NEWPORT CITY â For the past several years, the Newport City Council has been trying to determine the most equable way to bill residential taxpayers for their water and sewer rates.
Currently, newer single homes, including 100 or so whose owners agreed to be sources of data, and many multi-unit apartment buildings, have already used meters.
After looking at the data collected over the past several months, the city council has determined that the fairest billing method is for all properties to have usage meters. The money collected will cover the cityâs expense for providing water.

On August 28, 2011 my wonderful husband left me the only way he ever would. Mark Edward Lyman was born March 01, 1957 in Greenfield, MA to Nancy Jandro Lyman and Richard Edward Lyman. The couple divorced soon after Markâs birth. He received his early education in Greenfield where he was near his beloved grandmother Myrtle Jandro Potter.
When he was nine, his mother remarried. Markâs stepfather adopted Mark and his older brother Doug, changing their surnames to his. The family moved to Reading, MA, where his younger brother Todd was born.
