A Needham Patch reader recently sent in this photo of one of the new light and banner poles in Needham Center, which is missing three of the four brass balls that decorate the pole and help secure banners.
"What is happening to the brass balls on the ends of the banner staffs on the ?" the reader wrote. "Are the kiddies making off with them?"
With town officials talking about , or "streetscaping," this reader's question is a good one to consider. What happened to this fixture, and how can the town address the problem or prevent issues with future elements installed in the downtown area?
