Newport voters may be asked to approve a $98.5 million bond.

A look at what it would fund.

At a workshop on Wednesday, acting City Manager Laura Sitrin gave a presentation on infrastructure and construction projects city administration believes should be funded and worked on over the next five years as a part of the city’s Capital Improvement Plan.

However, the amount of work the city needs to do is outpacing the city’s ability to fund it.
