Behind the Scenes of Newton's City Council

Written by Director of Government and Educational Media


The City of Newton’s legislative branch of municipal government is comprised of a 24 member elected City Council. NewTV’s series entitled Councilors at Work explores how our elected leaders make decisions.


CityCouncilHosted by Councilor Lisle Baker, President Emeritus, the program helps to explain the committees of the Council and relationships working within city departments. Citizens who watch or attend the full Board meetings may miss much of what the Board does, as a comprehensive vote is taken through the “first call of committee reports”. Viewers will get an in-depth perspective on the workings of these committees.


Eight new programs were recently produced for the current term and are airing daily on NewTV’s Government Channel at 6:30pm. We hope that you will find the series informative and follow up on the invitation to get involved in your city government!
