The City of Providence today launched its Open Meetings Portal – a single, public access point for public meeting information.
Councilman David A. Salvatore (Ward 14) has proposed that the Council examine policies, procedures and laws relating to tax incentives, stabilizations, and policy in the city.
Majority Leader Seth Yurdin (Ward One) is introducing legislation that will remove compensation for members of the Board of Licenses. Yurdin had previously expressed his disappointment with the Board for not revoking the licenses held by the adult entertainment club Cheaters, after it was confirmed that the club had employed a 14-year-old as a dancer. The ordinance will be introduced at Thursday’s Council meeting.
