NORTH KINGSTOWNâ€”On Tuesday evening, the votes were tallied for the sewer referendum in North Kingstown, and the outcome revealed a community largely in favor of sewers on Post Road North and in Wickford. Although only approximately nine percent of the townâ€™s 21,772 registered voters submitted, over 80 percent voted â€˜yesâ€™ for the two ballot questions.
The vote authorizes the town to finance $4.9 million for sewers in Wickford, which will see lines installed on Brown Street and areas of Phillips, West Main and Main Streets. $6.6 million will be utilized for sewers on Post Road, including areas surrounding the Quonset Gateway.
In a statement released Tuesday evening, North Kingstown Town Council President Elizabeth Dolan and members Carol Hueston and Kerry McKay thanked the community for voting positively for sewers.
