Since the early hours of this morning, I have heard from multiple neighbors regarding their concerns for their safety and that of their families after a man was shot and killed outside of the Steam Tap bar on Andem Street. Unfortunately, this is not the first violent incident that has occurred in relation to this location.
Rest assured that I am working with the Providence Police Department, the Providence Board of Licenses and community members to ensure that the Steam Tap is closed until a full hearing can be had by the Board of Licenses.
The safety of the residents in my community is paramount, and I will work to protect our quality of life at all costs.
Please keep an eye on the City Council website at www.council.providenceri.gov for more information as it becomes available.
Michael Correia, Councilman, Ward Six
