Delay in Newport’s efforts to acquire fire boat…

Move to acquire Newport Fire Boat hits a temporary snag. Year delay in acquiring the boat.


A recent effort to acquire funding for a fire boat to better protect Newport waterfront buildings, boats and ships has hit a snag. While the city of Newport was gearing up to apply for a grant to fund the fire fighting vessel, new federal rules were being enacted, which made Newport’s timing for the federal grant application literally dead in the water.

So Newport Fire Chief Rob Murphy and City Manager Spencer Nebel have informed the city council that they’re going to delay the grant until the city complies with the new federal requirements, which we’re told the city can do, and then re-apply for the fire boat grant next year.

Here’s Chief Rob Murphy’s memo to Mr. Nebel.
