The new Newton City Commission has now approved a budget with no tax increase for 2016.
All the commissioners are hard-working people who care about the residents of Newton and the tax burden they bear.
Each commissioner put forth great effort to keep the budget in line, and they will continue to work to tweak the allotments to get the most out of every dollar.
I am so very proud of all the commissioners and their efforts for Newton.
I appreciate them and wish them good luck as they finish up the budget work.
Thank you Glen, Barth, Leroy, Kathy and David!
Laurie Hartke, Newton
