The Board of Aldermen last night unanimously approved changes to the , which will tighten up reporting requirements in an effort to recover stolen goods.

There was no discussion on the legislation, which had 11 of the 15 board members signed on as sponsors.

The rest of last night's meeting focused largely on appointments, recognition and remembrances.

Mayor Donnalee Lozeau set the tone by offering condolences for three Nashua families with city ties, all who lost loved ones this past week: the family of Mark Granmaison, 48, who died Feb. 10 after a lengthy illness; the family of Public Works employee Mark Lambert, who died Feb. 9; and the family of former City Planner Leon Kenison, who died Feb. 12.

The mayor and board formally recognized Albert W. Terrell and the Terrell family for their consideration for the city by preserving their homestead from development in deference to the city, which was able to purchase the property as conservation land. 

There were also several appointments made to various boards and commissions, including: Suzanne Harvey, as a full member of the Conservation Commission; Christopher Barrett was appointed to the Historic District Commission;
Sherman Sewell was reappointed to the Mine Falls Park Advisory Committee; John J. McAllister and Anthony V. O’Malley Jr. were reappointed to the Auditorium Commission; Arthur Olsson was reappointed to the Hunt Legacy Trustees; Judith Cudhe was reappointed to the Ira F. Harris Lecture Trustees.

Daniel Kelly was appointed to replace Thomas Yurovchak, who resigned from Nashua Regional Planning Commission; and Alderman Cookson informed the board of the resignation of the city's Superintendent of Solid Waste,  Marc Morgan, which was announced at the Feb. 9 Board of Public Works meeting.
