City could lose $1.4M in aid

June 21, 2013

WOONSOCKET – As the Budget Commission prepares to adopt the first budget of its five-year solvency plan Monday, there are hurdles on the revenue side of the $127.9 million spending package some officials fear may be insurmountable.
The latest curveball is a proposed $1.4 million cut in aid the commission was expecting from the state. Gov. Lincoln Chafee had included the money for distressed communities and pension supports in his proposed $8.2 billion state budget, but when the plan emerged from the House Finance Committee earlier this week, the aid had been eliminated.
