We have lived in Newton for 25 years. Due to so many short comings by the town ,we are planning to relocate out of Newton. Unfortunately, the tax rate is one of the highest in the county. The schools are falling short of the "grade". The water tax is another huge burden placed on the tax payers of Newton. .No school busing, no garbage pick up. Crime rate is up! Just Food for thought!
