— A holiday-decorated Community Tree inside Cary’s Town Hall that debate among council members and residents now has a name.

The Cary Town Council voted 6-1 Thursday to call it the Cary Community Christmas Tree. Council member Julie Robison voted against the change.

The decoration has been called the Community Tree since it first went up in 2006. It is decorated with ornaments donated by businesses and organizations throughout the community.

The debate over the proposed name change fueled a flood of angry e-mails to the Town Council and even the mayor last December.
