Mayor George Apel has appointed another prominent business person to the town's Economic Development Commission.
The Town Council on Tuesday endorsed the appointment of Meghan Scranton, a Republican, of Scranton Motors, to the commission. She lives in Coventry, but is a principal of the Cadillac, Buick and GMC dealership on Talcottville Road that just underwent a major renovation.
He term expires on June 30, 2017.
The commission is a who's who of local business people.
Apel said he has no problem with Scranton not being a resident of Coventry because she does business in Vernon.
Council Democrat Michael Winkler wondered aloud whether prominent business owners would create a potential conflict regarding any competition that might come by. Apel said the commission has been focusing more on "the big picture" and has been discussing things like the town's branding.
