Blogging live from the Board of Aldermen...
Postponing a showdown on $1.6 million in further funding for the new Newton North High School project, the board voted to take the issue up at their next full board meeting on Sept. 5.
Project proponents, led by Public Facilities Committee chairwoman Sydra Schnipper, couldn't muster the votes to pass the item last month. Now they are pushing the vote off until after they give another presentation on the project to the full board next Wednesday, when they hope to change the minds of some reluctant colleagues.
The aldermen have also apparently pushed off discussing the issue of artificial turf for the athletic fields at Newton South High.
Hmmm, maybe those reruns wouldn't have been so bad after all.
