Try North Smithfield. Woonsocket residential tax rate is $ 35.94 on 1,000 North Smithfield isRead More$15.8 6. Also If I were you I would check Cumberland. Both are better towns I am trying to sell now and leave the city but no luck. If you buy here I think your property value will continue to drop and more stores are bound to close. The services in the city are horrible they can't even plow right. I may have to just walk away from the house at some point if taxes increase anymore. Plus excise tax is through the roof. Right now they are painting the crosswalks just great paint over pothole ridden roads it is a joke.

Agreed Heavy G, Woonsocket's hundreds of millions in debt and the credit card is maxed-out. AllRead Morethey 're doing now is making the minimum payments and refinancing pension debt. Not a good idea to buy into a piece of the City's black hole.

Heavy G, is your house currently on the market? Can I ask which neighborhood it's located? I haveRead Moreon e couple looking for a single family and another buyer looking for a multi in Woonsocket. Priced right, homes in the city are selling in 37 days on average, over the last 6 months.

^There's my point again. Municipal finance. The city doesn't get revenue directly from activeRead Morebusine sses. The city taxes the commercial property that the business occupies. The vacant Lowes and Walmart is still generating 100% of the taxes it used to. Same thing with apartments, even if you have a vacancy, you are still paying the same property tax. Now, if you want to make a case for indirectly stimulating the local economy and securing future finances, then we have a discussion.

If we can draw in 1 or 2 more restaurants like a Panera or Olive Garden then that would help boostRead Moreo ur Meals and Sales tax revs. People in Woonsocket love to eat we know that.

The beauty of what Heavy G just did, is he brought his concern up in a discussion forum. He didn'tRead Moreh op on the mic and yell at the city council, then angrily wait for a response to a question that can't simply be answered. This would be a great opportunity for the Woonsocket Tax Coalition to educate the citizens on this kind of stuff. Their last advertised meeting was 2012, when they tried to sue the city.

He should have stuck one up his keister while he was at it. Is that the correct spelling forRead Morekeister ?
