Schools OK bill to speed up aid

April 14, 2013

WOONSOCKET – The School Committee has voted its support of a legislative bill that would allow the city to collect scheduled increases in state school aid immediately.
School Committeeman Christopher Roberts submitted the resolution approved by the committee under a unanimous vote on Wednesday that asks the General Assembly to speed up state aid awards scheduled under the state’s revised school aid formula.

Mayor proposes tax amnesty

April 14, 2013

WOONSOCKET – The City Council tonight is expected to pass Mayor Leo T. Fontaine’s request to make June a tax-amnesty month.
The administration is asking the council to support legislation to waive 15 percent interest charges on delinquent taxes of up to $3,000. The offer would apply to any real estate owned by the same individual for three years, business equipment and motor vehicles.
As far as Tax Assessor Chris Celeste knows, the city has never had a tax amnesty event before, and he doesn’t anticipate that there will ever be one again if the council supports the plan.
