Open Transparent Government
Over the last few months, the City has launched Open Central Falls: an open data portal for city residents to know more about their government. On this site, you can read city council ordinances and minutes as well as the city budget, city contracts, our recent audit and information about our pension system.
You can also now watch our City Council meetings on YouTube. That way, if you can't make it to City Hall, you can watch the meeting and interact with your City Council member via phone or email.
Empowering Central Falls Students
Every Central Falls student from grades 3 to 12 will be loaned a Google Chromebook Laptop in order to enrich their educational experience. The Pawtucket Times ran a great story about this program and how it will empower our students to succeed on even higher levels.
Celebrating Central Falls' Women
This past Saturday, over 50 people crowded into the Council chambers for the 1st Annual International Women's Day celebration organized by City Councilwoman Stephanie Gonzalez.
It was a tremendous event and you can view more pictures from the event here.
