Newport Fire Hall, City Hall may get new floors
The Newport City Hall and Fire Hall No. 1 are in need of new flooring, City Administrator Deb Hill said earlier this month.
With the city’s 125th anniversary next year, Hill said the city is interested in fixing stained, worn floors in both the council chambers and City Hall offices as well as the upper floor of Fire Hall No. 1.
The main driving force for moving up the floor replacement, Hill said, is that the office floors at City Hall actually slope toward 7th Street.
