They have a blast in the evening in Rutland; now the idea of having a blast in the morning as well is giving some pause.
The blasts in question come from the city’s whistle, a siren that has sounded at 8:50 p.m. for the last century.
City Alderman Paul Barbagallo says the siren used to sound in the evening and in the morning, and the city should go back to that. In recent years, it’s sounded only in the evenings.
The Board of Aldermen sent the question to its public safety committee, which is expected to hold a public hearing.
