Aldermen to meet with Newton mayor again on high school project

Posted by Ralph Ranalli January 5, 2008 08:25 AM


Newton Mayor David Cohen will provide the Board of Aldermen an updated cost estimate and revised schedule for the estimated $171 million Newton North High School building project during a special meeting Jan. 16, city spokesman Jeremy Solomon said.

After the mayor's short meeting with aldermen in December, which was held before a regular board of aldermen meeting, numerous aldermen left saying they were dissatisfied with the time constraint.

Board president Lisle Baker arranged next week's meeting after numerous aldermen said the first meeting did not provide them with enough of an opportunity to question Cohen about important aspects of the project.
