The big news this week is the Fourth of July, but the Town of Warren gets back to work Tuesday. Among the items on the council’s agenda for Tuesday, July 8, are:
Special Olympians Janine Beusoleil, Lisa Caton, Eleanor Ingraham, John Kemp, Cindy O’Donnell and Robbie Strickland will be honored for their excellent showing in the summer games last month at URI. Way to go athletes!
The council will hold a public hearing and vote on a new section of town code that will compel property owners to keep better tabs on their rentals. The addition of “Property Maintenance and Housing Standards” section was brought to the council by councilor Joseph DePasquale.
Finance Director Michael Abbruzzi is requesting permission to overspend the town employee pension costs line item by up to $9,000. More on this later.
