FR City Council Tonight

The nine member Fall River City Council meets tonight for the first time in 2017 to elect a President and Vice President; WSAR has learned that current Council President Shawn Cadime and Vice President Linda Pereria will likely be returned to their respective posts.

Council will also hear about an issue in the Buildings and Grounds Department that began with an internal email, obtained by WSAR, alleging that Interim Director Peter Gallagher directed employees to submit overtime for a pair of School Department Projects, instead of the municipal items that were being worked on. 

Local Architect Jo Ann Bentley will also appear before Council tonight in order to explain her role in the Pine Street Veterans Building issue, after her name came up during discussions in December on the issue of rehabbing the building. 

Council will also get a summary of the current municipal budget as it enters the second half of fiscal year 2018.
