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.
At their July 16, 2015 meeting, the City Council approved an agreement with Municode to conduct a recodification of the current City Code and host it online. Municode has placed a temporary version of the City's current Code online while it goes through the recodification process. Click here to view the City's Code through Municode.
Please note that there is a search feature in the top right-hand corner that allows you to search all 13 Chapters at once for items such as "Fences," "Nuisances," or "Licensing." There is also a search feature in each individual Chapter/Section that allows you to search for specific words and will bring up each page where the word is found.
Please feel free to contact City Hall at (651) 459-5677 with any questions on how to use the new online Code.

Due to a number of odor complaints in the last couple years, South St. Paul has created an odor complaint form for individuals to fill out when noticing a strong odor. Newport residents can also fill out this form when noticing a strong odor coming from across the River. Click here to view South St. Paul's website.
The MN DNR has been working on draft rules for management of land use and natural resources in the Mississippi River Corridor Critical Area (MRCCA) since June 2014. The DNR requested that local governments within the MRCCA provide comments on the draft rules. The City sent a letter to the DNR in September 2014 regarding the draft rules. Since September, the DNR has analyzed the comments and is currently wrapping up a final round of revisions. Click on the links below for more information on the draft rules and MRCCA. Please contact Sherri Buss, City Planner, at (651) 292-4582 / firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or questions.
Xcel Energy has contracted with KS Energy to televise sanitary sewers in cities across their service territory, including Newport. Xcel televises sewers to ensure that there is no conflict between the sanitary sewer and gas service. Most services can be viewed from the public right of way: if for some reason, Xcel needs to televise the sewer from your property, a representative from KS Energy, will make contact to set up an appointment to do so. All KS Energy employees will have identification as a contractor for Xcel Energy.
This is a very important activity to ensure the safety of all customers. If you have further questions or concerns, you may contact Jake Sedlacek, manager, community relations and economic development at (651) 458-1228 or email@example.com.
