page of Bethlehem Police Chief Alan DeMoranville’s ticket book are the tickets that tell violators to go to Littleton District Court and pay a fine, through the standard traffic ticket routine, she said. Except Bethlehem’s municipal ordinances state violators can go to the town clerk and pay their fine, said Morris. Consistency between the different ordinances also needs to be addressed, said Morris.
