Needham Select Board, 9/22/20

The Needham Select Board met on a variety of issues during their September 22nd meeting. The most poignant was a tribute to Needham’s retiring DPW Director, Rick Merson, who has decided to step down after 48 years of service to the town. Leaders from throughout town and state government turned out to wish Rick well as he prepared to close up shop at the end of the month. The event was carried live on our Municipal and HD Channels and streamed on this website. The meeting is currently processing for streaming online, and will appear in the window below once it is ready.
