Councilors face tough decisions about Housing Initiative
The six members of the Newton City Council have a lot of decisions to make between now and when it is asked to take up the Newton Housing Initiative at its Nov. 4 meeting.
Monday’s marathon meeting, lasting two hours and 41 minutes, did so largely because of council discussions about the initiative. Councilors were divided on a number of aspects of the plan, although there appeared to be a consensus that most were supportive of the initiative in general.
City Administrator Bob Knabel gave a brief presentation on two major aspects of the initiative that he said required discussion before proceeding: funding and implementation. He asked the council to provide him with a consensus of whether or not city staff should continue to work on the project afterward.
