Newton Mayor Setti Warren last week declared the city no longer has a financial crisis.

Warren made the remarks as he presented the city's annual budget package.

"In 2010, when I took office, Newton faced a financial crisis, crumbling capital and infrastructure," he said. "The city had no rainy day fund. We established that fund and have built it up to $13 million, and plan to increase that number to $15 million."
