Default Beautifife Newton

Demo old houses, get the campers out of the yards. Newton is a old town full of old houses 100's of years old. Way outdated sewer/storm systems that regularly flood and send sewage back into homes, due to bad decisions by the city council years ago, which they still deny any responsibility for, and claim its whatever homeowners pumping their basement drains into the sewage system and requiring them to pump it into their yards which actually flows into the street storm drains, storm drains/ sewage is actually the same pipe, Years ago it was acceptable to dump every thing into the same pipe which dumped into what ever creek and eventually into what ever river. Of course it's illegal now but still happening. Yes we have sewage plant in name only so much is bypassed.
