More Savings in Cranston?
There was one bit of news that emerged from last night’s Cranston City Council meeting on FY2010 budget. Speaking during the public comment section, Cranston firefighters union President Paul Valletta stated that his union has a deal on the table with Mayor Allan Fung’s administration that involves $350,000 in concessions for this fiscal year and a total of $3.8 million in concessions over 28 months.
Hopefully, $3.8 million will be a big enough number for the Council to consider “substantial“.
Mr. Valletta’s remarks on the potential savings, and his exchange with City Council President John Lanni, can be heard here.
