HOPKINTONâ€”A recent letter from Gov. Chafee to Town Manager William McGarry contained a pleasant surprise: This year, Hopkinton is being awarded $131,335 from the Rhode Island Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. The amount is nearly twice last yearâ€™s amount.
â€śIt was wonderful to see. We got almost double what we got last year. And itâ€™s not often you get double from the state one year over another,â€ť said Council President Frank Landolfi at Monday nightâ€™s council meeting.
