Fining the contractor for Providence’s Small Business Saturday street closure seems like a cover-up.

This is just a little too neat and tidy a resolution to the story of government incompetence in Providence mentioned in this space yesterday:

The construction company responsible for the closure of a Providence street lined with small businesses during one of the busiest shopping days of the year has been fined for working without a permit.

It’d be interesting to trace the history.  I could see the city generally letting permits slip, except where it becomes a political liability.
