Needham Special Town Meeting, 10/24/22


Fourteen articles were on the Special Town Meeting Warrant which formed the schedule of events for this session. While many of them generated lots of debate at previous town meetings and while in front of other municipal boards, there were only a handful of articles that featured in-depth discussions. Still, it made for a long night, and town meeting members can be proud of the due process given to the meeting, if not the outcome of each of the articles. This session is currently available for streaming in the window below:
