Panel OKs measures that help raise cash

June 15, 2013

WOONSOCKET – The state-appointed Budget Commission approved a pair of resolutions Friday designed to raise more than $12 million to smooth out cash flow problems, either in the form of an advance in state education aid or a short-term bank loan.
On the recommendation of Finance Director Thomas M. Bruce, the commission unanimously approved both measures, but he said it still remains to be seen which mechanism would be used to raise the cash.

Vitali says he’s noticing an increased amount of graffiti across Pawtucket and it’s not just city walls, storefronts and local businesses splattered with paint.
