Both votes were unanimous.

Although in years past the council has also elected a secretary, a town charter change approved during town meeting balloting on Tuesday eliminates that office as of July 1. So no action was taken in that regard.

Wednesday’s session was the first meeting of the newly formed council following Tuesday’s election. Councilor Paul Paradis won re-election and Matt Horton, a former town councilor, also was elected.

Ms. Eveland is the head librarian at the Jesup Memorial Library on Mount Desert Street.
