newton city councilNewton’s first ever City Council was sworn in on Jan. 1 and held its first regular session Monday.

So now what?

What would you like to see this City Council do — or not do — in 2016?

Ban paper bags too? Ban leaf blowers?  Revisit the tear down problem? Take a stance on U.S. immigration polices? Zoning reform? Find a use for the former Newton Centre Library?  Stop or support a Philip Neri and/or Turtle Lane project?  Switch to every other week trash pick up? Investigate turnover in the executive department?  Deliver the Boston Globe to your house? Approve a specific CPA program? More affordable housing? Less affordable housing? Fewer committee meetings? Parking meters in Waban? Enclose Gath Pool? Bike lanes? Seat cushions for those dreadful City Council Chamber benches?
