Mark Lucas has written a summary of last night’s special ordinance committee meeting, which considered and ultimately rejected a proposed ordinance. I am not exactly sure what this ordinance said, so have asked to get a copy and will post it.
Also, Jesse from Cranston has suggested we discuss the tax letter recently sent out by Mayor Napolitano, the one coming from an address other than city hall and explaining that it was basically Laffey’s fault and the fault of the Democratic city council that he had to raise taxes this year. I’ve called City Hall and requested a copy of this letter, which I will also post online. Feel free to start the discussion ahead of time but please provide actual quotes from the letter or accurate summaries to make the discussion optimally fruitful.
Also, there are rumors that an agreement has been reached between the city and the concrete plant, and that the agreement involves a payout to the concrete plant in order to stop the plant from being further built or operated.
