December 12, 2011

WOONSOCKET — The state Department of Revenue has laid down a Wednesday deadline for the School Department to submit a plan to clarify its current rate of spending on personnel after the unexpected discovery of a deficit of $2.2 to $2.7 million in last year’s school budget.
If the inquiry points to the incursion of yet another deficit at the end of the current fiscal year, DOR might appoint a fiscal overseer to monitor the city’s expenses, state Revenue Director Rosemary Booth Gallogly said.
