MIDDLETOWN MEETING MATTERS

MIDDLETOWN TOWN COUNCIL 


When: Monday night.

Where: Middletown Town Hall, 350 East Main Road.

Absent: Emily Tessier. 

Of note: 

  • Opening the meeting, President Paul Rodrigues welcomed Peter Connerton and Emily Tessier to the 2022-2024 council, saying he and the rest of the group looked forward to working with the new council members and were excited to hear their ideas.
  • Applauded the work by East Bay Community Action Program’s “Molar Express” event on Dec. 29 from 8 am-5 pm at Linden Park, 141 West Main Road. Rodrigues and Councilman Dennis Turano explained free dental visits for 2-21 year olds were offered as part of the “Express” visit, which was open to all, not just local residents.
  • Set aside $2,000 donation for the “2023 Night To Shine” prom night experience for 14 year olds and older on Feb. 10 from 5-9:30 pm at OceanPointe Church, 66 Valley Road. To loud applause from the audience, the event was complimented by the council as exactly the type of event that makes Middletown a special place to live, work and play.
  • Heard about a “Community Conversation” about education event sponsored by the “Newport This Week” newspaper on Dec. 15 from 4:30-8:30 pm at Innovate Newport, 513 Broadway, Newport. Rodrigues said the event was an important one and would give students, parents, educators and others an opportunity to speak about what they’d like to see with education moving forward.
  • Provided thanks to public works Director Robert Hanley for the condition of the Tibbett’s property, the beaches and family campground, a credit to the town’s public works team.

Next meeting: Tuesday, Jan. 3, 2023 at 6 p.m. in Town Hall.
