Needed: wise Newport citizens willing to serve on Newport Zoning Board of Review

There is an immediate opening on the Zoning Board, and only one candidate currently available. There are openings coming up on several other Newport boards & commissions. Anyone who has served on a Newport board, this is a rewarding exercise in citizenship, as well as a good way of learning more about how our City functions, and about all of its neighborhoods. Please consider the need for wise heads on the Zoning Board, and either volunteer or spread the word. Board and Commission members are appointed by the City Council and applications are handled through the Mayor’s Office. Contact Raphe Sciola to learn more at 845-5437 or email: . The application form is also available on the City’s website: .
