Despite some pretty vocal opposition, town council Monday approved changes to its pay-to-play rules that requires businesses competing for contracts to report every dollar they contribute to political campaigns—while also allowing them to contribute thousands of dollars more.

Council adopted the changes by a 4-1 vote.
