Council Names New Municipal Building After Mayor Doorley
On Thursday, February 2nd, the Providence City Council passed a resolution officially naming the City’s new municipal building after former Mayor Joseph A. Doorley, Jr. “A consummate public servant who helped modernize and revitalize our City, I can think of no one more deserving of this honor than Mayor Doorley,” said Council President Michael A. Solomon (Ward Five).
I am going to try to not sidewalk rant here. It is still snowing, so by right, no one is required to have their sidewalks clear, but expect a little ranting to sneak in, I can’t help myself!
I was out between noon and 1pm and did a big loop through Downcity to Waterplace and back.
Right off the bat, a little rant, I told you I can’t help myself. Well not so much a rant as a surprise; the sidewalks at Dominica Manor have not been touched today. They do not need to be per regulations, but they are usually out clearing snow all day on a day like this. Budget problems?
I didn’t take a photo, but as always, Angelo’s was clear. Someone was out shoveling and salting as I walked by.
Again, dumbfounded here, my ranting is bearing fruit. Someone (I assume the City though it is a State bridge) dumped a metric ton of salt on the Atwells Avenue Bridge sidewalks.
Of course then the plows pushed snow up on top of it. The sidewalk on the other side faired better and was actually clear, even as I walked back and the snow was getting heavier.
