Mont Vernon voters approved changing the controversial name of a pond at its town meeting Tuesday night.
Whether or not to rename Jew Pond, which many consider offensive, garnered national attention in this small town.
But voters still don’t know what the new name of the pond will be.
A packed crowd of about 250 residents filled the gymnasium in the Mont Vernon Village Schoolhouse.
The turnout was impressive for a town whose population is less than 2400.
The town meeting began as it does every year with the pledge and a prayer.
