Fall River City Council Meeting Wrap

The nine-member Fall River City Council approved five grants, including a COVID-19 Grant worth over half a million dollars, along with a Narcan Grant over a little over &7,000 and a Commonwealth Grant of some $400,000 for Tennis Courts at Kennedy Park, 


The council stopped short of calling a special meeting to discuss what City Council President and Mayoral Finalist Cliff Ponte maintains as a structural deficit in the FY 2022 Municipal Budget, but the idea was stopped cold when Linda Pereria objected. 

The budget will be a point of discussion two weeks from now in the final session before Election Day on November 2.,
