Newton faces tax rise of $11.4m

Job, building cost to total $143.5m

A decade after Newton’s last successful override of Proposition 2½, Mayor Setti Warren asked residents Monday to pass tax increases to help pay for $143.5 million in new building projects and additional employees.

Warren is seeking a total of $11.4 million a year in additional tax revenue to pay for three school construction projects, to replace the Newton Centre fire station and headquarters, to fix streets and sidewalks, and to hire more teachers and police officers.
