Providence College officials weigh in on 'new' Big East

March 21, 2013

PROVIDENCE – After months of silence on the comings and goings of the re-configured Big East, Providence College officials had plenty to say Wednesday.
Staging a press conference that served as the lead-in for the PC-Charlotte NIT battle, School President the Rev. Brian J. Shanley and Athletic Director Bob Driscoll spoke for roughly 30 minutes about a wide range of Big East-related topics. The PC power pair not only broke down the league’s new structure, they also revealed why they have been so close-mouthed in public over recent weeks.

City to divert wastewater cash to coffers

March 21, 2013

WOONSOCKET — On a split vote, the Budget Commission has approved new contracts with Bellingham, Blackstone and North Smithfield that compel those communities to pay the city millions in “host fees” for using the Woonsocket Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant.
The fees, which amount to more than $6.2 million over 20 years, mark the first time the city has taken money from outside ratepayers that will be deposited into the city’s general fund instead of a
self-sustaining, ratepayer-generated fund that supports all other wastewater operations.
