North bridge Fall Town Meeting Results

By MyFM's Rick Michaels - Northbridge residents moved quickly through ten articles on the Fall Annual Town Meeting, with little controversy, approving appropriating money for two big projects.   The Board of Selectmen was seeking approval of an article to purchase and replace the remaining streetlights in town and convert them to LED fixtures at a cost the Finance Committee approved of, not to exceed 400-thousand dollars.  The School Committee asked the town to allocate money for repairs and upgrades at the Middle School with the FinCom recommending passage in the amount not to exceed 200-thousand dollars.   The town also approved article 8, amending the zoning by-law for industrial zones to allow for the use of amusement and recreational services in hopes of attracting new businesses to Northbridge.
