Group threatens legal action over tax

July 23, 2013

WOONSOCKET – Just when it seemed like the torturous journey of the 2013 supplemental tax bill was coming to an end, another twist in the road lies ahead for the controversial budget-balancer.
An organized protest group that contends the city is planning to collect the tax in violation of the conditions established by state law now promises it will challenge the $2.5 million supplemental tax in Superior Court.
“If they go forward with this, yes, more than likely we will take legal action,” said James Cournoyer. “What the result of that will be, who knows? Let the chips fall where they may.”
