Added to that, an added hour of daylight this fall could help restaurants with their outdoor dining.

The Bedford Chamber of Commerce has been working on ideas to help Bedford Businesses, including a suggestion to extend Daylight Savings time so that restaurants could extend their outdoor dining season. Seems like the later sunsets would help increase their outdoor dinner business plus, it would be an hour earlier so a bit warmer as well.

So, what IS Bedford thinking?

What do you think we should do about daylight savings?

  • Keep it the same
  • Extend it through November
  • Get rid of it for 2020
