Need to Know Basics: Veterans Day Ceremony, Open/Closed, Council Docket

Need to know basics

need to know2Warwick, RI – Today the nation honors those who served their country in the military, with ceremonies and, in some instances, displays of appreciation in the form of discounts.

Here’s a reminder of what’s open and closed, and of today’s Veterans Day wreath laying ceremony, along with a look at tomorrow’s City Council Docket:

Veterans Day Observance, Warwick Vets– Warwick Veterans High School will host a wreath-laying ceremony in observance of Veterans Day this morning, 10 a.m.

Open/closed – The Warwick Public Library will be closed for Veterans Day, as will government offices and schools. CCRI is also not holding classes.

Banks, with the exception of Citizen’s Bank in local Stop and Shop grocery stores, are closed, as are the clerical offices of the Warwick Police and Fire Departments.

City Council meets tomorrow night – The Warwick City Council meets Wednesday at City Hall, 3275 Post Road, starting at 5 p.m. with the Finance Committee, the Ordinance Committee at 6 p.m. and  the Intergovernmental Committee at 6:20 p.m.

The Finance Committee will consider a resolution opposing the city’s participation in a mayoral academy proposed by Councilwoman Camille Vella-Wilkinson.

The Intergovernmental Committee will consider a resolution requesting former councilman Robert Cushman to present his figures on the city’s pension figures to the Council.

Cushman’s figures were the basis for Stacia Petri’s claim that the city is $1 billion in debt during her failed Republican primary bid.

The Ordinance Committee will consider regulations for food trucks and new penalties for littering.

Those issues will also be discussed by the full council during their 7 p.m. meeting. The Council will also consider a resolution to accept the transfer of ownership of the Warwick Area Career and Technical Center, and a use agreement of the former Christopher Rhodes Elementary School.
