I have heard about this and after the stabbing yesterday by Subway, I'm sure it is bound to happen here.
Just be alert when walking on main street or any where else.
Recieved this the other day:
Dear Business Owner / Proprieter
Please be advised that beginning May 1st 2013 the City of Beacon Police dept will be enforcing the two (2) hour parking ordinance on Main Street on a regular basis. This will be done to ensure that our visitors and patrons have a positive experience while doing business in the City of Beacon.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact my office
Today I had a rep from Royal carting come in to renew my dumpster agreement which I must have by law in Beacon. In conversation he said a few things I did not know. 1) Trash from beacon does not go to a landfill, it is incenderated. 2) Beacon has seen a 30% increase in recyclables due to the new bins. The reason for the new bins is that all recycle now goes to Hudson Baylor, which does not require seperated recycle. Which the old county plant does.
