by Joseph Gresser
NEWPORT — The city council took a step toward finding a successor to Police Chief Seth DiSanto Monday when it approved a new job description for the post.

Chief DiSanto resigned at a special council meeting on April 22. Council members went into executive session and emerged to approve a separation agreement with the former chief.
