The Mayor’s office never mentioned how many applicants were received for the Council on Aging when she submitted names to the City Council in July. SOURCE could not find an advertisement for the Council on the City’s website, like the advertisements posted for for License Commission, Traffic Commission, Planning Board, Zoning Board of Appeals, etc.
