Groton — The Town Council on Tuesday unanimously approved a plan to redefine and consolidate the town’s voting districts.
The cost-saving move will reduce the number of voting districts from eight to seven. Under the proposal, Districts 4 and 5, in the northwest section of town, would be combined to form a new District 4. District 1 would be expanded into a portion of what was District 8, but which under the new plan would become District 7.
The Representative Town Meeting, with the power the veto the changes, will take up the matter next month.
