Tonight, Mayor Warren announced a proposed override package to address Newton’s critical needs in public safety, education, and infrastructure.  The proposal includes 3 ballot questions to be voted upon on March 12, 2013.

  • an $8.4 million operating override that includes the expansion of Zervas School, funds for roads and sidewalk repair, four additional police officers to manage traffic and safety concerns, the renovation of the hub of our fire department: Station 3 and department headquarters, and rising school enrollment.
  • a $1.3 million debt exclusion override for Angier School
  • a $1.7 million debt exclusion override for Cabot School

The package was separated into 3 ballot questions in order to meet state guidelines for school construction reimbursement, yet it should be considered as one unified effort to help build Newton’s future.
