The Narragansett Town Council is expected to vote on a controversial resolution next week, which will essentially give local law enforcement permission to go against executive orders issued by the governor. 

The resolution directs “the Narragansett Police Department and other Narragansett Law Enforcement entities to not enforce the State of Rhode Island’s coronavirus-related executive orders.” 

The resolution, placed on the agenda by town council president Matthew Mannix, is set to be discussed during the Monday, May 18 meeting which will take place virtually.
