Council discusses Nuisance Code
The Newton City Council’s Monday night meeting mainly focused on the proposed updates to the city’s Nuisance Code, but before the discussion took place, Newton Mayor Michael L. Hansen asked for a moment of silence for those who were affected by Monday’s Boston Marathon bombing.
Hansen began by offering some clarification on the changing of the council’s format.
“This format was not a result of legal services provided to the city of Newton,” Hansen said. “It has given us a opportunity, since we do have a contract with a legal service, to provide to this community, to be wise in our allocation of funds that we spend for those services by not having an attorney sitting here when they are not needed. From time to time, Mr. Hamilton, who served our community well as city attorney, would from time to time not be needed in the meeting, but because it was his part of his job duties, he was here, and you saw him at every council meeting.”
