Police officer bitten by pit bull

May 7, 2013

WOONSOCKET – A police officer was bitten by a pit bull early Tuesday while investigating a report of a domestic assault at 252 Burnside Ave., police said.
Patrolman Patrick Greeno, 24, was struggling with a woman in the kitchen when one of her daughters opened a bedroom door, allowing two pit bulls to get out.
As he and another patrolman were wrestling 44-year-old Katie Acevedo into a pair of handcuffs, Greeno reported, one of the dogs bit him on the right forearm, breaking the skin and opening a laceration about a half-inch long.

Senate FinCom OKs $2.5M supplemental tax levy

May 7, 2013

PROVIDENCE – The Senate Finance Committee unanimously approved Sen. Marc Cote’s bill to approve a $2.5 million supplemental property tax levy in Woonsocket on Tuesday.
The measure will now go to the full Senate, but Cote said if it is approved there, it will be held until other parts of the plan to reduce Woonsocket’s deficit plan are concluded. These include negotiations that Mayor Leo Fontaine and Budget Commission Chairman William Sequino are currently conducting with city employees and retirees to cut payroll and pension costs.
