Rutland city grand list up $4 million

By Ed Larson

Rutland City Mayor David Allaire told the Rutland City Board of Aldermen Monday evening, June 17, that figures from City Assessor Barry Keefe indicate a $3.3 million increase in the personal property assessments and another $600,000 jump in property taxes.

“This may assist when budget deliberations occur,” Allaire said. 

Allaire also said the municipal budget will be presented to the Board of Aldermen earlier this year and that a potential $500,000 bond may be proposed for the March 2020 Town Meeting  to repair sidewalks in the city due to the numerous complaints about sidewalk quality that have surfaced recently.

Allaire also shared that the sale of the vacant Hobby Lobby has reached the city clerks office with the property transfer to Ocean State Job Lots.
