Budget panel: FY 13 surplus totals $2.36M

October 17, 2013

WOONSOCKET – As promised, the Budget Commission released a much sought-after report yesterday preliminarily indicating that the city finished fiscal year 2013 on June 30 with a combined $2.36 million operating surplus for the city and its Education Department.

It may sound rosier than it is, since the city projected finishing the fiscal year with a cumulative multi-year deficit of $6.4 million. Thanks to the better-than-expected performance in the one-year operating position, that cumulative deficit is about a third smaller, but it still stands at an imposing $4.046 million.

AG sues city for access to records

October 17, 2013

WOONSOCKET — State Attorney General Peter Kilmartin has filed a lawsuit against the city for violating the Access to Open Records Act over a lawyer’s 2012 request for paperwork associated with the proposed water treatment plant.

The lawsuit accuses the city of two violations stemming from lawyer Michael Kelly’s December 2012 request for documents. One alleges that the city failed to answer the request within the minimum time frame allowed by law, the other that the city didn’t provide one specific document – the sales agreement for land on which the plant is to be built – at all.

October 16, 2013

CUMBERLAND – A town consulting firm was getting good initial results Tuesday while conducting water well testing at the Schofield Farm property as part of its search for a potential future town well field.
