Council not sold on Jalette proposal

November 23, 2012

WOONSOCKET – Councilman Roger Jalette says the city sometimes assesses sewer and trash fees to dwelling units deemed unfit for occupancy, but it’s unfair to the property owners and shouldn’t be allowed.
The longtime councilman introduced a proposal to rectify the situation earlier this week, but colleagues on the City Council voted to table the measure for further study.
Councilman Daniel Gendron, vice president of the panel, said one of his concerns is that the proposal could become administratively unwieldy and open the door to abuses.

Wind in their sales

LINCOLN – The holiday shopping season opened on a brisk note as shoppers swamped stores to scarf up Black Friday bargains at area retail stores.
Some 500 customers formed a line that snaked around the corner of Target at Lincoln Mall before the doors opened at 1 a.m. Friday.
The manager said the store brought in extra personnel to handle the crowds and distribute store “maps” to help customers find what they were looking for.
