NEWPORT-Members of the Newport Utilities Board of Directors learned Tuesday that the utility will renew their contract with Trinity Benefit broker Drew Mann to provide healthcare insurance for their employees.

Pointing out that because this is a "non-service" contract, no board action was required, NU Human Resources Manager Connie Frisbee told the board that the decision was made by a committee who asked interested companies to complete a 43-question survey regarding their services.

"It is our recommendation," said Frisbee, "to continue with Trinity because of their proven track record."

On hand to address the board were Mann and another broker, Cindy Moyers, who said she has 35 years experience in insurance and is locally based.

Sherry Frisbee, NU Finance and Accounting Department Manager, echoed Frisbee's comments, saying, "I highly recommend Trinity. They have done an excellent job."
