Town Council, LAX & More
Five things you need to know about East Greenwich today, April 9.
Town Council meeting: On the Council’s agenda is someone applying for a victualing license for Audra’s Café, a Main Street restaurant that closed last year. Also on the agenda, the council will vote on a resolution denouncing Gov. Chafee’s proposed 2 percent meals tax increase. That increase, according to the budget, would be used to speed up school funding to cities and towns — including East Greenwich — that had been underfunded in recent years.
Avenger action: Boys JV Lacrosse team plays Moses Brown at 4 p.m. on Carcieri Field.
