SOUTHBRIDGE — As Town Council meetings go, Monday's was largely uneventful.

The only debate came over one of four usually routine appointments, by which a 6-3 vote put former Councilor Larry Spinelli on the General Government subcommittee and a citizen member.

When it came up, Councilor Conrad Vandal decried the proposal, claiming "It stinks like fish." He objected largely on the grounds that during his 15 months on the council, Spinelli had chaired that committee, but had lost his re-election bid this June.
