Cumberland seeking to strike gushers... to boost water supply

October 16, 2013

CUMBERLAND – A town consulting firm was getting good initial results Tuesday while conducting water well testing at the Schofield Farm property as part of its search for a potential future town well field.

Of course, the town is also looking at several other town sites as potential public water supplies, and town Water Superintendent Chris Champi said the review is only the start of a process that could take up to three years before a new well supply is connected to the town’s water system.

Woonsocket schools seeing surprise surplus

October 16, 2013

WOONSOCKET – Already the subject of an open records lawsuit, Education Department financial data indicating that the city experienced a surprise multi-million-dollar surplus in 2013 could be released publicly by the Budget Commission as early as today.

“That’s what we’re aiming for,” said Acting Chairwoman Dina Dutremble.
Neither Dutremble nor Commissioner John Ward, City Council president, would provide specifics about the size of the surplus or other details. But sources close to the commission who asked not to be identified said the net surplus would be about $2 million.
