TRURO – Truro town council is standing by its decision to allow expansion to the Truro Tennis Club.
Coun. Brian Kinsman asked for a vote to reconsider an October council decision to allow an expansion of the tennis courts to allow for two additional courts for youth tennis initiatives.
Supporting Kinsman's attempt to debate the decision was Coun. Greg MacArthur and Danny Joseph. Mayor Bill Mills and Coun. Cheryl Fritz, Tom Chisholm and Raymond Tynes voted against the motion, therefore defeating it. It required five votes of support to continue.
Kinsman suggested the original decision lacked community input, was "premature and short-sighted" in light of an upcoming master plan for the park.
