Ballot controversy in North Smithfield

October 28, 2010

NORTH SMITHFIELD — Town officials are scrambling to get the word out that if voters Tuesday approve local ballot question number five — whether or not the current elected town administrator should be changed to an appointed town manager — then the effective date of that change would be Dec. 1, 2012.
Due to what town officials are calling an oversight, the town manager versus town administrator question was submitted to the Secretary of State's office without listing an effective date. Therefore, there is no effective date listed on the ballot voters will see at the polls on Tuesday.
