Fairhaven Town Meeting Delays Government Restructuring

tsm – Fairhaven Board of Selectmen

There will be no restructuring of Fairhaven Town Government, at least not yet. 

Town Meeting on Saturday delayed votes on suggestions made by the Mass. Dept. of Revenue, and instead voted to form a Government Study Committee.
