John Mack - Newtown Supervisor

Getting Newtown Businesses Open Again

During the May 13, 2020, Newtown Board of Supervisors meeting via Zoom, Supervisor John Mack made a case for the Township to start thinking how it can help local businesses to re-open safely during the current and the next phases of COVID-19 restrictions. Several ideas were put forward such as rethinking the Finance Committee's purview, putting together an ad hoc business Task Force, etc.

This 45 minute podcast features a recording of that discussion. You can view the entire Zoom meeting here.
