Because there have been revisions of revisions, the council members wanted to make sure they had the regulations as they were worded in February in front of them.

NEWPORT — Completing the revisions of the city’s mooring regulations and getting them enacted has been a difficult berth for City Council members, who delayed action again on about half the proposals Wednesday night.
Proposed ordinance revisions were developed by the city Waterfront Commission and announced to the public in early January and two well-attended public workshops have been held since then.
The council has had the proposals on its dockets since January, but has been dealing with revisions to make sure the boating community’s concerns are addressed.
The council approved changes to the mooring rules on an initial vote on Feb. 13, but since these are city ordinances a second and final vote is necessary.
