Reapportionment

Senator M. Teresa Paiva-Weed, Representative William H. Murphy and
Representative Bruce J. Long appeared before the Council to answer their
questions and concerns regarding reapportionment.  

Senator Paiva-Weed informed the Council that she does not expect any
changes to the proposed alignment of Jamestown and Newport on the Senate
side.
      Additionally, Senator Paiva-Weed noted that she anticipates this
will become a Bill with meets and bounds within a week or so.
      The Bill would then go to committee for public hearing. 

There was a consensus of support for the Senate redistricting; however,
the Council expressed several concerns relating to the House
redistricting.  

The Council discussed the need for the redistricting to be structured so
that communities would remain compact and contiguous, cross as few
municipal lines as possible and remain aligned with communities with
similar interests.
      It was the consensus of the Council that this was not accomplished
in House Plan "Alternative D".  

Representative William H. Murphy stated that he would inform the State of
the Council's concerns.
      However, Representative Murphy was not sure if there would be any
further adjustments to the House Plan.  

Representative Bruce J. Long commented that he is prepared to serve
Jamestown and assist the Council in any way.  

It was moved by Councilor Willis, seconded by Councilor Long to ask the
Legislature to reconsider the way the House Plan, "Alternative D" has been
divided and request them to reconsider the way they have aligned Jamestown
and please align the Town of Jamestown with Newport.  

It was moved by Council President Settipane, seconded by Councilor Swain
to amend the main motion to include that our request for aligning with
Newport be based upon the historical and common interests that we share
and that it be contiguous.  So unanimously voted.  

The motion as amended was so unanimously voted.

SITTING AS ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE LICENSING COMMISSION

1)   Portuguese American Citizen's Club (Hearing continued from December
26, 2001)

HEARING FOR NEW LICENSE

CLASS B-VICTUALER BY A CURRENT CLASS D LICENSEE

Portuguese American Citizen's Club
dba: Portuguese American Citizen's Club
11 Pemberton Avenue
Jamestown, RI  02835 

Council President Settipane opened the hearing for application from the
Portuguese American Citizen's Club for a new Class BV Liquor License at
7:30 PM.

The Town Solicitor reviewed the guidelines for a Class BV Liquor License.
      In replying to a question of change of use, Mr. DeSimone noted that
the mere acceptance of a different class does not constitute an expansion
of use by the holder of such license.
      In addition, Mr. DeSimone informed the Council that he found nothing
in the enabling legislation that would prohibit a nonprofit organization
from holding a class BV License.  

In response to the nonprofit status, John A. Murphy, counselor for the
Portuguese American Citizen's Club informed the Council that all profits
are put back into the Holy Ghost Society and the organizations that they
support.
      Additionally, Mr. Murphy informed the Council that it is his
understanding that all zoning issues have been resolved.  Mr. Murphy
established the licensed premises as being the restaurant, large meeting
room and the fenced patio area on the north side of the building.

Council President Settipane presented the sketch of the area covered by
the Club's liquor license and noted that the Health Certificate issued by
the Department of Health limits capacity to less than 50.  

Mr. Murphy pointed out that the sketch shows the large meeting room, the
lunchroom and the patio area as the licensed premises.

The Town Solicitor advised that the large room could continue to be used
as a function room.

Joseph Perry, President of the Club, reiterated that the function room and
outdoor patio would be used in the same manner as it has been in the past
and that the change in class is to make it more convenient for the public.
      

The Council discussed their concerns relating to the seating capacity
limitations set by the Board of Health.
      The Town Solicitor stated that it was his belief that this is not a
limitation on the ability of the Council to grant a license that permits
them to serve alcohol on the premises.
      Mr. DeSimone further stated that it would be up to the Department of
Health to set any limitations on seating capacity.

In response to a question of food being available and served seven days a
week, Mr. Perry informed the Council that on Sunday's the kitchen is not
open; however packaged food such as sandwiches are available.  

Council President Settipane opened the hearing for questions from the
audience.

Robert Trout, 14 Lawn Avenue announced that he had no objections to the
PAC; however, he was concerned with sitting out in the summer and being
disturbed by the outside patio noise.
      Further stating that the PAC is located in a residential area and he
is concerned with an expansion of their use.
      He requested that the Council put a restriction on the outside bar.

Michael Toland, 8 Lawn Avenue addressed similar concerns to Mr. Trout's,
with the addition of his request that the lighting at the Club be
redirected so that it does not shine directly into his home.

