Bethlehem decided Monday night to continue to allow the county to handle its elections. The town is currently charged $1,000 per year by the county elections office to operate its voting process. Mayor Sandy McNab said if Bethlehem ran its own elections, it would have to train people and have at least three people to work the polls. The council discussed at length which plan would be more cost efficient. The contract with the county is renewable each year.
