No 'talks' between Benoit, Flaherty

No 'talks' between Benoit, Flaherty

NORTH SMITHFIELD - In the May 29 article "Reverse gear on Anchor - Council OK now likely," we stated that Anchor Subaru owner Bob Benoit was considering eliminating the proposed zone changes for lot 14 "in talks with Flaherty."

Council President John Flaherty tells The Breeze that he personally has had no talks with the applicant or his representatives about the proposed change.

"What I heard about the applicant's willingness to drop Lot 14 came to me from the town solicitor's discussion with the applicant's attorney," Flaherty explained.
