Proponents of a Swansea Beach Revitalization Project are vowing to try again by perhaps shrinking a proposal from its current $3.9 million dollar price tag, while warning that some redesign may be needed to rethink a proposal that failed to get the needed two thirds of more than 1100 Swansea voters who attended a single article special town meeting earlier this week.
Opponents argued that spending millions on a beach on the New England Coastline was not a wise expenditure of public dollars, as it could be only be used for a small portion of the year.
As the Fall River City Council prepares to debate and perhaps vote on a Streetscape and Municipal Department Equipment proposal that will be debated first in Finance Committee Tuesday Night, a pair of Fall River City Councilors are asking the other seven members to halt the proceedings so the streetscape proposal, submitted by Fall River Mayor Jasiel Correia II this summer, will be voted on at a General or Special Election in 2017.
Council Members Ray Mitchell and Richard Cabeceiras submitted the order as part of a 135 page Council Packet available on the city's website; the order asks that the streetscape proposals be combined into a single loan order, with no contracts be executed until voters have a chance to decide the issues.