Speaking in favor of the Class BV Liquor License were:

William Sheehan, Elm Street
Richard Deterra, Grinnell Street
Gloria Gardner, Narragansett Avenue
Arthur Christman, Windsor Street

Alan Salk, Representative of Narragansett Electric, offered to meet with
neighbors of the Club in an attempt to redirect the light from shining
directly into their homes.

It was moved by Council President Settipane, seconded by Councilor Littman
to grant the application for the Portuguese American Citizen's Club for a
Class BV Liquor License subject to the rules and regulations of the
Department of Health, the Zoning Code of Jamestown and limitation that no
outdoor bar be placed on the patio.  So unanimously voted.

Councilor Swain noted that this is an annual license and encouraged
neighbors to come back to the Council if there are any issues that should
be discussed.  Additionally, Councilor Swain reminded the Portuguese
American Citizen's Club that they have informed the Council that they are
not intending to expand but rather to be in compliance with present
procedures.

Councilor Willis suggested that the Council begins the process of changing

providing the necessary information so that it could be included in time
for the 2002 Financial Town Meeting.  

The Town Administrator noted that the fiscal year is governed by the Rhode
Island General Laws that states that the fiscal year can only be changed
to July 1st.
      Because Jamestown has a Financial Town Meeting, the only way that
our fiscal year can be changed is at the Financial Town Meeting.
      The Town Administrator informed the Council that she would work with

Representative William H. Murphy presented a proposal for a new program

      A draft of the proposed program was hand delivered to the Council.  

Beth Weibust of East Shore Road requested that the Council consider the
triangle at the intersection of East Shore Road and North Road as the
first site for inclusion in the Adopt-A-Spot program.
      Ms. Weibust informed the Council that this area was planted with
flowers in honor of Daniel Cabral and has been cared for by neighbors.
      This is an attempt to formalize the maintenance and upkeep of this
site.  

Representative Murphy suggested that he work with the Town Administrator
to put this program into effect in Jamestown.

Following a discussion, it was the consensus of the Council that this be
put on the next Town Council agenda.
      The Council requested that the Town Administrator and Town Solicitor
review the proposed Adopt-A-Spot program to ensure that it follow the
guidelines of Jamestown's Tree Ordinance and report back to the Council.

REPORTS OF BOARDS, COMMITTEES AND TOWN OFFICIALS

1) Town Administrator's report

--------------------------------------    

Town Administrator Report
January 14, 2002
    
    The following report consists of items of general interest to the
Council.
     I will be pleased to provide any additional clarification or
information you require.
    
    I received a call from William Ankner, Director of Transportation for
the State of Rhode Island.
     The state will be completing repairs on the Jamestown Bridge over the
next two weeks.
    
    Donald Haskell, the Town's Information Specialist has begun working on
the Town's Web Page.
     He will be meeting with department heads to determine what should be
included on the web page, with an eye toward reducing administrative time
(and costs).
    
    The Town has requested bids for trash hauling.
     Three bids were requested. However, we only received one bid. The bid
specification requested a five-year contract, with the Town having the
option to renew the contract for additional two, two-year periods.
     The cost for hauling will be $250.00/per trip, which is $150.00/per
trip less than what we are currently paying.
     The reason for the reduction is the previous contract included the
repairs to the trailers.
     BFI proposes a flat hourly dollar rate to repair the trailers.
     This gives the Town the option to have the Town, BFI or another
outside vendor complete the repairs on the trailers.
     Steve has reviewed the bid and is recommending we award the   
contract to BFI Inc. At this time, I would recommend the Council award the
bid to BFI, and request the Solicitor draw up the contract.
    
    The Town has also received bids for the new trailer at the transfer
station.
     The Town received two bids.
     The low bidder is Spector Manufacturing for the amount of $49,495.00,
with a trade in option of $1,500.00. I am requesting the Council award the
new trailer bid to Spector Manufacturing for $49,495.00, with a trade in
of $1,500.00.
    
    In the attached report from Tina Collins, she is recommending the Town
award the software bid to Fundware in an amount not to exceed $29,800.00.

    For you information I have attached the following items:
    
My attendance schedule for Council meetings for the next four months.
     I      appreciate the Council working with me on this schedule.

trip subject to CPI increases for the life of contract

The Town Administrator noted that the trash hauling bid does not include
repairs to the trailers; however, with two new trailers cost of repairs
should be minimal.

