CENTRAL FALLS â€” When the city's state-appointed receiver decided not to fund the programs and operations of the Adams Memorial Library back in April, Carol Basile's heart broke.
Hers wasn't the only one.
â€śI felt terribly,â€ť she said. â€śThe children were disappointed and disgusted, and the parents were, too. The Children's Room is downstairs, and they came not just to be read to but read themselves. They had other things to do; they'd play with blocks or puzzles, and the older ones would go on the computers. Their moms would sit on the couch so they could keep an eye on their children.
CENTRAL FALLS â€” By being able to piggy-back on the Pawtucket Water Supply Board's water main replacement project, 14 local roads have been newly repaved at no cost to the city.
Central Falls DPW Director Joseph Nield said that the Pawtucket Water Supply Board (PWSB) earlier this year embarked on a program to replace water mains and pipes in the water district that were 25 years old or beyond. The replacement project involved sections of 14 roads that were dug up and fitted with new pipes and mains.
