The ballot campaign  Right Size Newton has launched to reverse the City Council’s 17-7 super majority vote in support of the Northland project, could cost taxpayers $145,902 to hold a special election, City Clerk David Olson told the council in a memo released Friday.

Olson added that if it could be arranged to hold the referendum on Super Tuesday (March 3) the cost to taxpayers would only be about $32,917.

But holding the vote on Super Tuesday will require several timely actions by the council, as Council President Susan Albright outlines in a separate memo.

Olson’s memo also includes some interesting historical turn out data.
