Facing multiple notice of violations and an order to vacate, the then-North Kingstown Town Council debated whether to vacate our town hall located at 80 Boston Neck Road at their February 22, 2016 meeting.

In August, Jake Mather resigned from the North Kingstown School Committee. The NK Town Charter states in section 903: In the event that the office of a member of the school committee shall become vacant from any cause, such vacancy shall be filled by the town council by appointing thereto the school committee candidate who, in the most recent general election, received the highest number of votes among the unsuccessful candidates in said election. If such candidate … has ceased to meet the qualifications for school committee, … the council shall appoint another qualified elector of the town to fill the vacancy. In any event, such vacancy shall be filled by the town council within thirty (30) days.
