COVENTRYâ€” Four bond referendum requests were brought forth to the General Assembly by District 28 representative Scott Guthrie (D- Coventry) last Thursday, for Coventry to finance close to $23 million in improvements to the town, including the possibility of a new police station.
The proposed bills are also requesting bond referendums for infrastructure improvements to sidewalks, streets and bridges, the installation of an emergency generator in the Department of Human Services Building â€” which is also used as a senior center â€” and improvements and renovation of Parks and Recreation buildings.
Once the bills are approved, the residents of Coventry will get the opportunity to vote of the bonds in Novemberâ€™s election. District 25 (Coventry, West Warwick) Representative Jared Nunes is co-sponsoring the bills and wants to give the voters the opportunity to decide on such improvements in their town.
