Smithfield Town Council President Michael Flynn said Town Manager Dennis Finlay is considering a request to change the name of Domin Avenue, which was named for John Domin, who once held a leadership position in the local KKK, The Providence (R.I.) Journal reported Monday.

Flynn said city officials have received numerous requests to change the road's name from Roger Schenck, a Smithfield native who now lives in Hawaii.

Flynn said any recommendations from Finlay will go before a new council to be elected in November.
