The City Council has decided to continue operating the Balboa Yacht Basin even after hearing a persuasive presentation by the Bellport Group, which wants to run the marina.

In a 5-2 vote Tuesday, with council members Gary Adams and Norma Glover voting in favor of hiring Bellport, the majority decided that it needed to keep control of one of the last city-operated ports.

Although Bellport's presentation indicated its operation would be more cost-effective than the city's, residents argued that they preferred Newport as their landlord.
