WOONSOCKET — Members of the Budget Commission will meet privately with city lawmakers at the Statehouse today to discuss the commission’s request for enabling legislation to issue a supplemental tax bill.
Chairman William Sequino said the commission wants lawmakers to know the importance of acting quickly to approve a $2.5 million supplemental tax bill, but he is open to suggestions on how the money should be raised.
“As a body I would say yes to both questions,” Sequino said via e-mail. “We are open to suggestions and we would like speedy passage.”
