Newton moves closer to new fire headquarters

Newton’s proposed new fire station headquarters moved closer to reality this week after city council members reserved fire department funding in the coming year’s budget.

Newton City Council approved $100,000 to be used toward engineering and design for the new fire headquarters in the 2012-13 Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) budget.

Newton Mayor Anne Stedman also created a Fire Station Review Committee that will examine possible properties to house the new headquarters.
