Woonsocket City Council proceedings

October 28, 2022 Minutes - Special Meeting

The special meeting of the Woonsocket City Council was called to order by Mayor Richard Reider at 6:00 p.m., Friday, October 28, 2022, with the following members present: Arin Boschee, Joel Rassel, Darin Kilcoin, Brandon Goergen and John Baysinger. Derek Foos attended the meeting via a conference call. Finance Officer Tara Weber was also present.

Motion by Goergen, seconded by Baysinger, to approve the agenda. Motion carried.

Discussion was held on implementing a discretionary formula for a property tax break. Sanborn County had in the past had a resolution for a county wide tax break for new construction, but in 2022 the state changed how the formulas had to be written. Sanborn County removed the tax break, but a municipality has the power to implement their own discretionary formula for properties located inside the city limits. Motion by Goergen, seconded by Rassel to approve Resolution 2022-1 Discretionary Formula for the City of Woonsocket.  Roll call vote was taken Darin Kilcoin – yes, Arin Boschee – yes, John Baysinger – yes, Brandon Goergen – yes, Joel Rassel – yes, Derek Foos – yes. Motion carried.
