CUMBERLAND, R.I. (AP) - The Cumberland Town Council plans to reconsider its approval of a ballot question asking voters whether they want to put a new public-safety complex on town-owned Monastery property.

The council voted 4-3 in favor of the ballot question last week. But Mayor Dan McKee asked the council to reconsider.

The Providence Journal reports McKee says he thinks it’s better to remove the question from the ballot and allow more time for people who want the complex to be built elsewhere to come up with an alternative location.

A meeting is scheduled for Tuesday night.

Under the proposal, the new public-safety building would be built on a northern piece of the Monastery grounds.
