Residents should watch the July 30, 2012 town council meeting debating the local tax subsidies for affordable housing (the stuff you and I have to pay). http://www.ci.barrington.ri.us/towncouncil.php The council has determined through the advice of the town solicitor that residents by law have to subsidize the affordable home property taxes right up to the point that they can be converted into fully marketable condo's (a huge developer windfall). The town solicitor admitted at one point that this was an educated legal guess, but that was good enough for the majority council to place on the residents this property tax burden forever. It is worth mentioning that the Ursillo law firm also represents the affordable housing developers. The town council should be suspicious about this opinion, but aren't. To change this legal guess, change the town council.
