Monday being the 5th Monday of the month it’s time again for another Newport City Council Town Hall meeting. The council launched the “Town Hall” program after they decided that they should meet townfolks out where they work and live, and not just hold-up at City Hall.
The council says it wants to hear from the citizens of Newport – what’s on their minds, their ideas on how to make Newport a better place to work, live and recreate, create jobs, promote commerce and enhance tourism.
Monday night’s Town Hall will be held at Mo’s Annex on the Bayfront at 657 SW Bay Boulevard beginning promptly at 6pm. On the agenda is an update on the renovation of the Maritime Museum. City Public Works Director Tim Gross will give everyone an update on sewer, water, streets, sidewalks, storm drain and other projects around the city.
Community Development Director Derrick Tokos will give an update on the creation of a Bayfront Parking District.
Police Chief Mark Miranda will cover the latest developments in helping to ensure that Newport residents understand how to prepare themselves to cope with varying levels of natural disasters.
After that, the floor will be open to any topic anyone would like to talk about and address concerns and ideas about how to improve Newport.
Everyone is welcome to come down to the Newport Town Hall Meeting. It’s FREE and again begins 6pm, Monday night at Mo’s Annex at 657 SW Bay Boulevard.
