Voters broaden economic commission’s charge

Without no debate or dissent, a Town Meeting changed the name and slightly expanded the duties of what is now officially called the Economic and Community Development Commission — or ECDC.

Under the change, the economic commission may now accept private money and use it to promote events going on in town, with the permission of the event organizers.

About 30 voters attended the Aug. 13 town meeting that quickly adopted the adjustments to the ECDC ordinance.
