PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

July 14, 2014 - Deadline for online credit card tax payments extended until Friday

WARWICK – Mayor Scott Avedisian announced today that, due to a technical problem the City’s vendor was experiencing last week, the deadline to make tax payments online with a credit card has been extended to this Friday, July 18. As of this morning, credit card processing had resumed without incident.

“We realize that for many people, using the online credit card system is the most convenient or practical way for them to pay their tax bills,” Avedisian said. “Extending the deadline is the fairest way to ensure that those who pay online are not penalized because of the technical issues the vendor was experiencing. We appreciate taxpayers’ understanding and apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused.”

 The deadline is extended only for credit card payments. The deadline for other forms of payment remains the same –  tomorrow, July 15.


July 9, 2014 - WARWICK - Portion of Rocky Point walking path to be closed temporarily to accommodate demolition work at former amusement park.

Residents are advised that, for safety reasons, a portion of the walking path at Rocky Point will be closed temporarily beginning Monday in order to accommodate the demolition work that is the first stage in efforts to transform the entire property into a new coastal state park for the public to enjoy. It’s estimated that the portion of the walkway, in front of the Shore Dinner Hall, will be closed for two to four weeks.

The state Department of Environmental Management began demolition and site restoration at the state-owned portion of the former amusement park earlier this month. Work includes site preparation for asbestos removal work and demolition of structures, including the Shore Dinner Hall and the Palladium/Windjammer. Asbestos removal and site restoration work will also take place at main buildings and in the midway area. This phase is expected to take 75 days to complete. Several remaining cottages will also be demolished.  Cost is $3.064 million.

"The demolition and site restoration work is an important step in the process of opening the entire park for public access,” said Mayor Scott Avedisian. “We appreciate residents’ cooperation and understanding while the portion of the path is closed so this phase can move forward as quickly as planned."

In 2007, with the help of state and federal funding, the City secured ownership of 41 acres – a full mile of coastline – at Rocky Point. City workers transformed the property into an attractive waterfront destination, which includes a public parking area, new landscaping, picnic area, improved beach access, and the path, which wends along the shore, offering spectacular views of the Bay.

In March of last year, DEM acquired the remaining 83 acres, which will be integrated with the city’s property. DEM and the City will work cooperatively with a variety of stakeholders and the public to restore the property. Potential improvements to the park include fishing access, access to the property by boat, development of a walking path system, fields and other recreational amenities, according to Janet Coit, DEM director.
