Supplemental tax bill for city moves forward


A legislative committee passed a bill Tuesday that would allow Woonsocket to levy another tax on property and motor vehicles this year.

The House Finance Committee approved the bill 12-2. It goes to the full House on Thursday.

The city could raise up to $6.6 million with the supplemental tax. The city is struggling with a $10 million deficit in the school department.

The bill passed the state Senate earlier this month.
