No surprises at Wellesley Special Town Meeting

As expected, a proposal that would grant alcohol licenses to Wellesley restaurants with 50 or more seats passed at Monday’s Special Town Meeting. More hoops will need to be jumped through, including legislative approval and a town vote possibly next spring, before the town can act on this plan. The idea is to help boost business at smaller restaurants and encourage new ones to open in town.

Funding was also approved at the meeting for the Fuller Brook Park project and a new Municipal Light Plant project.

Here’s a more detailed rundown of the town meeting results, from the Boston Globe, and here’s a brief scorecard of the action from the town.
