Newport is primarily a residential community and its strength is the people who live within the city. Newport is a small river community with residential streets bordered by large trees, which wind their way along the river's edge and the blufflands. Newport's small town persona is retained within its people and its physical environment even though it is within a 15 minute commute to St. Paul and Minneapolis. With a population of 3,435, Newport continues to encourage growth and development within the community.
The Newport Compost and Brush Site is now for the season. The hours of operation are Wednesdays and Fridays from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. All brush must be less than six inches in diameter and incurs a fee of $5 per cubic yard. Grass and leaves incur a fee of $5 per vehicle load. Please note that only brush and leaves in compostable bags will be accepted.
Public Works will be flushing the hydrants starting on Tuesday. During this time you may experience low water pressure and / or dirty water. Please check before washing clothing. You can clear your water by running cold water only. Please watch for City personnel in your area. Also, be sure to warn your children and keep them away from work areas.
If you or your neighborhood are interested in starting a neighborhood watch program, please contact Deputy Joel Muellner, Washington County Sheriff's Office, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