It was moved by Councilor Littman, seconded by Councilor Long to award the
trash hauling bid to BFI, Inc. at a rate of $250.00 per trip subject to
CPI increases for the life of the contract.  So unanimously voted.

exceed $49,495.00.  So unanimously voted.

c) Award bid for financial software to Fundware, Inc. in the amount not to
exceed $29,800.00

The Town Administrator informed the Council that this is the same
financial software package that the Jamestown School is using.  

It was moved by Councilor Littman, seconded by Councilor Willis to award
the bid for financial software to Fundware, Inc. in the amount not to
exceed $29,800.00.  So unanimously voted.
 
The Town Administrator informed the Council that the materials grant in
the amount of $1,500.00 for the Maple Avenue Eagle Scout project has been
received.  

The Town Administrator noted that bids have been received for the cost
analysis of the Highway Barn construction.
      It was the consensus of the Council that interviews be scheduled for
Saturday, January 26, 2002.  

Cox Communications

Councilor Settipane announced that Cox Communications would be airing
Channel 18 to cover the Town of Jamestown's connections with the North

2)   Report from Town Solicitor re: private roads located in the Foley
Plat

maintenance on platted streets that have not been conveyed to the Town and
are not currently improved to Town standards.   

In summary, the Town Solicitor noted that the Town may commence such
maintenance of the streets that it feels necessary for the public health,
safety and welfare.  

The Town Administrator informed the Council that there are three or four
roads in the Foley Plat that the Fire Department and Rescue Department
have had problems accessing the area.

Narragansett Electric:  

Kevin Menard and Alan M. Salk, representing Narragansett Electric,
notified the Council that the initial plan to install cable to provide a
new supply of electricity to Jamestown has been altered in order to
protect the eelgrass, of which approximately 3 acres have been identified.
 Mr. Menard informed the Council that Narragansett Electric is working
with Save the Bay on the protection of the eelgrass.  

There were several areas of concern that the Council discussed; those
being, height of the proposed poles and extension arms to hold the utility
wires; visual disturbance along Beavertail Road and Fort Getty Road; and
excessive tree trimming.  

Mr. Menard informed the Council that it may be possible to install the
cable using the same number or arms as presently used in that area.
      However, the height of the poles cannot be changed as the height is
dictated by the National Electric Safety Code.
      Mr. Menard assured the Council that Narragansett Electric would work
with the Tree Warden and individual homeowners when trimming the trees.
       Mr. Menard will provide digital pictures so that the Council can
see an example of this type of system. 

It was moved by Council President Settipane, seconded by Councilor Long to
allow Narragansett Electric to conduct four exploratory borings on the
Town property in the vicinity of the proposed cable laying at Fort Getty,
subject to the approval of Coastal Resources Management Council.
      So unanimously voted. 

Dennis Webster, Planning Commission member requested clarification on how
the Planning Commission could assist the Council.
       It was the consensus of the Council that the Planning Commission
and the Conservation Commission review the details so that the Council can
properly assess the proposals concerning the poles, aesthetics and the
conformity with the roadways and the neighbors that this project will pass
through and to request that they report back to the Council.  

Councilor Willis announced that the Rhode Island Tree Council will be
holding a conference in Newport on Saturday, March 16, 2002 to discuss
utilities, wires and trees and the different methods and techniques being
used.

letter from Representative Murphy regarding the fish processing vessels.
      So unanimously voted.

Representative Murphy informed the Council that he met with the Department
of Environmental Management, William Quinby, a representative of the fish
processing vessels, and residents in the Jamestown Shores to discuss
concerns regarding the fish processing vessels.
      Although Mr. Murphy was in support of the vessels presence in Rhode
Island, he raised concerns regarding excessive noise from the engines
which can be heard around the clock by residents and is requesting that a
more appropriate anchorage be proposed. Representative Murphy noted that
this is a pilot program to see if the fishing industry can support a
freezing operation in this area.
      It is expected that if a demand were proven, the vessels would be
anchored at Quonset Point.
      The Department of Environmental Management has given permission for
those vessels to be moved to another anchorage area.

Representative Bruce Long stated that the Department of Environmental
Management informed him that these vessels would be gone in three to four
weeks.  

Council President Settipane expressed his concern that the State had not
given the Town of Jamestown any consideration or notification regarding
the location of these vessels. 

Representative Long suggested that the next time this project is
instituted, anchorage be rotated between areas.
      However, Mr. Long believed that the best location would be at
Quonset Point.
