HOPKINTONâA 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 yearâs amount.
âIt was wonderful to see. We got almost double what we got last year. And itâs not often you get double from the state one year over another,â said Council President Frank Landolfi at Monday nightâs council meeting.
