Telephone service in and out of Newport City Hall is “spotty” at this hour. There’s a problem with a computer system that regulates it. Some calls get through, others don’t. The company that is responsible for data lines in and out of city hall is working on it.
BUT FOR NOW…anyone who has an emergency and who needs to talk to a police officer or firefighter, call 9-1-1. That’s your safest bet. In fact it’s the best number to call anyway.
Again, they’re working on it.
