NEWPORT – A consumer survey is circulating in Orleans County to find out what draws people to Newport, what shoppers would like to see, and shopping habits. The results will help local businesses evolve, if they choose, to meet demands, and to entice new businesses based on what residents and visitors want.
A similar survey was conducted in 2008, but it is helpful to conduct surveys every few years, explained Bill McMaster, community resource development specialist with UVM (University of Vermont).
Other groups are also doing their own surveys, including NEK99%.

NEWPORT CITY – On any given morning, approximately 65 individuals make their way to the Behavioral Health Services (BAART) clinic on Union Street for their daily dose of methadone before going about their day.
Until Feb. 25, BAART dispensed methadone from a van parked at the recycling center on Coventry Street. BAART moved the dispensing site to the office site because of security and safety concerns for staff and clients, despite the fact that, in January, a gunman tried to rob the office for drugs.
