Needham Special Town Meeting, 10/30/23


Sixteen articles were on the Special Town Meeting Warrant, but only four of them generated any discussion by Town Meeting members. Those four, however, brought comments and questions full of insight opinion and passion. The representatives were engaged and eager to have their voices heard on not only what the Town should do, but how they goes about doing it. This session is currently available for streaming in the window below:
