Voters in Somerville passed six articles, including two new ordinances, almost entirely without opposition at special town meeting Feb. 7.
The two new ordinances, which establish certain standards and application procedures for subdivisions and commercial developments, passed without opposition.
A reworked article from annual town meeting last year also passed. The original article, which allows the selectmen to expend funds receive from grants and other sources as long as the source requires less than $10,000 in matching funds from the town, had the wrong dates at annual town meeting and was voted down at that time.
Voters also approved the transfer of, all from the town’s general fund, $200,000 to the capital road construction reserve account, $50,000 to the revaluation reserve account, and $2,000 for the comprehensive plan update reserve account.
A single vote against the revaluation reserve transfer was the only vote against any article at the meeting.
