Mayor asks for capital study funds

Mayor David B. Cohen has asked aldermen to authorize $300,000 to review the state of the city’s municipal buildings, with an eye toward planning how to repair those in need – and how to pay for it.

The request comes as the School Committee has chartered a similar survey of schools and related buildings. Once completed, the inspections could cast a new light on municipal finances already under pressure from projected state aid, higher school expenses, and plans for a new Newton North High School.
