WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. — In a marathon session on Monday night, the Town Council approved a marijuana ordinance and opposed revocation of the Quinn Bill for police officers.
The 4 1/2-hour meeting at the J. Edward Christian Municipal Office Building ended with applause by off-duty police and their supporters, after seven of the nine councilors voted against dumping the state's Quinn Bill, which provides pay incentives for further education.
