The real question is the City addicted to the revenue and unwilling to adjust?

Steve...I think now is a great time to buy in the city. Yes taxes are high, but investments areRead Morelong term and in the long term Woonsocket will be just fine. But low sell high. Many things should be better as time goes on, I'd say buy.

WTP, you really aren't serious with your statement are you? Within the next five years, the singleRead Moref amily home exemption rate will be close to zero, making owning a single family with a value of 140K about a $5,000.00 tax liability! Throw in a water and sewer bill, and then sprinkle in some car taxes, and you're paying more in taxes than on a mortgage! And you say things will get better? Really? What crystal ball are you looking into? This city needs to face the fact that it is BANKRUPT, and should begin the proceedings ASAP! How can a city with a 335+ MILLION DOLLAR liability even consider staying afloat? In five years, this city will be a ghost town, with only section 8 housing left to pay the bills!

Yea, the mailman's doing a great job delivering mail to my door and the local deli's doing a greatRead Morej ob slicing my cold cuts to just the right thickness. Bottom line...they're doing what they're being paid to do, no more, no less. We've got saints everywhere in Woonsocket and they come with a very high price tag.

Nelson - these streets that were recently striped have been neglected for years and years. As wellRead Morea s the warn out sidewalk crossings. Nobody was making under the belt comments. But now that you are negative as usual - I guess whoever held that roll before wasn't 'doing what they were paid to do'. Streets weren't swept until Fall, the equipment was left to depreciate, the roads slowly got to the point where they are now and all the lines in the road disappeared. That's a fact, not an opinion. Good thing LBH can have people actually do what she hired them for. Point proven between the old and new.
