Rick Reed ended his final Selectmen’s meeting with the surprise renaming of Town Hall’s Multipurpose Room in his honor. The auditorium is now named the Richard T. Reed Room, with a plaque noting his dates of service to the Town.
In addition, the Selectmen signed off on the formal separation agreement between Bedford and the Town Manager. Reed, whose service will shortly end, noted that he will continue to participate on the executive council of the Middlesex 3 regional group, although not representing Bedford.
Reed received more applause and well wishes, as he did at the Special Town Meeting and at other recent board meetings.
