North Newport Cemetery will soon be getting an expansion. Ken Dennis, Newport’s Buildings, Grounds and Cemetery Manager presented plans for an expansion on the Wells property adjacent to the cemetery. Newport acquired the property in the 1990’s for additional burial plots. Dennis plans to add 269 plots since current available burial plots are dwindling. Dennis told Selectman Gary Nichols there is about a year’s time before there is a problem.The Selectboard asked Dennis to get a preliminary bid on the project along with a bid for further expansion on the property.
