The situation that arose at the Council meeting is explicitly covered in the Council's Rules ofRead MoreOrde r. Rule 12 lists the order of precedence of motions. Lay on the table is number 3, the main motion (motion to approve) is number 11. Rule 12 continues "when any of them is immediately pending, the motions before it on the said list are in order and shall be acted upon first.". A motion to table is therefore in order even when a motion to approve has already been made and there is no need to withdraw the original motion. In my experience, matters are frequently tabled after the main motion has been made. Looks like some councillors need to review the Council's own rules.

When a question is tabled, it carries with it all the attributes it was tabled with. So, when thisRead Morer esolution comes off the table, it is already motioned for a vote. The resolution in question was already tabled once, from the last meeting. It wasn't motioned to for approval, it was simply tabled. Withdrawing the motion to approve makes this a fresh resolution with no other caveats attached.

Isn't it true that once a position becomes available in towns/cities of the state, they are to have Read Morean open bid for the available role?

Let's hope it's a very good reason. I thought Mr. Bruce was doing a good job!! And I think theRead Moretaxpa yers of Woon. should be told the reason why he was let go. I guess she can't stand anyone who was in Fontaine's adm. What a Mess!!!

Just a distraction folks. As everyone knows, Woonsocket's central issue is taxes. Keep buying theRead MoreBS though, i always enjoy a good laugh.

It was always a fact that we were going to have FDK! People are finally seeing the truth about this Read Moremayor! She's going to shove this down our throats until you puke on it! We can only hope for receivership so the mayor loses her abusive power because if you're negative or don't go along with her she gets rid of you.

Lately, EVERYTHING that's been happening here in Woonsocket is BS!!!!

You might be a Woonsocket millbilly if . . . . . . You like meat pie . . . You still think oneRead Moreo f those guys was "the good Brien," but you haven't figured out which one. . . . You remember Sue Menard as a warm grandmotherly figure . . . You do all your banking at ABAL Check Cashing You might be a millbilly if . . . . . . You think medical marijuana can cure leprosy . . . You had a blow-out with your husband because he said that lovely singer at the Stadium's Diana Ross tribute show was really a guy. . . . You do your Christmas shopping at storage unit auctions . . . You caught toe nail fungus from The Footlicker You might be a millbilly if . . . . . . Your grandfather worked in a mill, your father worked in a mill, and you work at Burger King . . . You barbecue meat you won in a raffle . . . The day after the raffle you tried to pay a hooker with frozen steaks . . . You've never been to a nude beach, but you've gone midnight skinny dipping at Pool Pro.

Keep smiling, all she's done is continue to spend spend spend and fire anyone who speaks outRead Moreagainst even when they're right and she's wrong!!
SMD April 19, 2014 at 05:59 PM
And its obvious KS that to some she can do no wrong, thats the way politics is. There hasnt beenRead Moremu ch of a change. going back for years and it continues. Funny how when Baldellli was a state rep and running for mayor she said that all of our problems were fontaine's fault, but now that she's in the hot seat, she acknowledges that we're in the mess we're in because of cuts in state aid.

I agree with Jay - we have to give the new Mayor and her administration a chance ... at least I'mRead Morewi lling to do that - and I don't belong to her political party!

Well this was my very first blog about something and I see people are as fired up as me about these Read Morecrazy tax rates. I was driving into the city from a different way and realized the city was not very big and wondered how this could get messed up so much with all these houses one after another. Such a big budget for a small city. Even the old mills were turned into condos that generate a very large amount of tax revenue .Passion is good! Good luck to all.

Why should we give her a chance when she's not giving anyone at city hall a chance? If you are not Read Morea yes person, then she's terminates you or belittles you in front of the cameras.
