Warwick, RI – On Monday, Councillors will consider final passage of parking restrictions on Thurber Street and Parkside Drive, prohibiting dumping trash in someone else’s bin, and restricting bid awards to companies with a certificate of good standing.

The council will also consider a resolution stating their support for exempting new construction on development property while it’s unoccupied or for sale.

Councilwoman Camille Vella-Wilkinson proposes adding the following language to the city’s article III, Chapter 22 regarding garbage, debris and rubbish: “​It shall be unlawful for any person to dump litter, trash, rubbish, garbage or any refuse into a refuse container without the permission of the owner, lessee or renter of the refuse container.”

Vella-Wilkinson has also proposed awarding a$5,888 bid for buying and installing three handicap door 0peners at the Pilgrim Senior Center

Councilman Joseph Solomon has proposed requiring that before the city awards bids to a company, that business must first possess a certificate of good standing with the city.

Solomon proposes adding the language,  “All bid submissions from corporations, limited liability companies and other legal entities shall include a certificate of good standing dated no more than thirty (30) days prior to the date of the date upon which the bids will be opened,” to Chapter 56 of Warwick’s Code of Ordinances.

Councilman Ladoceur has proposed a resolution stating the Council’s support of House Bill H-5044, which exempts new construction on development property from taxation while the property is unoccupied or on the market for sale.

The Council will also consider second passage on parking restrictions on Thurber Street and Parkside Drive.
