News from the Town of Needham

Needham Blue Tree

Good evening, Needham!

Happy New Year! We hope you and your families had an enjoyable holiday season and are ready for the year ahead.

With our first snow storm of the season expected tomorrow, residents and employers are asked to shovel sidewalks and hydrants near their homes and businesses. This will help protect the safety of the community. Please also clear the catch basins near your home as the forecast is calling for rain on Sunday.

Like most other cities and towns across Massachusetts, Needham is experiencing a shortage of snow contractors. DPW crews and contractors will be out tonight through the storm cleanup tomorrow. Please be patient as crews clear roadways. To report an issue, please use SeeClickFix.

Need some other winter reminders or have a winter public works question? Check out DPW’s Snow and Ice page here.

Please also note that the RTS will be closed Friday due to the storm. Operations will resume Saturday, January 8th.
