About 150 citizens met in downtown Belleville to ring in the New Year on Public Square Wednesday afternoon.  Mayor Mark Eckert only had one bell to shake but it was a huge bell. Belleville will be celebrating its 200th anniversary as a city throughout 2014, and this was the inaugural event of that celebration -- ringing a bell for two minutes at 2 p.m. to kick off Belleville's 200th year.
