Newport City Council rather busy Monday night…

Newport City Hall

The Newport City Council finally got what they’ve been asking for for quite some time.   Plans are moving ahead to have the Oregon Coast Aquarium install electric car chargers.  One charger installation is ahead of the pack but the other two charging stations should follow fairly soon thereafter.

The council also learned that walking and biking to school will soon be a bit easier for school children when they get some walking and biking improvements along Northeast Harney and Moore Drive.  But there is still serious concern about kids getting out of school and running out toward the street to get their ride home.  Several council members gave their support to have the schools maintain control over how the kids come out of their schools and head for home.  One councilor mentioned that, after school, many kids dart out into the street to hook up with their ride home.   Something less than safe.  It was mentioned that it gets quite crowded right after school gets out at 3:20.

Governor Kate Brown has made it official that the Covid-19 facemasks can be done away with effective March 12th but if there are those who want to keep their masks on, that’s fine too.  But it needs to be said that there are still many Covid victims still in hospitals and others being sequestered at home to continue their recovery.  As more and more people on the planet recover from their battle with Covid-19, the less dangerous the virus becomes in general.

And on the lighter side, the Newport Performing Arts Center is getting a quarter-million dollar HVAC air-circulation system.  They finally got the money.  No word yet on when the HVAC system will be installed.
