City Council President Pro Tempore Michael Correia Puts Criminals on Notice in Providence

This morning Providence Police Narcotics Officers made several arrests of prostitutes and street level drug dealers along Atwells Avenue, Newark Street, Cutler Street, and Academy Avenue after City Council President Pro Tempore Michael Correia (Ward 6) contacted the Providence Police Department.

“Over the past several weeks I have received numerous complaints from constituents informing me of illegal activities happening in the area,” stated City Council President Pro Tempore Michael Correia. “My biggest concern was for the safety of our residents, and that of our young students who were being exposed to such activity while they waited for their buses in the morning. This sends a strong message to the community, and those that would commit crimes on our streets, that we will not stand for it. As an elected official I have a sworn duty to uphold the law, and that is why I shared the information with the Police Department.”

This is an ongoing case, and the undercover operation will continue. President Pro Tempore Correia continued, “Quality of life is of the utmost importance to my colleagues and myself, and to have criminals operating in plain sight diminishes that quality greatly. I want to personally thank the men and women of the Providence Police Narcotics Division for their dedication and hard work in ensuring that our streets are safe for all who live and visit Providence.”

If you see a crime, or expect a crime is being committed please reach out to the Providence Police Department by calling 401-272-3121 or by reporting it online at http://bit.ly/2IZB09q.

Council President Pro Tempore Correia Announces Ward 6 Infrastructure Projects

City Council President Pro Tempore Michael Correia announces over $100K in infrastructure improvements in Ward Six neighborhoods.

“My job as a Councilor is to advocate for my constituents, and to support quality of life initiatives that will benefit everyone in our community,” stated City Council President Pro Tempore Michael Correia. “Investing in sidewalks and street trees are important to my neighbors and helps create pride and place. Taxpayers deserve to have city services that work for them, and as long as I am in office that is where I am laser-focused.”

President Pro Tempore Correia has allocated $6K for street trees on Academy Avenue, Atwells Avenue, Chalkstone Avenue and Berlin Street in Ward Six. He has also authorized $100K for the repair and replacement of sidewalks along Academy Avenue and is installing a pedestrian push-to-walk button installed at the corner of Manton Avenue and Sisson Street.

“As a City Councilor I am awarded funds through the Neighborhood Infrastructure Fund and I ensure that every penny is spent on bettering the Ward. Fixing and repairing these sidewalks will provide pedestrians safe places to walk, homeowners pride in their property, and along with the street trees will help to beautify the neighborhood.”

The infrastructure work is expected to be completed no later than the end of November.

Statement from Council President Pro Tempore Michael Correia Regarding the Suspension of JUMP Bikes

With today’s announcement, the City has taken a positive step forward in addressing the safety concerns of residents by suspending the JUMP Bike program.

After engaging with the community, the overwhelming response was that this initiative, although good in theory, lacked key controls such as a safety and retrieval plan. My Council colleagues and I put forth a resolution in July that has prompted the administration to take action, and we look forward to working with them to create a program that works for all residents.

I want to commend the Providence Police Department for doing a fantastic job responding to complaints and investigating the problems associated with the JUMP Bikes over the past year. The City Council is committed to making sure that the need for reliable and affordable forms of transportation continues to be a top priority, and will work with our partners in government to achieve that end.

Michael J. Correia, President Pro Tempore, Providence City Council, Councilman – Ward 6
