EAST PROVIDENCE â€” Voters in November will be asked to decide four referendum questions on the ballot, including amendments to the city charter that will establish a budget reserve fund, additional consolidation and reorganization of municipal departments, and four-year terms for the City Council and School Committee.
The referendum questions will be on the Nov. 6 ballot, which is headlined by the presidential contest.
PAWTUCKET â€” The city will hold a huge victory celebration Thursday for the International League Champion Pawtucket Red Sox, who captured their first Governors' Cup since 1984 in a 3-0 series sweep over the Charlotte Knights last week in Fort Mill, S.C., topping the Knights 4-1.
The celebration, which is open to the public, is being co-hosted by the City of Pawtucket and Gov. Lincoln Chafee.
