Newport City Council poised to hire consultants to guide utility rate study

Newport’s recently constructed water purification plant…


The Newport City Council Monday evening will likely hire a consulting firm to guide the city through intricate details that will help them set new water, sewer and storm drain utility rates for city residents and businesses.

City Manager Spencer Nebel says it’s been so long since the last utility rate study was done they can’t find it. He said for many years various city councils have used the rates that were in effect at the time as the base line for raising rates – not whether the original rates reflected basic fairness.

Nebel says he’s recommending a consulting company out of Redmond, WA to evaluate Newport’s water, sewer and storm drain systems and forecast likely repairs and upgrades that will be major drivers of future rate adjustments. Cost of the evaluation and utility rate overhaul is expected to run around $50,000. The city wants to have the work done and the full report in front of the city council in time to adjust utility rates by next Summer.

The City Council begins at 6pm, Monday evening downtown at City Hall at the corner of Angle and 101.
