Newton’s City Council sent a proposal that would have made it illegal to park at the same meter, the same block or even the same city parking lot twice in the same day back to committee for further review.
On Monday night, Councilor Jay Ciccone (in photo), chair of the Public Safety and Transportation Committee (one of six councilors who had approved the proposal*) asked the item be sent back to his committee after new information surfaced. He did not specify what that “information” was.
*The other supporters were Councilors Auchincloss, Cote, Downs, Markiewicz and Lipof. Councilors Noel and Grossman had voted no.
