Rate Study Information

The City Council will be holding a public hearing on Monday, October 15, 2018, at 6:00 P.M., at the Newport City Hall, to consider approving a new utility rate structure for water, sewage, storm water, and infrastructure fees for the City of Newport. The City of Newport commissioned a rate study/analysis from FCS Group and has been reviewing the recommendations from this study since February of this year. The purpose of this study is to determine whether the current rates would generate sustainable revenues to operate, maintain, and rebuild the water, sewer, and storm water systems in the city, and whether the rate structure is fairly allocating the financial responsibilities for the system across the various types of utility customers. The City utility bill currently consists of a water, sewage, storm water rate, and an infrastructure fee.
