WOONSOCKET â€“ Landmark Medical Centerâ€™s proposed acquisition by Prime Healthcare Services of California will come before Superior Court Judge Michael Silverstein this afternoon for a possible ruling on a closing date for the transaction.
Landmark spokesman William Fischer said on Tuesday that Jonathan Savage, the state-appointed special master supervising Landmarkâ€™s fiscal operations, had earlier filed a petition recommending the acquisition by Prime and seeking a closing date for the transaction.
The first snow of the season to stick, even though lightly, was a reminder on Tuesday that area public works departments will soon be spending money on keeping roads safe through another winter season.
Cumberland Mayor Dan McKee said public works employees in his community knew a light snowfall might arrive with the quick change to cold weather following the weekend but did not have to go out sanding just yet.
â€śBut it is a wakeup call,â€ť McKee said while noting the early snow squalls did call attention to work already being completed to ready the townâ€™s fleet of 17-18 plows and sanders.
