NARRAGANSETT—The town council honored veterans who served during and after World War II on the eve of the anniversary of the nation’s entrance into World War II 69 years ago. Veterans who served their country received a certificate of appreciation from the town which included a special embroidered white star removed from a retired flag which once flew over Narragansett Town Hall.

Sallie Latimer, past-president of the Narragansett Historical Society, made the presentation. Also, Narragansett High School’s soccer team for winning the 2010 Division III Championship at Monday’s meeting.
During open forum, Town Manager Grady Miller said that a “big priority” for next year was taking care of the town’s streets after a citizen commented about the poor condition of a patch of road near his home. Miller said the town’s streets were in “deplorable condition” and that in two years a bond issue would be necessary. “The town has adequate money for maintenance, not reconstruction,” Miller said. “We need to start getting proactive with streets in the future," he said. Currently, town money is used for totally failed roads. Alisa Trainor Fleet suggested using sand to repair or fix the holes. David Ousterhout of public works said that this would not be appropriate.
