By a vote of 382 to 157, voters also rejected Question 2, which asked residents to act on a $100,000 override for the Blackstone-Millville Regional School District.

City gets tough on trash deadbeats

June 23, 2011

WOONSOCKET – The city has begun seizing the trash carts of property owners who have ignored repeated requests to make good on overdue curbside collection fees.
It's all part of a new effort to recoup roughly $250,000 in delinquent trash fees, said Public Works Director Sheila McGauvran.
“It's a last resort,” she said. “We don't want to be doing it. We want people to pay their bills.”
