January 22, 2011

NORTH SMITHFIELD – The town's new municipal court has been up and running since September and, so far, it's doing everything town officials had hoped it would, including reaping new revenue and accelerating the legal process for disposition of violations.
In a second quarterly report released this week by court administrator and police Capt. Thomas R. Lafleur, more than $17,000 in revenue was generated by the court, with a net revenue amount for the town standing at nearly $10,000.
