FALL RIVER — At a meeting on Tuesday, Fall River's City Council voted unanimously to support a proposed amendment to the state constitution that would add an extra 4% tax on any income over $1 million for Massachusetts residents.
Funds raised through the proposed measure — informally called the "Fair Share Amendment" — would be spent on education and transportation, according to the draft bill.
Massachusetts voters will decide on the proposed tax in the Nov. 8 election. If approved, it would take effect starting Jan. 1, 2023.
The motion to support the measure was made by Councilor Bradford Kilby, and was approved unanimously, without any discussion.

See How Much This Fall River Intersection Has Changed in a Decade
Well this is surely a blast from the past. While exploring Google Maps' street view feature recently, I came across an old still from 2012 mixed in with the more recent ones. It showed an almost decade-old look at Fall River's New Harbour Mall, which is now dead and has been replaced by the stores at the SouthCoast Marketplace. The more I looked around the intersection on William Canning Boulevard, the more I began to see remnants of the past, some that may now be long-forgotten for some. This Fall River intersection has changed so much in the past near-decade, but if you're needing a little look in the rearview to see how far it's come, check out some of the following stills.
