The city saw its lowest total of any previous week for the five days from Oct. 21 to 25, with 10,896 overall warnings generated, 322 of which were for vio- lations at red lights and the rest for speeding in school zones. That came after a combined 30,000 violations over the previous two weeks combined.

Councilor Terry Mercer, head of the ordinance subcommittee, pre- sented the revised proposal for a vote at the Oct. 23 meeting, saying a change also allows for properties that have previously been licensed for auto repair to be granted a license without taking the cap into account. Councilors John Barry III and Mark Wildenhain were the two no votes of the seven councilors who voted. Barry said he doesn't want to come across as disparaging toward those who run repair shops, but said City raises cap on number of auto repair shops By ETHAN SHOREY Valley Breeze Managing Editor ethan@valleybreeze.com See REPAIR SHOPS, Page 14 Honoring the dead Dussault and friends raise gravestones at Old St. Mary's Cemetery PAWTUCKET – For years, Tom Rogers gave the cemetery next to St. Mary's Catholic Church all the respect he could afford it, often working as a one-man crew to restore stones and spruce up the grounds.
