The Newton City Council voted 17 in favor, six opposed and one absent (Lennon) to reduce the council to eight at large and eight ward councilors. Voting no were councilors Albright, Crossley, Fuller, Gentile, Hess-Mahan and Leary.

However Mayor Warren has said he will not support this home rule petition, which will kill the proposal for 2017.
