Collette Steps Up to BEAT COVID-19

Pawtucket and Central Falls Put Out Call to Action to Organizations 

Collette has announced that it will serve as a collaborator and section leader of the CFP BEAT COVID-19 initiative. Colette will be contributing to the leadership of the CFP BEAT COVID-19 incident command team, providing the entire enterprise with logistical support, including information management services and phone banking.

"We are proud to support the efforts of both the City of Pawtucket and Central Falls," said Mike Vendetti, Director of Property Safety and Security at Collette. "We know that this is such an important task to benefit the community as a whole."

The CFP BEAT COVID-19 initiative has committed itself to reach out to every single household in the two cities, so that every resident in the cities knows what to do and who to call the moment they get sick due to the exponentially growing numbers of positive cases.

"We are deeply grateful for the resources and workforce that Collette and the Sullivan family have committed to this effort. There is no better corporate citizen anywhere," said Pawtucket Mayor Donald R. Grebien. "We estimate that nearly 50,000 people in Pawtucket and Central Falls do not have a primary health care doctor. Collette's invaluable assistance will help us reach out to every single household in our two cities."

 Pawtucket Leaders Commit to Hold the Line on Taxes

Coronavirus is hurting our residents and economy, taxes shouldn't

Mayor Donald R. Grebien and the Pawtucket City Council announced today that tax rates for the upcoming fiscal year billing cycle will be held flat at this year's rates for both residential and commercial property. This no-tax-increase budget commitment comes as more and more coronavirus-related restrictions get imposed on businesses and unemployment claims are skyrocketing.

"These are hard times for everyone. We're all in this together though. We want to provide some level of certainty in these uncertain times for our taxpayers. Therefore, the City of Pawtucket has committed to holding the line on property taxes this July," said Mayor Donald R. Grebien. "As people are closing their businesses and losing their jobs, we know the last thing anyone wants to worry about is how they're going to deal with their property tax bills going up. As our residents' finances get tighter so should the City's. We cannot turn around and ask families in Pawtucket to sacrifice more than necessary. The Administration and City Council will continue to prioritize fiscal responsibility and focus on our taxpayers' ability to pay."

"We're pleased to take this reasonable step up to help our residents," said Council President David Moran. "I view this as the moral thing to do. Our residents and businesses have been hit hard by coronavirus restrictions. They shouldn't be hit harder by their local government. We're here to serve them, after all. The Pawtucket City Council takes its responsibility to our taxpayers incredibly seriously and we will continue to focus on helping them get through the challenges that we are all facing."
