• The Needham Select Board presented a Certificate of Appreciation to David Roche, who retired as the town’s Building Commissioner after 11 years.
When a department head retires in town, it is a big deal. Needham may be a relatively large suburb, but it still maintains a small town feel in many ways. The contributions of the staff are noticed and appreciated, and this was especially true of retired Building Commissioner David Roche, who is credited for updating the town’s building department. The Select Board had a chance to say thanks to him at their June 27th meeting.
