Open Forums with Mayor and Superintendent About Capital Needs, Feb 12 & 15

  • Sunday February 12, 2PM, Lasell College, Winslow Academic Center, 80 Maple St Newton
  • Wednesday February 15, 7PM, Oak Hill Middle School Cafeteria, 130 Wheeler Rd Newton

Join Mayor Warren and Superintendent of Schools, David Fleishman to discuss our capital and financial needs. Our finances are back on track because of our zero base budgeting approach and the 100 million dollars we will save over the next 5 years thanks to our recently negotiated union contracts. For the first time in our city’s history we have a capital assessment of all of our infrastructure needs- aided by revolutionary software that allows us to evaluate our needs on a risked based assessment. Although we have done tremendous work there is still more we need to do. We will discuss ways to address our capital needs, growth in the schools and continuing to make Newton one of the safest cities to live. The Mayor and Superintendent want to hear from you on the decisions we need to make going forward. We hope you can join us for one of these very important meetings.
