Council was not interested at all in having a discussion about mechanisms to have the commercial interests in The Village repay the Town for fronting the cost of putting in parking for their benefit. Astonishingly enough, both Mayor Michael Raimondo and Mayor Pro-Tem Shields Richardson, who own restaurants in The Village, participated in and voted in favor of that action, despite their obvious financial conflicts of interests.
