Am I reading that right? $186,000? We are going to pay our town manager more than the governor makes? Tbf, the Cienki council was rightfully criticized for doing the same with Corrigan.

Great – just what we need more condos where pals used to be !!!!!!!! With summer coming and ALL the summer traffic it is impossible for for 2 cars driving on either side of the road to get threw when cars are parked on the street …. “ below the hill “ is losing its charm !! The condos being built at 32 Exchange will have “ a car and a half “ space to park !! Can someone explain what in the heck that even is .. how is this town even allowing all these condos to be built in such a small area

When they tore down Charlie Fishels house the town of east Greenwich owed it to us neighbors to warn us .. with all that harmful soil and dust flying around …. It was awful
