It is ordained that the Town Council of the Town of North Providence hereby orders the collection of a tax on the ratable real estate, tangible personal property and motor vehicles in a sum not less than $63,918,855 nor more than $67,740,718. Said tax is for the payment of the ordinary expenses and charges of the Town, the sinking fund, payment of the interest and the indebtedness in whole or in part of the Town, and for the other purposes authorized by law.
And it be further ordained that the collections derived from assessments on the ratable real estate, tangible personal property and motor vehicles of approximately $2,397,629,953 will not exceed $67,740,718 as certified by the Tax Assessor and the Town Clerk of the Town of North Providence.
SECTION 3. The Tax Assessor shall assess and apportion said tax on the inhabitants and ratable property of said Town on the thirty-first day of December, A.D. two thousand twelve at twelve o'clock noon, according to law and shall on completion of said assessment date, certify and sign the same and deliver to and deposit the same in the office of the Town Clerk on or before the fifteenth day of June, A.D. two thousand thirteen.
SECTION 4. The Town Clerk upon receipt of said assessment shall forthwith make a copy of the same and deliver it to the Finance Director in his capacity as Town Treasurer, who shall forthwith issue and affix to said copy a warrant under his hand, directed to the Collector of Taxes of the several sums of money therein expressed, of the persons and estates liable therefore.
SECTION 5. Said tax shall be due and payable on and between the first day and thirty¬first day of August, A.D. 2013 and all taxes remaining unpaid on the thirty-first day of August, A.D. 2013 shall bear interest from and after said first day of August A.D. 2013 and until collected, at the rate of twelve (12) per cent per annum, and all taxes and interest in addition to taxes shall be paid to the Town Treasurer immediately after the receipt thereof. Said tax may be paid in installments, the first installment of twenty-five (25) per centum on or before the thirty¬first day of August, A.D. 2013 and the remaining installments as follows: twenty-five (25) per centum on or before the thirtieth day of November, A.D. 2013; twenty-five (25) per centum on
 
or before the twenty-eight day of February, A.D. 2014 and twenty-five (25) per centum on or before the thirty-first day of May, A.D. 2014. If the first installment, or any succeeding installment of taxes is not paid by the last day of the respective installment period or periods as they occur, then the whole tax or remaining unpaid balance of the tax as the case may be, shall immediately become due and payable and shall carry until collected a penalty at the rate of twelve (12) per centum per annum from and after the first day of August, A.D. 2013 and until collected. Members of the armed forces and merchant marines of the United States in active service shall be exempt during the period of such service from the interest penalty requirements of this ordinance.
SECTION 6. The taxpayers of the Town of North Providence have an option whereby one-tenth (1/10) of said tax will be due and may be payable each month commencing the first day of September, A.D. two thousand thirteen (2013) and ending the thirtieth day of June, A.D. two thousand fourteen (2014) and shall bear the same interest as specified in Section 5 of this ordinance.

That with the passage of this Ordinance, all capital requests or items submitted by the Mayor as part of the Budget , the so called "Capital Budget", for the 2013/2014 fiscal year, which would be Funded on General Revenue, Other, Lease Purchase, Grants and Bonds shall require approval of the Town Council prior to their acquisition (either by way of General Revenue Funds, Lease Purchase, Grants, Bonds, Grants and Bonds or Other) and the inclusion of such within this 2013/2014 fiscal year budget ordinance is not an approved spending plan, unless these purchases are further approved by the Town Council before their actual purchase.
