Brookline Town Meeting News Links

I was at Town Meeting last night in my role as a Town Meeting Member, and I expect to be there tonight as well. (And I hope we conclude our business in two nights.)

For those interested in what we accomplished last night, here are links to two articles:

Brookline TAB/Wicked Local Brookline: "Town Meeting backs some expanded powers for town administrator, naming selectmen as police and fire commissioners" by John Hilliard

Brookline Patch: "Brookline Town Meeting in 60 Seconds" by Neal Simpson

The really short version: the Town Administrator gets a little more power, the Selectmen are officially our Police and Fire Commissioners, and parking questions will be referred to a Moderator's Committee for further study.
