Merry Christmas - It's Christmas, and I would like to wish everyone in Woonsocket a happy holiday. We've covered a lot of good deeds leading up to Christmas, proof that though the city has its challenges, its a community its members can be proud to be part of. Here's hoping Christmas brings something special for you from someone with a kind heart - Rob
Snow - There's a chance of snow today - perhaps just in time for a white Christmas. The weather geeks predict a 60 percent chance of the white stuff falling out of the sky this morning. There's less than an inch predicted, so if you're traveling, it shouldn't hamper your plans, but it might make the scenery a little more seasonal.
Council 2013 - The Woonsocket City Council's next meeting is scheduled for Jan. 7, 2013.
Calling all plows - The City of Woonsocket is interested in hiring private trucks with plows, as well as four wheel drive vehicles with plows and other snow removal equipment on an hourly rental basis.
