Cup o’ (Pro)Jo: May 2, 2010

Mayor Cicilline proposed a $639 million budget on Friday that calls for no increases in taxes. The budget is 3.5% costlier than this year’s and is slightly less than 2009’s $618 million budget. While property tax revenue is expected to stay stagnant, spending will likely increase by $21 million due to the higher cost of Providence’s debt payments, increased health and pension costs and wage increases for unionized workers.

The Wildlife Clinic of Rhode Island has been caring for injured and abandoned wildlife since 1994. Located in Saunderstown, RI, the clinic is the only facility of its kind in the state. Check out the Projo’s video for adorable animals and the important work of the rescuers who care for them.

Zombies were out in full force Friday night, terrifying pedestrians, drivers and others on College Hill. April 30th marked the 4th annual Zombie Night, an event staged by RISD students looking to harness their artistic talents to impersonate the undead.
