Smithfield, R.I., February 21, 2017 - Smithfield Little League this evening released the following statement after the Town Council tabled a Recreation Department Facility Use Policy Proposal.
"Smithfield Little League is pleased that the Town Council has tabled a proposal that would have created a financial burden for the league and its families. The league looks forward to collaborating with the School Department, representatives of the other Smithfield youth sports organizations and Bob Caine of the Parks and Recreation Department to develop a new proposal that ensures continued access to athletic facilities, including baseball fields.
