Glenark deal draws City Council ire

November 27, 2012

WOONSOCKET — Members of the City Council had plenty to say about the potential loss of a $200,000 city loan owed by the 67-unit Glenark Landing housing complex Monday night, but also admitted that any fight regarding their concerns would be best taken to the General Assembly.
The discussion of the Glenark’s takeover by the Rhode Island Housing agency and potential foreclosure on Friday came during a council work session in the panel’s second floor meeting room at City Hall and included a number of council jabs that the agency was again hitting city taxpayers in their pocketbooks.
