After unsuccessfully failing to use a parliamentary procedure to suppress voter participation in a referendum over the Northland project,  Right Size Newton is trying again; this time alleging that the Newton City Council bypassed “the open meeting law thereby preventing residents from providing input into the largest development project in the history of Newton,” the Newton TAB reports.

Asked if the complaint would impact Tuesday’s City Council vote on a date for the special election, City Clerk David Olson said, “The vote can go forward tonight. In the unlikely event that [the attorney general finds] a violation, they have a number of options including the vote be retaken.”
