Moment of silence scheduled on 9/11

The city of Watertown will be observing a citywide moment of silence on Wednesday at 9:28 a.m., the time the North Tower of the World Trade Center fell on Sept. 11, 2001.

Mayor Emily McFarland is inviting all Watertown residents and businesses to pause operations and observe the moment of silence in recognition of the first responders, victims and families.

Watertown police Chief Robert Kaminski and fire Chief Kraig Biefeld will read a short statement and those interested in viewing it are invited to watch the city's Facebook live video at that time.

Area churches are also invited to toll their church bells at 9:28 a.m.

The municipal building will be illuminated red, white and blue Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning.
